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.
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.
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.
