Turning plans into reality
For over 20 years Fletchers has been at the heart of the local property market. The areas we cover include Chiswick, Shepherds Bush, Hammersmith and Brook Green, which are always popular with buyers and tenants alike, due to the excellent transport links, a good selection of schools, open green spaces and proximity to the river. We handle all types of property, whether a pied-à-terre or a large family house, marketing them widely. Our reputation for giving honest, accurate advice, hard work and professionalism helps us deliver consistent results, so much so that 70% of our business comes through referral and recommendation.
This year there has been a noticeable increase in the amount of buyers registering with us, especially those looking to upsize, who are seeing current market conditions as a great time to put their plans into reality. This is driven mainly by the very competitive mortgage rates that are currently available. As the weather improves we are seeing more properties coming to the market to match this demand.
The lettings market has enjoyed a fantastic start to the year with a record number of tenants securing their ideal property. We are seeing a lot of corporate tenants relocating here looking to secure long term rentals and companies we have dealt with recently include Danone, Exxon Mobil, GSK, L’Oreal and Pokemon. We presently have more tenants looking than properties available and this high demand has translated into a slight rise in rents being achieved and the pace at which properties are being rented. These high levels of activity are set to continue as we come into Spring.
As legislation surrounding rental properties continues to increase it has never been more important for Landlords to take professional advice from a reputable agent. Fletchers is a member of The Property Ombudsman Scheme (TPO) for Sales and Lettings; a member of ARLA Propertymark and is regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
