Pink and shiny, Valentine's Day summed up in a sweet wrapper
Today is the day to show your other half how much they mean to you. Or politely disincline if you are fed up of seeing couples frolicking around with little floating hearts surrounding them.
But here at Unsworth Sugden it is a great chance to show clients that little bit extra TLC and make the most of the one day of the year where everything seems to turn red and pink.
Across the country star struck people will be celebrating love in one way or another with the usual cards, chocolates and grand gestures, and the PR team are no exception working hard on promoting what special offers are available from our clients.
The David Wilson Homes South Midlands team have been busy playing cupid by not only matching buyers to their dream homes but also by helping them to make that leap of faith up the aisle as well.
The team made a one-off offer to pay for a good proportion of the cost towards buyers wedding day (£5,000 in fact) when purchasing with them - and you can bet that couples all over Cambridgeshire were scrambling among one another to beat last weekend’s deadline of reserving their dream homes to start their lives together.
However if you did miss the boat, no need to panic because there are plenty more offers available to help make the Valentine’s Day loved-up feeling last longer.
Barratt West Midlands and David Wilson Mercia still have £500 up for grabs towards a romantic getaway with your loved one when you reserve a property between now and February 26th and legally complete the sale before June 22nd. Just quote ‘Cupid01′ to your sales advisor when enquiring.
These are just a few of the ways the PR team try to use seasonal events to generate a news hook and grab buyer’s interest for our clients.
But fear not if you don’t have a special someone to celebrate today with, here is a small reassuring fact to take away with you for those of us who wonder if they are the only single person left on the planet. In South Korea it is a tradition for single people to get together on a designated day of their own and unite over black noodles called Jajangmyeon, and mourn their single lives two months after Valentine’s Day on April 14.
It’s not a tradition I can see catching on in the UK but who knows, it’s always an option for those not lucky enough to be in love and looking for property.
