The Dulwich property market definitely doesn’t seem to be paying any notice to the political and economic uncertainties we’ve become so accustomed to reading about post-Brexit.
September was a very positive month in the sales market, with a similar number of sales agreed to this time last year. The crucial point of marketing at the right price was highlighted by one sale we agreed, whereby we achieved over the asking price on a property that took just two weeks to sell.
The lettings market was equally as active, with many tenants looking for new homes in time for the festive period.
What’s going on in the area?
Plans were finally approved at the end of 2016 to regenerate the old Dulwich Hospital into a high school and health centre. The Charter School will be based here from 2019 and will house approximately 1,680 pupils. This will be a much-needed addition to the area with so many families attracted to East Dulwich.
Lordship Lane continues to solidify its establishment as a great High Street for foodies with a new Spanish tapas set to open in the coming months. The restaurant will be owned and run by a Spanish family with a passion for food and will be a welcoming addition to the high-street. A name has not yet been announced!
Firezza Takeaway has also recently opened on Lordship Lane. Firezza are well established in South-West London and are bringing with them a lot of expertise and will no double be rivalling Franco Manca for good quality pizza offerings.
In other news, tickets have now gone on sale for the Dulwich Festival 2017, an event which seems to grow in size and popularity year on year! This also means that the festival organisers are taking entries for the Artists Open House, a feature event within the festival which gives artists the opportunity to showcase their work in their own homes.
We certainly have plenty to look forward to in East Dulwich in the coming months.
