Diary of an estate agent
they’ve dressed it, interest and viewings have been much stronger and we have witnessed potential buyers looking from Ireland, Russia, Holland, the US, China, Hong Kong, Australia and Kazakhstan — quite the mix. It just goes to show that a luxury property like this really needs a strong interior design scheme to demonstrate the lifestyle that buyers can expect and we are hopeful with some second viewings today.
Based in Charlotte Street, we’re near some top universities and colleges, such as UCL, LSE, London Business School and London School of Fashion, which means we have high levels of interests from parents and students looking to secure an address in the West End. The lettings team has been buzzing around all week, mostly with organised students who have started their search early for next term, instead of waiting until they return in September and choices are limited.
The market has made a good recovery with lots for the team to look forward to next week. Maybe I can persuade a few of them to join me for a quick drink locally — I’m buying.
