Video 20/30 - How to automate getting and booking viewings (if you want to do them yourself of course)

Image
I find that one of the most annoying things about booking viewings is the constant to-ing and fro-ing with applicants about the date and time. What if you can automate that whole process? Well now you can thanks to my helpful video:

Clapham Property Market – Which Houses are Actually Selling?

Image
Beast from the East, Russia, Facebook, Brexit, Trump, House prices up, House prices down ... the Press is full of column inches on Brit’s favourite subjects of politics, scandal, weather and not forgetting (and I appreciate the irony of this!) the property market. As an agent belonging a national group of letting and estate agents, talking to my fellow property professionals from around the UK, the one thing that is immediately apparent is the UK does not have one property market. It is a hodgepodge patchwork (almost like a fly’s eye) of lots of small property markets all performing in different ways.

… And that made me think … is there just one Clapham Property Market or many?

I like to keep an eye on the property market in Clapham on a daily basis because it enables me to give the best advice and opinion on what (or not) to buy in Clapham, be that a buy-to-let property for a Clapham landlord or an owner occupier house for a home owner.

8% More Clapham Home Owners Wanting to Move Than 12 Months Ago

As I have mentioned a number times in my local property market blog, with not enough new-build properties being built in Clapham and the surrounding area to keep up with demand for homes to live in (be that tenants or homebuyers), it’s good to know more Clapham home sellers are putting their properties on to the market than a year ago.

At the start of 2007 there were 1,098 properties for sale in Clapham but by March 2008, when the credit crunch was really beginning to bite, that number had risen to 2,138 properties on the market at a time when demand was at an all-time low, thus creating an imbalance in the local property market.

Basic economics dictates that if there is too much supply of something and demand is poor (which it was in the Credit Crunch years of 2008/9) … prices will drop. In fact, house prices dropped between 15% and 20% depending on the type of Clapham property between the end of 2007 and Spring 2009.

However, over the last five years, we have seen a steady dec…
