Absolutely Chelsea: The Inside Scoop
Mon 01 Dec 2014
Alex Lyle, South West Area Sales Director, Marsh & Parsons, South West.
The increase in properties available and reduction of new buyers entering the market makes this an excellent opportunity for those serious about purchasing a property. For the first time in a long while, Fulham offers far greater choices for those looking, with some properties offering exceptional value. There are fantastic mortgage deals available, and with interest rates unlikely to go up any time soon, our advice to those who are serious is buy now - we expect to see the competition return in the New Year, so make the most of the next few weeks before Christmas...
Peter Shaw, Fulham Group Director at Featherstone Leigh, Fulham.
Buyers and sellers might sigh with relief as we see some normality return to a market that has been somewhat uncertain recently. The 'froth' may have dissipated since the summer, but we are seeing solid activity on property that delivers quality at a reasonable price. We are looking forward to 2015 with confidence, as we expect a more traditional market of lower but more sustainable growth and one where sellers will benefit more from the local knowledge, energy and experience of the independent agent, who is less target-driven and more focused on achieving the best resulsts for their clients. In addition, of course, England are hosting the Rugby World Cup, which will put South West London back into the spotlight and the home team will surely raise the winner's trophy!
