Buy­ers who stay in the back­ground

Yorkshire Post - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

BLENKIN & Co in York has han­dled £8.5m worth of off­mar­ket sales and pur­chases for shy sellers and buy­ers in the last year.

“In the cur­rent eco­nomic cli­mate, we are see­ing an es­ca­la­tion in the num­ber of high net worth clients elect­ing to keep the sale of their prop­erty firmly out of the public eye,” re­ports Tim.

He is also op­ti­mistic about 2012: “Cen­tral London prices are now so high that the rip­ple out­wards is mak­ing it­self felt in the ma­jor pro­vin­cial Cathe­dral cities – York and Bath are no­table in feel­ing this gain. And we have no­ticed a flurry of over­seas in­ter­est too since the New Year; buy­ers from Europe and the Far East seem to have North York­shire in their sights”
