Diary of an Estate Agent

Monday - Summery weather brings renewed interest in West End property. Over the last week we have had a huge rise in enquiries and viewings. While we’re not at the levels of the peak market, it does go to show that when the sun is out buyers get more fuelled up about their property needs.

Hudsons’ founder Jonathan Hudson was recently interviewed by Prudence Ivy at Homes and Property.

Monday The lettings market has been a little busier than usual over the last few months. Although property transactions have dropped, fears that people will leave London over Brexit seem to be unfounded.

Our lettings team enjoyed a record-breaking January with a string of great results, and there’s real momentum as February gets under way. Today I’m out with a colleague to value a two-bedroom apartment just off Oxford Street. The owners are over from Austria where they now live and the property has been passed through three generations of the same family since the early 1900s.

As we approach the end of the year we’ve seen an increase in buyers looking to close on purchases so they can move into their new properties by Christmas. With the Oxford Street lights now on, time is ticking.
