The property market in south west London was incredibly busy over the summer, and this looks set
to continue into the autumn and winter months. Sellers, buyers and tenants all like to be settled in
time for Christmas, starting afresh in a new home for the New Year. Savvy people will already be
planning their next steps now.
In terms of the sales market, it’s not just private buyers who are busy - investors from across the
world are looking to increase their portfolios, whether through acquiring individual properties,
entire blocks or build-to- rent schemes. If you are interested in selling your property, please get in
touch with your local Jacksons office today to arrange a free valuation.
Families have long-adored south west London for its outstanding schools, expansive green spaces
and child-friendly independent cafes and restaurants. As increasing numbers of people are choosing
to rent property, lettings demand was strong in our Balham, Earlsfield and Clapham offices in the
last weeks of summer as families looked to settle in time for the new academic year. This demand
has continued into September.
Corporate lettings enquiries have increased month on month, with international companies and
individuals keen to secure property in an exciting property market. Clapham and Balham have long
been known as the areas of choice for graduates and young professionals settling in London. Whilst
this trend shows no sign of changing, demand from international corporate professionals is almost
matching this. Corporate tenants are desirable to landlords as they are increasingly staying put for
two to five years, minimising void periods. If you are interested in letting your property, we have a
fantastic pool of tenants currently searching for property. Please get in touch with your local
Jacksons office for more information.
