Looking back at 2017, one constant that has been proved yet again is the continued robust nature of the London property market. Despite the political and economic uncertainty of Brexit, the changes introduced to the landlord tax relief and the Bank of England’s rise in interest rates, the property market as a whole has proved to be incredibly resilient.
2017 was a great year for us as a company. Our sales turnover was up on the previous year and the team’s hard work and relentless commitment to delivering exceptional service – and achieving the best possible results for our clients – paid off with a Gold Award at the highly prestigious British Property Awards as the top estate agent in Wimbledon for customer service.
As we look ahead to 2018, we are confident that the market will continue to hold its own. Whilst there is continuing economic and political uncertainty in the run-up to Britain’s departure from the EU in 2019, the continued low rates of lending still make today’s market a good time to buy. As ever, the phrase ‘Location, Location, Location’ is true when it comes to the demand for property in Wimbledon, and that has encouraged more agents to open offices in SW19, giving potential vendors even more choice than before. However, with 11 sales and 7 lets already agreed in January we are off to a very positive start and, despite increased competition from local and online agents alike, we are even more determined to make 2018 our best year ever!
