Guest blog by James Waight
Welcome to our latest Chiswick property market blog. The last three months have been eventful to say the least, we have a new Prime Minister and still no certainty on when we will be leaving the European Union. We are yet to meet any locals who are pleased with the current political situations. So if you would like to escape the chaos, don’t forget we have an International Department that can assist with your search abroad or indeed your sale.
However, most people are getting on with their lives and despite the political paralysis we have had a healthy number of transactions over the last three months. After receiving multiple bids we recently sold a house on Beverley Road achieving 98% of the asking price and exchanging contracts in under four weeks. We agreed the sale of a house on Kent Road in less than three weeks of marketing achieving 95% of the asking price.
This is testament to the desirability of Chiswick and highlights the main challenge we currently face, a shortage of houses (please help if you can). You may have seen us at the annual Chiswick House Dog Show on Sunday 22nd September, which we sponsor. Although property is our first love, dogs come in a close second place. To celebrate our love of pooches and property, we held a John D Wood stall with a ‘guess the price’ competition. The winner received a doggy hamper.
If you would like any advice on selling, buying or renting please don’t hesitate to contact us, alternatively feel free to pop into our office on Turnham Green Terrace.
