The London Property Market

At Tristram Design, we have seen a huge increase in property prices and sales in the last year in and around London.  Throughout 2013, the price increase in property values spurred on many of our clients to invest in refurbishments and upgrades though purchase of new furniture and soft furnishings.
Currently, while borrowing is still low and reported to remain low for a least another two years, we feel that the property market will continue to do well, which means that all services around the building and housing trade will in see similar increases in trade.
With prices so strong, we have seen a marked increase in our show-home styling for our clients to offer a very appealing property when asking top prices.    This is not so easy for our clients who are living in their own home that they are trying to sell, although not impossible.  It is still important to show your home to it’s best potential and as we all know now, reducing clutter and re-arranging furniture and may be even buying a few new soft furnishings can change your home and how it ‘views’ to prospective buyers.
Although we all know what we should/could do, it is sometimes difficult to make these changes when not knowing where to start or how to de-clutter.  Outsource the effort – it is cheap to do and takes away the guilt and hard work.
