A lively market
‘The sales team have seen a great start to the year and have welcomed a positive change in the attitude of our buyers and sellers who are all now making firm plans to move,' says Paul Mould, Sales Director at Fletchers, Chiswick. ‘There's definitely a lack of large family houses available, which means competition for this type of property is increasingly high. Our advice to sellers is to get on the market as soon as possible as Spring is just around the corner, more properties will be coming available and competition for value is only going to grow. We are advising buyers to make sure they are prepared, both legally and financially, so they are able to move forward quickly to avoid missing out.’
'Our lettings teams are hard at work finding the right property for the right applicant,' says Erica Whitehead, Lettings Director at Fletchers, Chiswick. 'We are consistently receiving a high number of enquiries from tenants searching for properties across the board. There's a noticeable shortage of one and two bedroom apartments and these are always the first to be snapped up. We let a great deal of large family homes to Corporate tenants who have been relocated into the area. In fact, we are letting properties to tenants within days of them becoming available, due to high demand.’
