With the January blues behind us and London and Homes Counties Buyers as keen as ever to secure a home in Dorset, Abbot and Slater are pleased to announce the date of their first London Day at their Mayfair Office for 2017.
Christine Slater says “Monday the 13th February, with love in the air, will find us in the heart of Mayfair to bring our portfolio of properties to the attention of London and Home Counties Buyers. Such opportunities are an important part of our calendar and enable us to personally showcase our portfolio of properties to London and Home Counties buyers keen to make the move to this wonderful part of the world.”
Going through our completed sales for 2016, as you will see from the pie chart below, other than local buyers by which we mean those residing in Dorset and Somerset at the time of purchase, then the largest number of our buyers continues to come from London and the Home Counties.
This group of buyers has always been extremely important to the strength of the our market and although they are not seen in the numbers experienced before the crash in 2007/2008, our area is still much sought after by those wishing to retire or have a change of lifestyle.
The current problems London and Home Counties residents are currently experiencing with the rail networks is a point in question. The daily grind of trying to catch a train into the capital is wearing some down and making their desire to escape to a better quality of life stronger. Improved electronic communications mean that there are more and more opportunities for people to work from home for a number of days per week and with South West Trains offering an excellent rail service to London Waterloo, which can be accessed locally from Sherborne, Gillingham and Salisbury, this makes working in the capital for a few days a week a reality. Road links are good and with the go ahead for the proposed underpass for the A303 past Stonehenge, which will eventually relieve the congestion there during the summer months, our area is a more and more desirable option.
Our ability therefore to showcase your property to London and Home Counties buyers via our Mayfair Office in in the heart of London is an essential marketing tool. It is staffed by full time professionals who have a wealth of knowledge both at home and abroad and our partnership with them means we are able to offer an extensive range of advertising and promotional opportunities that would not normally be available to an Independent Dorset Agent.
To take advantage of our next London Day on Monday the 13th February 2017 and have your property showcased in the heart of Mayfair call Christine or Tracey at Abbot and Slater on 01258 830860.
