David Moss of Vertical View called on us at exactly the right time as we were looking for a way to show off the last 3 remaining apartments at The Hoist off The Vineyards in Ely. The development of apartments by Freshwater Estates (UK) Ltd are within about 2 minutes walk of the Market Place and all that central Ely has to offer including the Cathedral. What we wanted was an image that would show this relationship with the central amenities without the slightly strange perspective of Google Earth or the extortionate costs of hiring a helicopter to take the pictures.

David Clark was involved in the marketing of Freshwater’s development of ‘Barton Gate’ on Cambridge Road, Ely about 4 years ago and with Jeremy Nicholson, the MD of Freshwater, braved a platform on the front of a site teleporter to achieve a semi aerial view of this development. What has been achieved by David Moss with his specially adapted van is an infinitely variable viewing platform for the camera, at a height of up to about 100 feet above the ground. David Clark daren’t get that high above the ground and only hold on to a camera!

The Vertical View van was positioned in two locations and the mast extended. The camera is then manipulated by remote control with the images being viewed in ‘realtime’from within the van on a PC. When the image is considered right a mouse-click saves it to disk. David Moss can create a DVD of high resolution images straight away and David Clark & Company were in receipt of their pictures about 20 minutes after the ‘shoot’ was finished. Our web site is displaying these and we intend to use them as the basis for the next series of advertisments.

If you feel that your home sale would be enhanced by pictures that show more than just a flat view then call David Clark on Ely 665020 and he’ll be pleased to visit and see how the Vertical View photography can be put to work achieving interest and selling your home. David Moss is based in Little Thetford near Ely and is easily accessible for assignments.

Interesting Rental Market Research report on the Changing Face of Britain’s Landlords as Young Entrepreneurs enter the Market Analysis from has indicated a significant change in both the age and gender of private landlords in the UK. The traditional face of the archetypal British landlord is changing according to the study which shows there is a new, younger breed of landlord entering the private rental market; which would indicate that when it comes to property, many still think that there’s money to be made. Comparative data of landlord insurance policies sold by in 2006 (versus 2010) shows a marked increase in landlords aged 18-34. Likewise the gender gap is beginning to close as 39% of landlords insured via are female, versus 36% in 2006. Interestingly, when comparing the types of property being insured, there hasn’t been a statistically significant change since 2006 with terraced housing still accounting for the largest


CHRISTMAS 2019   The festive season is not far off and we just wanted to take this opportunity to confirm our opening hours over the Christmas holiday period and also to outline a few procedures: We will close for the holiday period at   Midday on 23rd December . Opening on   27th and 28th December between 9am and 1pm . We will open normally from   2nd January 2020 at 09.00 . Day to day issues which could wait until normal office hours resume on the   2nd January 2020 , should be reported then.   Our contractors may be on call but many of their suppliers close down over the Christmas period so parts can be hard to locate. We will not attend any “lockouts” over the Christmas break but can pass on the details of a good local locksmith if this occurs – the cost of which will, of course, be yours. A small request   – if you have   any   problems with your heating and hot water now or maybe an appliance that is a bit temperamental and you have been meaning to report the

What about afterwards?

It seems hard to believe that this COVID19 situation has been with us for just over 4 weeks. It actually feels like at least 2 months. If you can bear to watch the daily briefings from the government without reaching for a razor blade then you will be hearing that, just maybe, we are reaching the apex of the death rate curve and, just maybe,  there will be a relaxation of movement and a return to economic activity by most of us, subject to social distancing, masks etc. From a property market point of view, I've been decrying the gloom merchants who have been talking about 16% price falls. This is for reasons that beyond economics, people go their own way and predicting human sentiment to situations is not an exact science. I came across this article by a well-respected commentator called Roger Martin-Fagg who seems to see things my way - or I see things his way!  You have the time available so I recommend that if you want a spoonful of positivity then read this post: https:
