Q&A ASKTHEEXPERT

Is the vendor being present at a viewing the kiss of death?

Q

Felicity Blair, Director, Roy Brooks

A

Five cheers for absentee sellers!

“We’re moving because we need a bigger garden.” That isn’t what the buyer told me. It’s what the vendor said during a viewing when his potential buyers asked why they’d leave such a lovely family home (hefty house, 40ft garden). The ensuing awkward silence was beautifully punctuated by a furious glare from his wife. Not being used to showing homes is the very first reason that owners are best left out of the viewing process, especially in the early days. The second is equally obvious: buyers can’t speak freely with emotionally attached vendors in earshot. In fact many don’t even view too thoroughly. Who wants to make polite conversation you have 15-minutes to scrutinise a semi between work and nursery pick-up? Make it easy for potential buyers, put them first and get out of their way. They’re under offer in Dalston, putting down 400k and mortgaging the rest, they say. Are they? Who’s going to check? I mean really, properly check and get evidence? It’s all very well showing people your home all the time, but what if the Dalstons aren’t actually in a position to offer and a super couple from Hackney actually are. How will you know? Call this the third, very golden reason to let your agent do their job. Who’s going to follow the viewing up? That’s four. And as crazy as you may think it is, some people actually buy homes they wouldn’t have considered viewing unless persuaded to. It’s a fact, the fifth one here. Every now and then a sale happens because an agent realises, through doing their job well, that the Hackneys are in fact looking for more bedrooms and the 40ft garden will do just nicely, thank you very much.

ith summer holidays coming to an end, Prince George will be trying on his uniform and sorting out his satchel ready for his first school – just like children all over the country. This is the first time a royal child has attended a school south of the river and, according to local agents, this has certainly raised the cachet of the surrounding area. 38 Westbridge Road is only five minutes from St Thomas’s in Battersea, the private day school chosen for George. It’s an immaculate family home with five bedrooms and a large west-facing garden (ideal for play-dates?).

CHARITYTEAMS WITHKEYBRIDGE T hrive, a national charity that uses gardening to help thousands of disabled people, has teamed up with landmark London development Keybridge, in Vauxhall, to offer a new training programme for the local community. Twice a month, two groups of Thrive participants from the local area, who are studying or hoping to study for their Level 1 City and Guilds Qualification in Practical Horticulture, will visit Keybridge to work on the planting surrounding the Sales and Marketing Suite. Keybridge is a landmark development by award-winning developers Mount Anvil and FABRICA by A2Dominion, which will transform the area with new homes, open spaces, shops and offices. Ellen Swygart from Thrive, Battersea said: “Taking on a contract such as this is fantastic experience for our client gardeners who, whilst fully supported by Thrive, will take the role seriously and be able to add this to their CV. It demonstrates commitment and professionalism, will be a confidence booster and a chance to work outside of the Thrive garden environment.” Located in a vibrant new central

London neighbourhood, within walking distance from a Zone 1 transport hub and the River Thames, the site was previously occupied by one of the world’s largest telephone exchanges and was regularly described as one of ‘London’s ugliest buildings’. Prices at Keybridge start from £580,000 for a studio apartment with completions for Keybridge House scheduled in Q4 2017 and for Keybridge Lofts in Q4 2019.

WORD ON THE STREET RUNNINGWATER

O

n the October 11 and 12, a team of four residential agents from Knight Frank will set off, on foot, from the source of The Thames in Gloucestershire. Around 30 hours later they will arrive at The Thames Barrier, some 184 miles away! The continuous running relay will see them run seven marathons, across seven counties through day and night. They will be supported by colleagues on foot, mountain bike and even mini bus. Their mission: To raise £18,400 (£100/ mile) for four worthy charities as part of Knight Frank’s bi-annual Day of Giving – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ runtheriver184 One of the four runners, Giles Barrett, Partner at the Riverside team, has just completed a key training stage with a 43.8 mile ‘ultra marathon’ on August 12. He says: ‘We started the Riverside team in 2005. At this point it would be a credible claim to say we know as much about the Thames as any agent. After October 12th we don’t think it would be too audacious to suggest we will know it better than anyone having run around 368,000 steps of it!’

FAMILYFUNDAY Bellevue Road, Wandsworth Common, is gearing up for another successful Summer Fair on Saturday 16th September, showcasing its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafés and restaurants. In its sixth consecutive year, Bellevue Road Summer Fair, has something for everyone, including live performances from local musicians, children’s activities, a falconry display, fantastic range of food and drink, and over 40 visiting traders selling a wide variety of goods. The dog show held on Wandsworth Common between 4-5pm, is always popular and this year is sponsored by PawSquad and organised by The Dogfather. Registration takes place on the Common from 11am, with proceeds going to a local charity. Sam Sproston, Chairman of Bellevue Road Business Association and Partner at Knight Frank, said: “We are thrilled to be the main sponsor of the Bellevue Road Summer Fair for the third year running and have been enthused by the

high level of support shown by the local residents and businesses. Everyone is welcome so bring friends and family along for a fun day out“ Facebook @BellevueRoadFair Twitter @bellevueroadsw

Are virtual viewings the future for estate agents? THOMAS CRABTREE MARSH & PARSONS It’s hard to deny that technology is playing an increasingly important role in the property market. In particular, virtual reality has the potential to be extremely useful for buyers who may live abroad or are not able to physically view a property. These technologies provide viewers with a close to real-life experience, however it is near impossible to get the same sense of the proportions when you are not physically in the room, meaning a virtual viewing is no substitute for actually seeing it first-hand. Furthermore, that feeling you get when you find the property that is ‘the one’ is impossible to replicate. I highly doubt people will start buying houses based solely on a virtual reality viewing.

DARREN BAKER LAURISTONS Given that our client is the seller, then it could be argued that the virtual viewing might dissuade a potential buyer from actually viewing a house they would otherwise have fallen in love with. Furthermore; since Virtual Reality headsets are for serious gamers and not the majority of the home-buying public, anyone wishing to take the virtual reality tour would have to visit the agent’s office to make use of their equipment. A potential buyer would no doubt wish to actually spend that time visiting what could be their new home, rather than standing in the middle of the agent’s office wearing a computer screen in front of their eyes. However, where the gap may exist for such an innovation could be in a market heavily weighted towards overseas buyers unable to make the journey to view in person, particularly those considering an off-plan purchase.

TEAM TALK Enthusiastic rugby players, and now sponsors, Rampton Baseley are backing the Ironsides

W

hen it comes to rugby, you will have to go a long way to find a more committed fan than Patrick Rampton. The former London Scottish player is so passionate that virtually every business analogy that comes out of his mouth relates to the rugby field. This irritating habit reached new heights during the recent Lions’ tour. I really do think that Paddy honestly believes that he could have done a better job than Warren Gatland and let’s face it Gatland did a pretty decent job. I, on the other hand, have nowhere near as broader knowledge on the subject but I have been a lifelong member of Hertford RFC and am still nursing a shoulder injury from a “social game” I played in a couple of years ago. The point is that we both love rugby and when the opportunity came up to be the lead sponsor of the Battersea Ironsides, our thriving local rugby club, we didn’t hesitate. It is well reported that the Ironsides boasts the largest playing membership in Europe (possibly the world). The club has also made headlines in the sports pages for being the breeding ground for one of Englands brightest news stars – Kyle Sinkler. Of course one area where Gatland and Rampton agreed 100% was the selection of Sinkler, the formidable tight head prop who had a tremendous tour. This is remarkable given that he only had his first England cap a matter of months before they left for NZ. It should be no surprise that Battersea Ironsides was Sinkler’s introduction to rugby. The club is at the very heart of our community, a hub of sporting excellence. It is known for being fun and inclusive, an excellent club socially. To be associated, is an honour. Come on Ironsides!

ONTHE WATERFRONT Ten years after he joined Knight Frank’s Riverside office, Matthew Smith looks back on a transformed scene

B

ack in 2007 when he joined Knight Frank as a negotiator the riverside office had only been opened for 18 months. At that stage, he says, people who wanted a riverside penthouse had little choice. Now with dozens of new developments along the Thames there is a good choice. He says: “The last 10 years has seen interesting times along the river. It has changed so much it is unrecognisable. What used to be a secondary area has become prime housing stock with facilities no one could have dreamt of before the lifestyle developments along the Thames. “ Back when Matthew joined Knight Frank the first phase of Imperial Wharf in Fulham was still selling. Now the final phase has just been completed. “Because apartments were snapped up other developers bought nearby sites and prices went up and up. What had been old industrial sites and almost no man’s lands were transformed into desirable areas.” Matthew’s own life has also changed. He joined Knight Frank as a negotiator after working with other agents in St John’s Wood and Hampstead on the lettings side. Thanks to his skill as a salesman and extensive knowledge of the property market he was made a partner six years ago and has been heading up the Riverside office for seven years. He says: “I was a very good negotiator and like running a team. I am happy to have sold some of the best properties along the river – and some of them more than once. If people have a good experience they come back to us. I like using my knowledge, so that if I know

someone who wants to move onto a bigger apartment and I know someone who also wants to move, but whose property is off the market, I enjoy putting the deal together.” Matthew was responsible for bringing the Riverside area into Knight Frank’s prime central London index, when the numbers of properties over £2 million soared. He has seen waves of foreign buyers snapping up riverside apartments – Russians, Middle Easterners, Chinese and Malaysians. Now he says the big change is that more Londoners are buying. “There was a time when a house in a square or a stucco-fronted house in London was the ultimate purchase, but now local buyers see the attractions of lateral living and an easy lifestyle. The modern housing stock in London has completely changed.” One of the massive changes is the facilities now on offer in riverside developments. Concierge, parking, a gym and pool are standard. But some developments now also include treatment rooms, saunas, wine stores and bars. “There are a lot of young people in the developments, wealthy students and young professionals who don’t have time to cook. The latest trend is for residents’ lounges often with a cocktail bar and waiter, or conference facilities. This means that the development becomes their social life as well as a home. I know couples who have met in their residents’ lounge and gone onto marry.”

oon over Volcano is an original artwork by Don Blanding— the early 20th century poet who illustrated his own work with elaborate pen-and-ink drawings. He spent two years at the Art Institute of Chicago with the idea of becoming a commercial artist and became enchanted by Hawaii after seeing a play set there. He left for the islands with a just five dollars in his pocket. It was in Honolulu that he landed his first job as a commercial artist, working as a cartoonist and spot illustrator for a local newspaper – painting portraits on the side. He went on to serve in the army and then travelled in Europe studying art in Paris and London before returning to Hawaii and taking up poetry. This design originates from about 1930, so the influence of art deco is obvious. Moon over Volcano is available as a wall mural from wallsauce.com You select a size and finish. From £30 per square metre for standard paper.

>>HARVEST HOME Ranging from soft chalky purples to rich damson, plum is the colour to watch for AW17

>>SHINE ON Hate to mention it…but darker evenings are around the corner. A bit of glitz (look at metallic leather) will light up those autumn evenings

>>SOFT TOUCH Foam-filled cushions are lumpy not luxury! Change those inners for feather fillers that keep things soft, yet shapely

>>BLACK OUT South London is getting moody. Too many interiors are moving to the dark side. Daringly decorative or just depressing?

>>BEDDIE BUYS It’s hard enough to get kids to sleep at night. Aren’t those outlandish spaceship/car/fort beds just a bit too stimulating?

>>TOO MANY COOKS Gadgets, gadgets everywhere and no space for real cooking. Keep food prep simple and keep workshops clear

s we approach the final third of 2017, we enter a period normally associated with an uplift in demand for property to buy following the Summer holiday season. With the end of the year in sight, many homebuyers see these late Summer and Autumn months as their last real opportunity to secure a property and ensure that they have completed in time to enjoy their first Christmas in their new home. Many New Homes developers, aware of this surge in demand, schedule in their releases of new developments to the market over the course of September and often offer additional incentives to ensure their development stands out from the crowd. For buyers, this means not only an increase in the choice they have available to them, but also an increase in levels of competition with other buyers also seeking out their dream home. To place themselves in the best possible position to secure the home they are seeking, buyers need to be financially prepared to be able to offer as soon as they have found the right property and also prepared to get

out to view quickly as new properties are released. With the snap general election followed quickly by the Summer holidays, both having an effect on the number of buyers in the market in the Spring and early Summer who held off to let the dust settle, the lift in demand for homes in the later part of this year is likely to be even more profound than usual. Irrespective of whatever the political landscape is at home and abroad, the fundamentals for a strong market remain. Renting is still the most expensive option for those living in London, new stocks of rental property are not emerging, interest rates remain low, employment is high and with Help To Buy available on many new homes developments, it has never been easier to secure a new build property with a deposit as low as 5 per cent . For more information on our new homes developments, Help To Buy, funding a new-build purchase or on the differences between buying a ‘secondhand’ versus a new build property, please visit our new website at Lauristons. com for our buyers’ guides or call 020 8879 9099 to speak with one of the New Homes team.

The house is about two miles from the A3 trunk road and 14 miles from the M25 orbital motorway. There are fast and frequent trains from Wimbledon to Waterloo (15 minutes). The property underwent extensive renovations and refurbishment five years ago to include water-based underfloor heating to all tiled areas, re-wiring, upgraded heating and water pressure system and most of the glazing was replaced in the house. CAT6 cabling has been put in place through the house and there are integrated speakers in the kitchen/living/dining area, lounge master bedroom and bathroom.

It is approached via attractive communal grounds and a private driveway and the house enjoys bright and spacious accommodation over two floors.

MONEY TIP

W

hile there may be growing demands on household incomes, the good news is that lender appetite remains strong with very little upward pressure on interest rates. This may, however, explain why remortgage numbers have failed to increase, with borrowers often only compelled to take action after the second or even third interest rate rise. As so many stories circulate regarding mortgage prisoners – borrowers who can’t remortgage perhaps because they are older, require an interest-only mortgage or are self-employed – there may be those who feel, wrongly, that they won’t be able to get another deal. With HSBC the latest lender to make many reductions across its range of fixed-rate mortgages later this week, including a five-year fix pegged at just 1.59 per cent, fixes are as low as they have ever been. This is great news for borrowers so it is worth seeking independent advice to find out whether you qualify for a cheaper deal.

MONEY MATTERS SLOWINGDOWN

Gross mortgage lending reached £22.1 billion in June, 9 per cent higher than May’s lending total of £20.3 billion, and 3 per cent higher than the £21.5 billion lent in June last year, according to UK Finance, which used to be the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A period of belt-tightening now seems to be underway as inflation begins to erode consumer spending power, and consumer confidence weakens. “Given that the economy and housing market are closely linked, this has contributed to the activity plateau since the start of the year,” says Mohammad Jamei, of UK Finance. “Looking ahead, housing market activity is likely to reflect economic conditions – a deterioration would likely dampen first-time buyer numbers and homeowners remortgaging – the factors that have supported lending recently.”

ISARISEONTHECARDS? The economy is not in great shape so should we prepare for interest rates to go up, asks Duncan Farmer

T

interest rates would have to rise. He also cites the weakness of sterling and rising inflation as causes for concern and says that last summer’s cut in the base rate to 0.25 per cent had added “fuel to the fire of the build-up of consumer debt”. “If consumer debt continues to build up the economy will become even more unbalanced and we will ultimately discover that growth has become unsustainable,” he went on. “The MPC has put off raising interest rates for too long already, and delaying further is likely to make our economic problems worse.” However, his contention that rising house prices were making it harder for first-time buyers to own their own home appears to be a red herring as many estate agents are reporting a slowdown and most forecasters predict slow growth, if any. Mr Carney’s concerns about Europe may ultimately be reversed. Discussions about the European Medicine’s Agency’s move out of London, which must happen when we leave the EU, has led many of its 900 highly qualified and relatively wellpaid employees to say that they would rather quit their jobs than the quit the capital. If that is repeated in the financial institutions also considering a move, the future of the London economy – and its property market – look good for some time to come.

he Bank of England has once more voted – by 6-2 – to keep interest rates at 0.25 per cent and it is now more than ten years since the base rate last went up. However, there are two warnings that the economy is no longer in the shape that it was: Mark Carney the Bank’s governor, says that Brexit is beginning to hit businesses, and Andrew Sentence, a former member of the Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee, says that rates must go up because we’ve all borrowed too much. “It is evident in our discussions across the country with businesses,” said Mr Carney, “that uncertainties about the eventual relationship [with Europe] are weighing on the decisions of some businesses.” He added that business investment had been weaker than would have been expected and that “the speed limit of the economy has slowed”. He also forecast that growth for the year would be two points lower, at 1.7 per cent. The knock-on effect would be that wages would also grow more slowly, at 3 per cent next year, down from a forecast of 3.5 per cent. That means that we will all have less to spend, but it has not stopped consumers going to the shops, says Mr Sentence, who said that the “strong growth of borrowing and the build-up of consumer debt” meant that

A beautiful home needs a beautiful mortgage Whether you are buying your first home, next home or need to remortgage, look no further than SPF Private Clients for specialist mortgage advice. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The precise amount will depend upon your circumstances and loan amount. We estimate that the fee will be 0.67% of the amount borrowed.

t seems that, regardless of what the Bank of England has done, mortgage rates are starting to rise. Figures show that the average two-year fixed-rate loan has become slightly more expensive. The average rate for buyers with a deposit of just 10 per cent is now 2.5 per cent, compared with 2.43 percent in April. For those with 40 per cent to put down the rate has climbed from 1.24 per cent to 1.38 per cent, which means that anyone with a £500,000 loan would be paying an extra £18 and £33, respectively, every month.

his West Dulwich house fitted with a hospital-grade air purification system is an ideal buy for asthmatics or simply the health conscious. The beautifully presented, end of terrace, three-bedroom house was fully refurbished in late 2013 and is in a sought after location, and could be easily converted to include a fourth bedroom. The high quality specification of this property includes Kahrs engineered Jatoba hardwood flooring throughout, a feature full height door and underfloor heating to bathrooms. The house’s ventilation system has been upgraded to allow all fresh air entering the house to pass through an IQAir Perfect 16 air purifier. There is also a high end music system comprising a KEF 5.1 surround sound speaker system integrated into the reception room ceiling, and preparation for Sonos speakers elsewhere in the house. On the ground floor, the entrance hall gives on to a concealed guest cloakroom and then on to the reception/dining room which features sliding French doors that open on to the 43 ft south-facing garden. The sleek and stylish open plan kitchen

is well specified and gives access to the utility room, which is also accessible from the front garden. The first floor provides two bedrooms and a second reception room, which can be used for relaxing or as a children’s play area. Previously configured as a further bedroom, this area could easily be reconverted. There is also a fabulous family bathroom. The master bedroom suite occupies the whole of the second floor and includes a spacious bedroom with en suite shower room. Outside there is a useful garden shed in the back garden, and also a separate garage located close by in the development, which is situated just off Alleyn Park. The shops and amenities of West Dulwich and Dulwich Village are within easy reach, as are the green spaces of Crystal Palace Park, Belair Park and Dulwich Park. Dulwich and Sydenham Hill Golf Club is also nearby. Prestigious local schools are on the doorstep, including Dulwich Prep London on Alleyn Park and Dulwich College.

anting to enjoy pure air and get away from pollutants caused by traffic fumes and general congestion is now a big motivating factor in house buyers. Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, has pledged to clean up London’s air by introducing clean bus corridors on the most polluted roads and by setting a target of buying only electric or hydrogen buses from 2020. He is also opposed to a third runway at Heathrow and hopes to introduce cleaner walking routes to schools, as well as starting a major treeplanting programme across London. According to Laura Peet, negotiator at Knight Frank, Dulwich: “Poor air quality in central London seems to be a considerable factor for several new buyers who have registered with us recently. They want to relocate to a leafier, greener and more traffic-free area and have explained that they had previously been considering moving out of London to the country, whether for personal health concerns or worries about their children’s health. “The area close to Dulwich woods seems to appeal as a compromise, being set back from the road and surrounded by trees, which contribute to better air quality. Another house we are marketing has gone even further in the quest for clean air, installing an air purifier which creates hospital grade air throughout the property, free of allergens and airborne viruses and moulds.”

LAST WORD Mark Hustwit of Marsh & Parsons Brixton has the last say Describe your property career to date. Since starting as a trainee 19 years ago, I’ve valued and sold every type of property from country estates to city centre flats. A colleague and I opened a still-successful agency in Harrogate in 2009, however, I felt I needed a new challenge and left for London in 2014. Having worked in both Harrogate and London, I understand how markets – and client expectations – differ. What do you enjoy most about your job and what have been the highlights? I love working with enthusiastic people – estate agents have personality! Seeing clients happy is always a highlight; my career is built on relationships and recommendations, so providing a good service is imperative. Describe the biggest challenges. Political uncertainty – the property market can be sensitive. The recessions have been difficult, 2008 being the worst. Even so, nobody who bought at that time regrets it today! The biggest day-to-day challenge is telling a client that a buyer has withdrawn their offer.

What advice would you give to someone considering a career in estate agency? Do it! It’s a great career which offers opportunities to build friendships with colleagues and clients, and the earning potential is good too. It’s hard work at times, but very rewarding. What advice do you have for homebuyers in the current market? The market is resilient – if you’re selling, explore options to maximise your return. Property presentation is essential, and a little money well-spent can a real difference. When buying, maximise your budget so when the market rises, your equity will grow more favourably. What sets south London apart? It’s trendy – there’s always something on. There’s great nightlife and excellent amenities and transport links. There are also affordable options for first-time buyers and their families. What do you think lies ahead for the south London market? Continued growth and first-time buyer demand.

Recent highs, recent lows? Moving to the new, busy Brixton office has been great. Brexit caused some uncertainty, but this is a domestic market – people move, and the market will always adjust. What is your top location south of the river? Brixton for its great vibe, endless restaurants, bars and shops, and 24-hour tube line! If you were not an estate agent, what career would you choose and why? I feel destined to be in sales, and the investment or financial services sectors have always appealed to me.

SETTOIMPRESS This Grade II listed, five-bedroom house, set in 12 acres of impressive grounds with fantastic views, provides the perfect country home

D

ating back to the 16th century, Lollesworth Farm was enlarged in 1677 and, unlike many homes of this date, the rooms enjoy excellent ceiling heights more akin to the Georgian era. The grounds include a swimming pool, changing room, outdoor entertaining and barbecue area, a formal walled garden and outbuildings including a substantial home/office above one of the garages with views on all four sides over the grounds. Additionally there is a tractor barn, a further garage and a log store. While all mains services are provided there is also a private underground water reservoir to supply the grounds and livestock through the summer months. The house is approached via one of three driveways and the entrance hall leads into a drawing room and

sitting room, both with woodburning stoves. The dining room opens to the kitchen/breakfast room – equipped with an Aga. There is also a utility room and conservatory overlooking the garden. The master bedroom with an en suite bathroom is on the first floor along with three more bedrooms, a bathroom and cloakroom. Another bedroom and bathroom are on the second floor. West Horsley village has shops, pubs and local schools, as does adjoining East Horsley. Schooling in the area is superb with a good selection of state and private options.

gardens. A separate dining room and study all have period features. The kitchen is bespoke and fully fitted with integrated appliances, a separate breakfast room and utility room.
