Cornford Grove

The Challenge

Our repeat British clients whom we had previously helped buy their son their first London property then came back to us again for assistance in helping their daughter. It was critical that the property be on a quiet residential street whilst still being close to shops and restaurants as well as being very close to the tube. It was also crucial that the property had a minimum of two roughly equal sized bedrooms and a garden. We showed them a number of options to help educate them on the market and what would work best. It became clear that we weren’t going to find what we were looking for on the open market. So thanks to our contacts and vision we ended up securing an off market, partially constructed, ground floor apartment with a large garden.

 

The Perfect Conclusion

Using our network of agents and our knowledge of the area we were able to preview an off market ground floor apartment before it was both officially launched to the market or completed. It matched our clients criteria perfectly. This gave our client an opportunity not only to see it before other buyers but also to have some input in the finishes. We were able to secure the flat £50,000 below the asking price at a highly competitive £752 per sq. foot. The going rate in the area for similar properties can be in excess of £875 per sq. foot.

 

The Unfair Advantage

Our contacts open doors. We were first in to see this apartment giving our clients first mover advantage in a highly competitive part of the market. 

Cathles Road

Our Client

British clients wanting to give their daughters their first step on the property ladder.

 

The Challenge

Our client instructed us to find her daughters their first London property. They were unsure whether to buy two separate or just one property, and whether to buy  modernised or unmodernised. We showed them a number of options to help educate them on the market and what would work best. It was critical that the property be on a quiet residential street whilst still being close to shops and restaurants as well as being very close to the tube. It was also crucial that the property had two roughly equal sized bedrooms. We ended up securing a 4 bedroom terraced house on a prime residential road in Balham. The property was in excellent condition and the vendors were motivated.

 

The Perfect Conclusion

Using our network of agents and our knowledge of the area we were able to preview a prime house before it was officially launched to the market that matched our clients criteria perfectly. This gave our client an opportunity to act quickly in a very competitive domestic market. We were able to secure the house below the asking price on the condition that no further viewings go ahead and it was removed from the market. We ended up securing the property for £724 per sq. foot whilst the going rate on this road for similar properties can be in excess of £800 per sq. foot.
