According to a survey by First Direct bank more than a third of UK house hunters buy a property after just one 30-minute viewing – but, finds Jenny Knight, London buyers are a lot cannier

I

n London buyers average the most viewings in contrast to the rest of the country where only one in four viewed a property at least four times before making an offer. Daniel Woods, of Knight Frank Tower Bridge, says: “At the moment it is more of a home finders exercise with buyers who need more hand holding and support than previously. Any good agent knows that it is about giving time and real advice to enable an applicant to make a decision. Buyers can take a couple of months to decide although a small percentage make a quick offer and we have had a promising surge in the last week. “I’ve had offers over the telephone when people get over-excited about something they have seen on line – but you can’t go to a client with an offer like that. I always insist they actually see the property before I proceed.”

Probably the reason London buyers are so much more cautious is that prices are higher in the capital and with stamp duty rates up to 12 per cent, the costs involved in buying expensive properties are so high that home hunters need to be certain they have found exactly the right property. Daniel reckons that 85 per cent of buyers see the property they eventually buy at least twice and sometimes up to four to six times. “I had an applicant who looked at two flats and when he saw the second he said: “I’ll take it.” It was north of a million pounds but he decided to go ahead immediately – although he took a couple of weeks to come in with a firm offer. Obviously people who make quick offers have a survey because they need that second opinion that what they are buying is good value,” he explains. Other buyers need to keep viewing their chosen property just in case they suddenly spot some hidden flaw. Daniel says: “Another person saw a brand new flat four times. He kept opening the fridge door and looking into the wine cooler, turning on the shower and going out onto the terrace. He even got on his hands and knees to inspect the terrace floor. But in this market, coming up for Brexit, it is all about confidence and people like to be certain.” One way that Daniel ensures buyers are confident about their purchase is by persuading them to view several properties. Although applicants often want to see just one flat he always takes them to see at least two, and preferably three or four, so they can get an idea of what is available in his area and what prices are like.

HOMEFRONT

roydon used to be a laughing stock – seen as a drab, concrete backwater you merely passed through to get to and from Gatwick Airport. It was certainly not a place you would want to live, work or shop in. But the cranes visible from the train station attest to the explosion of development in Croydon over the past few years. Earlier this year Croydon (along with the Scottish capital) leapfrogged the City and West End in a league table of the 10 most coveted places for househunters. Even the children of Hollywood A-listers, are making a bee-line for it. Isabella, adopted daughter of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman and a make-up artist (pictured right with him), has moved from a rental in South Kensington with her IT consultant husband Max Parker to his home town of Croydon and into a semi worth around £450,000.

THE WORD Jane Robathan, Marketing Manager at Roy Brooks

L

ondon prices are adjusting and if you read the tabloids you’d think a major crash was underway. Rightmove data tells us September sales are up 4.8% nationally and 5.6% in London compared to 2016. Last September sales were flat. Lefty-London was itself adjusting to post-Brexit and strange voting results across the Atlantic, super prime London homes were shunned by foreign investors because of non-domestic tax hikes (super prime buying down 86%), domestic buyers buying at over a million were penalised with large raises in stamp duty (affecting a huge chunk of buyers in our patch) and buy-to-let smallholders were told they’ll be losing tax offsets in the very near future. Rightmove’s stats are being chucked around to talk the market up, but despite the hyperbole it is a very good thing that there is now movement in the market. In south-east London we’re seeing overpriced homes sit still. This is no time for sellers to hang on to a high valuation for fear of ‘losing’ money. With sensitive valuing and negotiating agents can uphold realistic market values and help steady up a wobbly ship. Soon the Bank of England will need to raise interest rates to offset rising inflation— no one expects this to be a ghastly rise, more of a balancing tweak. In other good news, the pound is stronger than its been since Brexit. Interestingly, Mark Carney has talked much of an imminent UK ‘wage boom.’ If wages rose above inflation levels gaining people more disposable income, the market would indeed receive a power jolt. Yes, prices have softened up in the

The Embassy Gardens Market is collaboration between EcoWorld Ballymore and Shepherds Markets, London’s leading market curator. It will kick off the festive season at Embassy Gardens, with a Christmas lights switch-on and the unveiling of a giant Christmas tree. The event will provide a welcome to the new American neighbours arriving with the opening of the US Embassy. As well as a wide array of seasonal produce, there will be live music. When finished the Embassy Gardens development will provide nearly 2,000 new homes. The first phase of the development is already occupied.

SHOWHOMES COMING Galliard Homes is soon to open its show homes on the brown field site at Plough Lane which is being developed into a sports-led destination, with a brand new stadium for Wimbledon Football Club as well as 602 contemporary apartments. The development will include a state-of-the-art fitness facility, retail space and a public piazza. The scheme makes it the third stadium-led achievement for Galliard Homes, following the Emirates Stadium and Upton Park.

HALF MARATHON

L

ondon’s Air Ambulance benefited by the tune of £6,000 thanks to 19 runners from Foxtons who took part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon. The 13.1 mile route took them through four of London’s parks: Hyde Park, Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens, before heading back to Hyde Park for the finish line. “It’s an amazing feeling, knowing that by undertaking this challenge you are also able to make a difference,” said Oliver Browne, Foxton’s sales manager. “We are so proud to be supporting London’s Air Ambulance and the life-saving service that the charity provides.” The race is the fifth the Foxtons team have run this year in support of their charity partner, including the Spartan Race, the London Marathon, the Three Peaks Challenge and Prudential RideLondonSurrey 100.

SCOREFORCHARITY Savills Sevenoaks, led by the planning team, hosted a 6-a-side charity football tournament – the Savills’ Cup, and raised £700 for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, last month. About 120 players took part, from Savills, Berkeley, Bellway, Barratt, Countryside, Redrow, Crest Nicholson, Persimmon, Sevenoaks RFC and Cripps and Warners, in the tournament held at Weald of Kent Grammar School in Sevenoaks. Despite a valiant effort, the Savills team (above left) was knocked out in the group stages on goal difference, as the top four teams in the group all secured seven points. The winner was law firm Cripps (above right), who beat Countryside in the final on penalties, with a full-time score line of 2-2.

THE BALLOON GOESUP K

night Frank’s Cobham office has celebrated its tenth anniversary with a drinks reception at St Georges Hill Lawn Tennis Club. One of the highlights of the evening was the magician who entertained guests with some amazing tricks. The event – complete with a 10th anniversary balloon – was attended by a huge turnout of Knight Frank staff, clients and local professionals.

WORD ON THE STREET Guzundering has made a comeback, is this a sure sign the market has turned? PATRICK RAMPTON RAMPTON BASELEY I would say that it has already turned, in fact it did so about 15 months ago after the referendum. And it might have turned again slightly after the shambolic election result this Summer. Overall we calculate that the market has fallen 8% on average around the Commons. I envisage further gloom as talk of interest rate rises rises (that does make sense) – as does the inevitability of the event’s occurrence. However, and it’s a big positive however, we still have lots of people who want to buy good homes at sensible prices – demand never goes away round here. I am reading that sales volumes are 30-40% down year on year over the river. We’re 13% up!

FUNKYFURZEDOWN A scheme to make Furzedown more attractive by removing unnecessary street furniture and laying new pavements is getting underway. It will also see the introduction of a granite wall, engraved with the word ‘Furzedown’ and illuminated with architectural lighting, to emphasize the area’s strong identity. New infrastructure will be installed to allow a large Christmas tree to be erected each festive season as a community focal point. The changes will also see additional parking provision for cyclists and also more short stay parking bays to make it easier for both local shoppers and passing customers. Local businesses will also benefit from extra bays for loading and unloading their goods and products. Some footpaths will be widened to give pedestrians more room and CCTV cameras will be upgraded to provide greater public reassurance and help deter crime and anti-social behaviour. Carriageway drainage will be improved to prevent puddles forming and also more serious flooding at this busy transport junction. Some speed bumps at the junction of Mitcham Lane and Thrale Road will be removed and more street trees planted to make the neighbourhood greener.

JASPER COLLIVER SAVILLS At the moment we are actually seeing the opposite happening in the market, with many buyers trying to gazump each other rather than gazundering. Currently we have a good number of active buyers looking across southwest London and for several properties we have under offer we have a back-up buyer waiting in the wings. There are of course still buyers who will try their luck to get a discount closer to exchange, particularly with the wider concerns about the housing market. However, because prices are now sitting at a more appropriate level than 2016 there tends to be more interested parties and owners are now more reassured that there are other buyers out there.

Q&A ASKTHEEXPERT

Online estate agents are shaking up the industry with low fixed fees – is it too good to be true?

Q

Darren Baker, Group Sales Director Lauristons

A

Often, if something seems too good to be true, then that normally turns out to be the case. And the prospect of an estate agent selling your home for the fees available from online agents is no different. The first key point for potential sellers to understand is that the term ‘online estate agent’ is rather misleading. Most online agents are nothing more than a listing service. Once they have taken the photos and placed your house ‘live’ on the internet, broadly speaking, their job is done given that the seller is now fully liable for the fee being charged irrespective of the final outcome. Where a full-service ‘traditional’ estate agent distinguishes themselves totally from the online offering, is that their job is not done until the seller achieves what they had set out to achieve; an exchange of contracts and subsequent completion for the sale of their home. In this regard, the ‘traditional’ estate agent and the seller are both working towards the same goal. The fees charged by the full-service estate agent may well be higher, but the risk is all on the agent. The agent, of course, comes with far more local experience, expertise and a database of buyers that they will be pro-actively approaching to sell your home to. The agent will work to ensure that, once you have received an offer, they also deliver the best possible value for you and the process is managed from acceptance of the offer to an exchange of contracts through the minefield of the conveyancing process.

Well connected?

And the schools?

Hang out at...

Where to buy

Herne Hill is a superb location with its array of excellent schools and shops as well as lots of green parks. It’s in Zone 2 for travel so really easy to get to Central London. It boasts a super Sunday market with lots of variety and even live music. The property is mostly Victorian and Edwardian but there is a variety of accommodation to be found. Trains from Herne Hill run to London Victoria and take around 7 mins. The Thameslink also runs through Herne Hill – so that takes in London Bridge, Farringdon and goes right up to Luton Airport. There are many buses that run into Central London and Putney – in fact all over the place! The schools in this area are super, with Bessemer Junior as well as the Dulwich Village Schools for infants and juniors, the Judith Kerr School and ,of course, the well renowned Charter Senior School, alongside that are Dulwich College, JAGS and Alleyne private schools. So my new favourite hangout is Christopher’s on Half Moon Lane opposite the Judith Kerr School. Christopher’s has an onsite bakery and the bread is to die for! They also do great coffee (very important) and lovely lunches with a glass of vino, if desired. It’s a really friendly place and the best bit is we sold Christopher his house many years ago! The Poets Corner conservation area — Chaucer, Spenser, Shakespeare and Milton Roads — are all Victorian but are built in different styles which gives these roads a certain charm and the North Dulwich Triangle bordered by Half Moon Lane, Herne Hill and Red Post Hill.

arrakech Design was founded in Sweden in 2006 after PerAnders Ovin and his wife Inga-Lill made a number of trips to Morocco where they became intrigued by the beauty and versatility of the tiles that have been made there for centuries. Initially they focused on classic Moroccan/Arabic/French patterns, adapting the colours to fit Scandinavian and Northern European tastes but soon realised the potential there was in combining the traditional material and production process with a contemporary design. In 2010 they launched their first designer line ‘Raval’ by the renowned Swedish designer Mats Theselius. Then in 2012 they teamed up with the Stockholm-based architects Claesson Koivito Rune on a collection of three patterns Casa, Dandelion and Stone. Dandelion (shown here) has since become a modern design icon. These initial collections have been followed by several more – many winning design prizes. The beautiful Aesop store in Covent Garden showcases ‘Dandelion’ in lawn/milk (above). Marrakech tiles are shipped worldwide from Sweden. Dandelion, £153 per sq m (including VAT).

MODERN VICTORIAN Reconstruction and refurbishment has changed this neglected house, with old-fashioned kitchen, bathrooms and heating into a sensational, contemporary home set behind a beautiful Victorian facade

D

eveloper Graeme Snell, of Libertas (UK), was determined that his renovation would retain all the period charm of what was originally a four-bedroom house, but now has six bedrooms with three bathrooms and four reception rooms. “The house has been completely re-modelled to create a new Victorian home keeping the traditional look but using modern techniques. The plumbing, wiring and roof are new and we’ve installed new sash windows and cleaned the original bricks and re-pointed them. “It took a lot of unusual effort. For example the existing brick pattern was one large brick and then one half a brick so for the extension at the back we continued with the same brick pattern. It took longer and cost more but it is that sort of little detail that we are proud of and people do appreciate it. The extension now flows into the existing structure. At the top of the house we also took care to copy the existing red corbel bricks exactly,” says Graeme. When Graeme bought the handsome double-fronted,

detached house it was in good structural repair but, because it had been lived in for decades by an elderly gentleman, little had been done to bring it up to date. The renovations included stripping out the internal walls back to brick and taking the ceilings off all the rooms – as well as the roof. The loft space was converted into two new bedrooms and a new bathroom. Graeme adds: “People ask if anything remains of the original house and the answer is: ‘the external walls and the wonderful front door”. We’ve installed underfloor heating and LED lighting so that it is a low energy Victorian house. “ The rear extension and converted basement take the house’s original 2,700 square footage to about 3,500. Because the house is on a corner it benefits from offstreet parking for two cars at the rear of the garden with a path that leads up the side of the garden to the back door. Meanwhile the main front entrance behind that lovely front door opens into a wide entrance hall with walnut

NEW HOMES UPDATE John Khaje’Nouri, Director Robert Holmes & Company, considers changing times for new homes

W

ith the challenging housing market of today we are finding that new build homes are proving a good investment in Wimbledon. The certainty of a good energy efficient build, together with luxurious finishing and up to the minute technology gives a purchaser the peace of mind that there will not be the extra financial burden that can come with buying an older house that needs modernising and updating. In these uncertain times there is no guarantee that the extra monies spent renovating a period property, on top of the purchase price, will definitely be reflected in the price when reselling the property in the future. Another one of the major differences we have noticed is that buying ‘off plan’ has become less popular. In this price sensitive market, with more information available to purchasers who do a lot of research before committing to a property, it is extremely important for a buyer to see the finished product. The build, detail and quality of the finishing must be of the highest standard to be attractive to today’s discerning client. At Robert Holmes & Company we are fortunate to be acting for several high-end quality developers and construction companies on some of the most luxurious developments in Wimbledon and Coombe which are

under construction or just completed. A new development of four prestigious townhouses is under construction in Wimbledon by renowned developers Lifestyle Projects, providing an unparalleled specification and due to be completed, with a showhouse, in Spring 2018. Phase 1 of Montem Square, the luxury development of seven elegant new homes in Arterberry Road by boutique developers Coronado, had a tremendous response on the launch weekend with over 80 prospective applicants viewing the properties resulting in one house now being under offer and one with serious interest. Furthermore we have three newly constructed houses in Wimbledon Village completed and for sale ranging from £5.65m to £6.95m. Further developments in Coombe Hill range from £4.395m to £5m. A new development of four prestigious townhouses is under construction in Wimbledon by renowned developers Lifestyle Projects, providing an unparalleled specification and due to be completed, with a showhouse, in Spring 2018. In conclusion it is now a pre-requisite that superior standards of detail, finish, quality and craftsmanship are incorporated into any new house being built in this affluent part of the country. A new home must display innovation, both technically and in terms of groundbreaking design and contemporary techniques, in order to satisfy the buyer looking for a new build house.

6 Deepdale is an imposing, new detached, seven-bedroom, family house set within a plot of 0.3 acres completed to exacting standards by a well-known local builder and leading central London design team in a quiet cul-de-sac within a short distance of Wimbledon Village and the Common.

MONEYTIP

S

wap rates – the rate lenders pay to borrow money – have risen in recent weeks on the back of comments from the Bank of England about the possibility of a rate rise. And new research out this week from comparison site Moneyfacts notes that this is having an impact on mortgage pricing, with the average two-year fixed rate rising to 2.63 per cent. Meanwhile, longer-term fixes of five years are around 40 to 50 basis points more expensive, so it is clear to see why a two-year fix may appear more attractive to a hard-pressed first-time buyer in particular who wants to keep monthly payments to a minimum. However, there are a couple of things to consider. The first is that the average two-year fix is 2.63 per cent; if you have a decent deposit, shop around and use an independent mortgage broker, there are several products still available closer to 2 per cent, which is incredibly cheap. Borrowers may also benefit from a shorter-term deal if they plan to do work on the property and with hopefully some house-price inflation thrown in, the loanto-value could be driven into a lower banding, so they benefit from lower rates when they remortgage in a couple of years. However, if interest rates do rise over the next two years, when you come to remortgage it could mean that mortgages are more expensive. Borrowers could consider a longer-term fix now, giving peace of mind for an extended period of time, but only in the right circumstances. If there is a chance you might move in three years, for example, fixing for five years could result in early repayment charges if you need to get out of the mortgage early, so you may wish to opt for the shorter fix instead.

MONEY MATTERS

5 million

A

study of potential first-time buyers suggests that most feel guilty about “borrowing” money for a deposit from their parents or grandparents. However, 31 per cent do expect to receive financial help with their deposit, in line with the 29 per cent of first-time buyers in England who received support with their deposit last year. But more than four in five (82 per cent) of these young adults expecting to receive help to get onto the property ladder believe it’s unfair that their generation is finding it harder to buy their first home compared to their parents’ generation. The majority of those expecting support are concerned that by accepting help it would negatively impact their parents’ future finances.

WE’VEHEARDIT ALLBEFORE Duncan Farmer considers which way the Bank of England will go with interest rates

M

ark Carney’s strong hint to John Humphrys that interest rates could rise this month (November) sent headline writers scurrying for their pens and analysts predicting what this would mean for the property market, which is already facing something of a downturn. The trouble is that not only has Mr Carney, the Governor of the Bank of England, said all this before, but from an economic point of view putting up the base rate now does not appear to make sense. Looking back to June 2014, Mr Carney said that a rate rise “could happen sooner than markets currently expect”; in July 2015 he said that he expected rates to rise over the next three years, reaching “about half as high as historical averages”, or about 2 per cent; three months later he appeared to repeat that belief. However, three months after that he changed his mind: “Since last summer, progress has been insufficient” to warrant higher interest rates, Mr Carney said, adding that “the world is weaker and UK growth has slowed”. In August last year his Monetary Policy Committee did an even bigger U-turn and rates were cut

from 0.5 per cent to 0.25 per cent and members signalled that they would be reduced further in coming months as the economic fallout from the Brexit vote to leave the EU became clearer. One thing is for certain, the fallout from the Brexit vote is anything but clearer now, but what should also concern Mr Carney and his colleagues on the committee is that the UK economy is still in the doldrums. At the end of September this year the BBC reported that the UK’s economy grew at its slowest annual pace since 2013 in the three months to June, according to revised official figures. Gross domestic product grew by 1.5 per cent from a year earlier, the Office for National Statistics said, down from an earlier estimate of 1.7 per cent. The quarterly growth rate remained unchanged at 0.3 per cent, but crucially “the figures sent the pound lower, as they appeared to cast doubt on whether the Bank of England would increase interest rates later this year”. On the very same day Mr Carney appeared on the Today programme and made his strong hint. It is anyone’s guess whether rates will rise this month, but mine is that they won’t.

M

ortgage lenders are unhappy about borrowers letting all or part of their home on Airbnb and some say that anyone who does is in breach of the terms of their mortgage. For example, Lloyds, Britain’s largest mortgage provider, allows its customers to let their main home on Airbnb without permission as long as it is for no more than 16 weeks in a year. Nationwide has gone further and said that it does not allow Airbnb lettings if it is the borrower’s only residence. Also, it will not approve buy-to-let mortgages to borrowers who plan to let a property on a short-term basis.

CHARMON THECOMMON T

he White House is a beautiful 18th Century house overlooking the Common and just minutes from Wimbledon Village, with a wonderful garden, garaging, a studio and additional parking. The property, which dates back to 1710, provides a rare opportunity to acquire a very special house on a plot of over a quarter of an acre, just a few yards from Cannizaro Park and within easy walking distance of the Village High Street. The property forms the larger part of a house and has been occupied and enjoyed by the present family for over 45 years. It requires some modernisation and offers the new owners the chance to put their own stamp on their future home. It is approached via a walled front garden and drive. The comfortable accommodation is arranged over two floors and there is plenty of potential and space for alterations and extensions, subject to planning permission. On the ground floor there are two elegant reception rooms, a country-style kitchen with Aga, which overlooks, and has direct access to, the front courtyard garden, a bedroom and shower room. Upstairs there are three large bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and two bathrooms. The mature walled gardens are a delightful feature and extend around the house on three sides incorporating fruit

trees, roses, and a magnificent wisteria. The property has a distinct country house feel about it with birdsong and greenery, yet it is within eight miles of central London. Wimbledon has many good schools and great recreational facilities including a riding school, golf, tennis and fitness clubs. Heathrow and Gatwick airports are about 17 miles and 27 miles distant, respectively. The property’s double garage and studio can be accessed from within the house, if required, although both areas would lend themselves to being reconfigured or rebuilt as part of the main accommodation, subject to planning permission.

GATEHOUSETO THEFUTURE A

stunning example of Victorian meets Modern in the form of a sympathetically modernised 19th century Gatehouse conjoined with a brilliant contemporary extension of midcentury influence, sitting in a plot of about a third of an acre with gorgeous mature oaks, a Mulberry and a lovely Magnolia. Warren Cottage is moments from Richmond Park down a private gated road in the Coombe Estate. The original building was the Gatehouse for Richmond Park and was once occupied by the Duchess of Donegal. Warren Cottage is the result of a two-year joint project with the imaginative owners and award-winning architects McGarry Moon. The property is accessed through

electric gates with ample gravelled parking. Clever use of glass and wood magnificently amplify the light and space and yet there are also traditional cosy elements. The house boasts a spectacular kitchen with contiguous dining area, 5 reception rooms, 7 bedrooms, 5 bath/ shower rooms, and a cleverly designed decorative pool that links a spacious modern annexe equipped with full kitchen and bathroom. The annexe would make an ideal studio space/separate living accommodation.

LETTINGS LOWDOWN Bryony Walters, Lettings Manager at Sheraton Law

W

e have spent the last couple of months registering endless numbers of sharers, all desperate for four-bedroom houses to rent. Such has been the demand for these properties that they have been getting snapped up on the first viewing, with some at over the asking price. It is always the same during the summer months as many young people see September as the start of something new (in line with the new school year) and they all start avidly looking in July and August. They seem to recognise the fact that they’re all competing with each other

and therefore less likely to get what they want, however, they never do learn their lesson and the cycle (and their frustration) repeats itself year after year! The market has now calmed down slightly as the winter months kick in and we are working hard to find tenants for those one and two-bedroom flats that require a little more effort to let. As usual, stock is much fought over with every agent in the area vying for new instructions however, with Sheraton Law’s strong reputation and our creative approach, we anticipate doing steady business over the next few months in what is always a relatively buoyant lettings market.

This bright and recently refurbished flat in Hemberton Road, SW9 is offered in immaculate condition throughout and is ideally located on a quiet, residential street a short walk from Clapham North station. With plenty of natural light and lovely period features, the property comprises two double bedrooms, a spacious reception room, fully equipped kitchen and a modern bathroom. £1,750pcm

There is also a WC on this floor and a cellar below. Ritherdon Road, Heaver Estate, Balham, SW17, £1,269 per week, unfurnished, Knight Frank 020 3733 1817

LAST WORD Alex Philo Sales Manager Marsh & Parsons Clapham Describe your property career to date. My career in estate agency began in Balham in 2003 as a sales negotiator, and I joined to Marsh & Parsons four years later, working in several offices in prime central London before returning to Balham to manage the office in 2010. Following a break from the London market while my children were young, I returned to Marsh & Parsons in September 2016 to manage the Clapham Old Town office. I always had a feeling I would come back as I loved working and living in south-west London and always loved the culture at M&P. What do you enjoy most about your job and what have been the highlights? The most enjoyable part of the job is the variety; no two days are ever the same. I also love the assortment of people I meet and work with every day. Finally, the incredible array of unique properties I have seen over the years, from creative and quirky studio flats to spectacular, bespoke £10m+ mansions, are certainly a highlight. Describe the biggest challenges. The biggest challenges have definitely been the changing market over the years – and not just when it has been poorly performing. The busy aggressive markets in 2007 and 2013/2014 were just as problematic and stressful; competing offers on most properties at that time meant there were always disappointed

people. Conversely, the challenges of 2008 and the current market mean it is very important to ensure I’m really guiding clients and buyers through the whole process to manage expectations. What advice would you give to anyone considering a career in estate agency? Crucially, it is important to remember that things are not always straightforward. Getting used to the ups and downs takes time but these make the job more exciting. What advice do you have for homebuyers in the current market? I think the most vital factor in the current market is to not be afraid to make an offer if you like a property. I would also advise buyers to make sure they use a local and recommended solicitor who knows the London property market well. What sets south London apart? For me the great thing about south London, specifically the Clapham area, is that it has something for everyone; great schools, green space, quality housing stock for families, and great transport links to the rest of London. For the younger generation, there are some fabulous places to catch up with friends and the nightlife is always vibrant. What do you think lies ahead for the south London market? The aforementioned

characteristics that make south London so great are the reason that people will always want to live here. We saw huge price rises in 2013/2014 and are now in a more stable market following recent uncertainties. Because of this prices will mostly likely remain consistent for the time being. Recent highs, recent lows? The spring market this year was slower than usual, due to the uncertainties felt by both buyers and sellers towards the general election and the triggering of Article 50. The enthusiastic atmosphere in the office is always a high, which has been boosted further by some new faces in the team. However, recently we have had several excellent offers agreed at or above the guide price and we also saw the completions of three flats in the same building. Finding people their perfect property and getting the vendor a good price is always satisfying. What is your top location south of the river? Rather obviously, Clapham! Why would I want to go anywhere else when I have everything on my door step? If you were not an estate agent, what career would you choose and why? I’d run a little cycle café somewhere in the countryside. Bikes and good coffee – my kind of heaven!
