Press Release: The first green shoot appears

Tue 17 Feb 2009

There are definitely some signs that the property market is starting to stir. So says Peter Rollings, managing director of Marsh & Parsons. He contends that the market is very close to or has even reached the bottom in London.

No one rings a bell when property has reached its nadir. But for the following reasons we believe the very first green shoot of a recovery has appeared.

Over 1,000 new buyers registered in January most with deposits of 20% plus

Nine best and final offer situations this year including

A flat in Holland Park which attracted 35 prospective buyers, three asking price offers and an agreed bid in excess of the asking price

Most areas of London have fallen 25-30% and are back to 2004 levels

Double of the agreed sales so far in 2009 compared to corresponding period in 2008

Greatly increased overseas buyer interest from around the world sales agreed this year with Russians, Italians, Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Irish etc

Peter Rollings adds: Its worth noting that since 1945 property prices have appreciated by 174% in any 10 year period. I dont know for certain that we have reached the bottom however what I do know is that in two years London property prices will be higher than they are now and in five years they will be substantially higher.
