January has started with a bang and we have seen a huge increase in applicant levels from both prospective tenants and buyers. The rental market is as active as ever with high numbers of tenants urgently looking to secure properties.
Alongside this, we have also seen an increase in rental properties coming to market, giving tenants a lot more choice when deciding which property to offer on.
With this in mind, price is as important as ever along with the condition of the property.
Luckily at Portico we’re able to offer a reliable and cost-effective handyman service, so please give the office a call or click here to get an instant quote for any maintenance work that can help freshen up your buy-to-let property and help achieve you achieve the highest rental price possible.
The sales market has also seen a boost in the New Year, with many first-time buyers taking advantage of the low interest rates and looking to buy their first home. We’re seeing increased demand for one and two bedroom properties in the area.
Hammersmith seems to change daily with one new development popping up after the next. Although many were sad to see the Cinema close in the summer of 2016, the re-development works are now well under way. Once completed, the town hall extension will also have 196 residential dwellings, a new cinema as well as shops, restaurants and bars.
With an active housing market for both the sales and rental sectors and continuing new developments, Hammersmith is as popular and vibrant as ever.
