The property market in south west London is thriving so far this year, and this looks set
to continue into 2018. Christmas is long behind us and sellers, buyers, investors, landlords and
tenants are all ready to make their next property move.

Our sales offices have been especially busy since the change in stamp duty for first time buyers,
announced at the end of last year. “First time buyers buying properties up to £500,000 now only pay
stamp duty over the £300,000 threshold, meaning there has been a definite shift in the market,”
says Chris Cady, Jacksons Sales Director. “Owners of properties worth £500,000 and under are now
putting them on the market, realising that a whole new pool of prospective buyers has opened up to
them. We’ve registered record numbers of people actively looking to buy so far this year, and this
looks set to continue into the coming months.”

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 in Clapham, Balham and Earlsfield, lettings demand has been strong. “Our lettings
offices are busy registering record numbers of tenants. We remained busy throughout December
and over the Christmas period, but the level of activity so far in 2018 is unprecedented,” says Nick
Hignell, Jacksons Lettings Director. “We expect lettings prices to increase over the year, meaning
more landlords will put their properties on the rental market. It’s going to be a busy year!”

Corporate lettings enquiries have also 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.
