Win: A signed Phil Spencer book
This is a legacy post from the findaproperty.com blog which is now maintained as an archive within the Zoopla blog. Links have been preserved.
The FindaProperty.com office was all a buzz a couple of weeks back when we got to interview none other than the nicest bloke in property – Phil Spencer.
The Location Location Location star told us all about his latest book – How to Buy Your First Home (And How To Sell It Too) – a very practical tome aimed at, as you’d guess from the title, those who want to buy their first home.
Not only did Spencer – who along with Kirstie Allsopp is one half of the UK’s most famous property couple – tell us that he thinks first-time buyers are key to ensuring the long-term health of the market, but he served up some tips for those who want to get on the home ladder as quickly as possible.
“Try to choose a property that will suit you for the longest period of time,” Spencer told FindaProperty.com. “Also, try to chose a property that you can add value to during the time that you live there … because the market isn’t going to help you move in the future.”
All good advice from Mr Spencer. Oh, and he was nice enough to sign five of his books for five lucky FindaProperty.com readers. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with Phil Spencer in the subject line and you’ll be in with a chance to win one.
This competition has now closed.
