A Dutch buyer.
Our client was relocating from Hong Kong to take up a new position as CEO of a multi-national company. He had very little time to research the market and view property, and virtually no knowledge of the local market having never lived in London before. We were able to conduct viewing tours after working hours on Friday’s and at weekends, with only the very best properties cherry picked for our client to see.
The Perfect Conclusion
We successfully agreed the purchase of this stunning 2 bedroom first floor apartment on one of the best streets in South Kensington at £545,000 below the asking price, which equated to £2249 per sq. foot. The vendor accepted a below-asking price offer because our client was organised and able to exchange contracts quickly – and one that, at £2,249 per square foot, was also substantially below the £3,085-3,480 per sq. foot at which the last three first floor flats on the street sold. We managed the legal process, surveys and mortgage to ensure the deal exchanged contracts within the required timeframe.
