Spring 2017 – “That Little Bit Further”
The London housing market continues to surprise; we hear tales of stagnation, price sensitivity and falling values but our recent experience is “business as usual.”
We’ve undertaken surveys for buyers ranging from “down-sizers” to first-time-buyers on properties ranging from 1 bed conversions flats to 7 or 8 bedroom family houses.
Our clients have shown their appreciation, particularly when we have drawn matters they had been unaware of to their attention. A particular example was a house in Camden where the effects of HS2 construction over the next 10 years had gone undisclosed by the agents. Another was a flat in Soho where the sound penetration nuisance factor caused a rapid re-think on the part of our client. It’s not always the physical condition of the building that represents the most useful information for the client. We pride ourselves on going that little but further !
