Wimbledon estate agents Andrew Scott Robertson - property sales and lettings experts in SW19 - have witnessed an influx of potential buyers since the start of the year. It appears 2014 is the year to move home.
Sellers in Wimbledon looking to move this year have 250 new reasons to be cheerful. That's the amazing number of new applicants looking for property who registered with Andrew Scott Robertson in the first two weeks of January 2014 alone.
Stephen Parsons, head of Residential Sales for the Wimbledon estate agents, says houses for sale in Wimbledon will generate interest as soon as they come on to the market: "This year has got off to a flying start, with 250 buyers registering with us during the first 14 days of January. This is often a result of people making New Year's resolutions to move. However, rather than ebb away, the demand for property, including flats for sale in Wimbledon, has been sustained throughout the first quarter of the year and it shows no sign of slowing down."
Taking a whole-picture approach, these figures are a great indicator of the UK and London property market's health. More importantly and on a local level, an injection of new buyers in SW19 is fantastic news for sellers.
"As Wimbledon estate agents we regularly speak to potential sellers and one of their biggest concerns is not finding a buyer for their property in a timescale that suits them. The good news is applicant numbers are soaring and the SW19 market is brisk, to say the least. Buyers are finding it much easier to secure mortgages with smaller deposits and at a more attractive rate of interest, so buyers are eager to make serious offers. Houses for sale in Wimbledon are always in demand as there is a finite pool to choose from. However, there is a growing demand for flats for sale in Wimbledon, as young professionals and first-time-buyers discover the delights of SW19," concludes Parsons.
