Our international client had purchased a house in Kensington for family use more than 10 years ago but it was no longer required. He was keen to sell despite the fact the sales market was extremely challenging given the uncertainties over the Brexit outcome. The property had been vacant for some time and there were a long list of outstanding maintenance issues which needed to be rectified.
With our many years of experience we knew it was crucial that the house was presented in its best possible state before any viewings from potential purchasers were allowed to commence. We worked through the maintenance issues and also recommended that our client use the services of a professional staging company who then furnished the entire house with stunning furniture and art. Once this first stage had been completed we then made our network of fellow buying agents aware that the property was available off market.
We received an acceptable offer from only the second viewing at the house with a completion date set for April 2020. Unfortunately this was during the coronavirus crisis but we were able to ensure that completion happened without any delay.
Our many years of experience and unrivalled network allowed our client to achieve an off market sale in a very challenging market from just two viewings.
