Newsletter February 2016
There has been little change in the London property market over the past month. Rents are still quite soft, requiring sensible pricing from landlords, and a large part of our buying activity is from those trying to complete pre-1st April.
The excitement in February has been the addition of our latest recruit, Amy Cleaver, who joins our growing team as our Rental & Relocation specialist. Amy has already worked with a number of our clients and we are thrilled to have her on board.
Transaction of the month: £8,200 pcm rental property in Sloane Square which we chose on behalf of a client who wasn’t able to view themselves
Our clients lived in Australia and weren’t able to visit London before their permanent move. We therefore carried out a remote search for them. We ran the search in exactly the same way we would with any client, with the exception that the client didn’t physically join us in the car.
Based on the online property details, our clients favoured a few of the other properties on our shortlist. However, we gave them the reassurance that, having personally viewed each shortlisted property, this property won hands down. Our clients had the confidence to go with our recommendation and we handled all negotiations and secured the property on their behalf.
We were even able to negotiate access to a garden square of their choice, which they wouldn’t have known was an option had we not been involved. In addition, we oversaw the property being completely furnished with rental furniture so that, when our clients landed, the property was fully furnished and even the beds were made.
Our latest recruit
We’re thrilled to welcome our latest recruit, Amy Cleaver, to our growing team. Amy is specialising in advising our rental and relocation clients whether they’re moving within London, or relocating from overseas. She has specialist knowledge of the London rental market and schools.
Prior to joining Sourcing Property, Amy worked for two rental companies and, more recently, for two large relocation agencies.
