Video Blog: Opportunity knocks
Wed 27 May 2009
I had an incredibly positive response to my first video blog so it was only a matter of time before I would start thinking about my next one (thanks by the way to Findaproperty , Inside Agent , Primelocation and everyone else for your very encouraging comments). I hope you enjoy the second, of what will hopefully become a regular video blog from me, and once again, I would welcome any feedback from you.
This piece focuses on the growing number of opportunities that are now available in the market. London is showing all the right signs in terms of a recovery and we are hopeful that this will continue throughout the summer. Ive been talking a lot about the amount of new buyers entering the market and this has had a direct effect on the increase in market activity.
As a result however, there is a severe lack of stock and this unfortunately, has encouraged the comeback of gazumping, inevitable where buyers substantially outweigh available property. There are so many possibilities in London at the moment and this blog also gives advice to those who are thinking about buying or selling in the current climate.
The idea of doing a blog, whether written or by video is to provide an opportunity to engage with our customers. We want to listen to what you're saying, whether positive or negative, and to show that we are genuinely interested in hearing how the market is interpreted by homeowners and buyers in London. We would like to communicate in real time with real people and without prejudice. So if you feel compelled to respond to this blog then we would love to hear from you.
