22nd Edition

Residential Is your property in safe hands?

experience: the difference


Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 22nd edition of our Residential Magazine which is delivered to approximately 250,000 homes throughout Essex and Greater London by Royal Mail. As we’ve moved forward into 2011 there have been very mixed reports in the media, most of which are distorted by the tendency to quote national statistics – there is no such thing as a national market!

In every part of the country, factors such as jobs, close proximity to major cities, road networks and airports all have a strong bearing on the local property market and with London right on our doorstep, Essex ticks all the right boxes in this respect.

January and February 2011 have proved very positive, a good sign for the Spring. Sales levels increased by 21%, viewings up by 65%, buyers’ looking for property was up by nearly 70% and those looking to sell their property increased by a similar amount. These results indicate continued confidence in the housing market in Essex whilst other areas of the UK are still finding the market challenging. But historically, that has often been the case. With new homes building at its lowest for nearly 100 years, demand for property locally is likely to remain strong. The lettings market is also buoyant with renting now no longer seen just as a short-term option. Many tenants see renting as a very flexible and cost effective option. Properties let have increased noticeably and the number of tenants registering and out viewing has risen by over 20%.

In fact the number of mortgages available to intermediaries, such as Beresfords, rose by 21% to almost 10,000, the highest level since September 2008. And just as we went to press, there was welcome news as one of Beresfords Mortgages major lenders, Northern Rock, reintroduced 90% loans to first time buyers.

Don’t just take our word for it.... We are immensely honoured by how many positive letters we receive from our clients on a regular basis. Here is one that made the Brentwood team particularly proud... Excellent Service!

Lindsey Davies

“I felt compelled to write in and commend you on the excellent service that Beresfords provide. I have always been wary of estate agents in general – having bought and sold two houses previously and been a professional tenant for the last 6 years, I have had a lot to do with various estate agents all over the London and greater London area. I can honestly say I am amazed and pleasantly surprised at the pleasant, professional, dedicated, “human” staff you employ. We have been dealing with Stuart at the Brentwood branch for sales, very accommodating and always returns my calls even though he is always busy. He negotiated the deal with the seller in a way that made everyone happy (not easy)

and felt they had the best deal. He also works Sunday’s! He introduced us to Katy Bowen-Nash for mortgages – again something I was wary of but she has been an absolute angel. She found us the best deal on the market, she is a true professional but also aware of the fact that we are not completely green and didn’t treat us like kids! Extremely quick and knowledgeable, I will definitely return when we remortgage in 5 years time. Her secretary Michelle we also found to be an absolute delight – providing updates unbidden, she was prompt and used her initiative with the Lender when they stalled over a technicality.

We are truly shocked and grateful that we have literally enjoyed this whole process! With nice people, that know what they are doing! In my experience that never comes near the word Estate Agent! I can only congratulate Beresfords on their quality Brentwood team and from what I hear this is replicated up and down the branches. If we ever move again then I will certainly come back to you (I literally will never use anyone else) and will recommend your firm to all I know.” Congratulations. Lindsey Davies

I must say that I have never experienced a team that has been put together so well!

Do you currently receive negligible annual interest on your savings or retain substantial equity in your main residence? If the answer to either of these questions is yes then you may want to consider investing in buy-to-let properties. Buy-to-let is often perceived as a venture for hardened property experts. However, Beresfords act for more than 500 landlords many of whom are first time investors. With properties to rent in so much demand at the moment, not only are they achieving a healthy

rental income but there is also excellent potential for future capital growth. Unlike a pension or savings account, property is a flexible asset which can be retained, sold or used to secure extra funding, possibly for additional buy-to-let investments. Beresfords have been established locally for over 40 years and can manage the entire buy-to-let venture on your behalf.

If you would like to explore the possibility of buying-to-let but are unsure of where to start, contact Steven Bond, Director, on 01245 397497 or email investment-team@beresfordsgroup.co.uk
