North Norfolk is one of the most expensive parts of East Anglia - prices in some coastal hotspots exceed the Suffolk equivalents of Southwold and Aldeburgh, with many villages near the north Norfolk coast having average prices in excess of £1 million.
Blakeney, Cley, Brancaster and some of the Burnhams are like this.
Fakenham though remains relatively affordable.
London house prices are falling down, falling down - to adapt the nursery rhyme - allegedly by £11,000 a year with a surfeit of sellers to buyers and there's capital gloom.
We are not seeing this in our pocket of north Norfolk at all but you still need to plan ahead to sell or let your home and here we share 10 quick property fixes:
Early June is a bit of a hiatus period in north Norfolk gardens, when the spring bulbs have faded: snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils have withered, and tulips have passed their blooming best, with only irises and lilies perhaps left to put on a show. It's the same with many shrubs: lilacs are fading, clematis montana are fading those magnificent magnolias are spent and that herald of spring: the lurid Forsythia has faded into an evergreen mass.
The garden though is now receiving maximum light and will be until the end of June and it's a good time to plan ahead, whether you're planning to sell, let or stay put.

You could say that we all have dreamy, rose-tinted visions of what our ideal home and location would look like. This probably won't be fixed either - your dream home at 17 may not be the same one at 47 or 87 or it may well be?
You may yearn for city centre living when you're in your 20s and 30s and who could resist the charms of say Norwich?
Later, suburbia may hold more appeal or a small market town like Fakenham may attract you.
What about rural living? With you squinting into the middle distance to see neighbours?
Or coastal on our beautiful north Norfolk coastline?
