A very active market at RSK
For over 25 years our teams of local experts have been selling and letting properties in this popular area. We are currently witnessing a very active market and, between our four offices, we are arranging over 2,000 viewings every month.
Our lettings team are finding that increasing demand from tenants is resulting in higher rents. ‘It is a fast market at the moment,’ says Altin Ismaili, Lettings Manager at Robertson Smith & Kempson Ealing, ‘In recent months there has been an influx of tenants which has seen our average rent on a new tenancy increase by almost 5%. In some cases we are agreeing a tenancy before the property is marketed online as we immediately telephone suitable tenants when the property becomes available. Our advice to those looking to rent is to be prepared to act quickly, as any delay could mean it is too late to secure your ideal home.’
The sales team are also experiencing high demand with buyers taking advantage of low interest rates. ‘We have strong interest from buyers who are ‘Bored of Brexit’ and wanting to just get on with it,’ says Michael Shaw, Sales Manager at Robertson Smith & Kempson Ealing. ‘This demand is coming from first time buyers, many of whom have been renting in the local area, who are saving both in terms of low interest rates and no Stamp Duty on properties below £300,000. Meanwhile families, many of whom are relocating from more central locations, are looking to upsize here. The investment and development of the local area is also helping keep Ealing as popular as ever with Crossrail still proving an attractive prospect for many.’
