    There are few benefits from growing oldbut the ability to have hindsight is oneof them. Fortunately after a 35 yearcontinuous Estate Agency career in this area, Ihave plenty of hindsight which hopefullyqualifies me to talk with some confidenceabout the market trends specifically in thisarea. It is surprising how circumstances canrepeat themselves and although this recessionhas been particularly difficult, it was just asdifficult when I opened the business in 1989,

    during the recession. Its true to say, prices rosespectacularly then just as they did in the run-up to 2007and dropped dramatically yet once again despite hard timesand rising interest rates property still remains a goodinvestment now.

    At the lower end of the market our Under 500KDepartment has noted a huge increase in fresh property toour books and these properties are selling. The buyers AREthere. Mortgages are difficult to come by now, but even inmy early days you had to qualify for a mortgage then as youdo now and yet we still managed. So even though interestrates are set to rise and we will see the effect of the VATincrease in the coming months, I believe that first-time

    buyers will strive to get on the ladder more now than ever.The Bank of Mum & Dad maybe the best chance ofobtaining a suitable deposit and there is evidence suggestingthat as these parents downsize, deposit money becomesavailable and the cycle can continue. I have of course greatsympathy for those that are unable to obtain this support,but regrettably there is no short-cut to house purchase, justsheer determination.

    We appear to have a finely balanced market at the momentwhere most of our Vendors realise that to sell theirproperty one has to be a realist and keep expectations incheck, this is supported by the number of sales that wehave achieved last year, which is substantially higher than inthe previous years.

    As we move into the middle range of properties thatLawlors handles, the picture is different, but still remainspositive. To make the move from a semi-detached house toa substantial detached house, is now an extremely largeleap, because of the stamp duty and associated costs ofbeing a seller and a purchaser. However, a well maintainedproperty in key locations close to the best schools in thearea will always do well. It is obvious that most families willprioritise and move to a better home over other

    expenditure and although it can be expensive it isundoubtedly about long-term gain and quality of lifeover material acquisitions elsewhere.

    Many people who sold in the Recession and moved intorented property feel that prices have now levelled out,or are now at a generally affordable level and withinnegotiable reach. Remember, one buyer with nothing tosell can stimulate three or four connected transactions,so it doesnt take long for the effect to be felt. Wetherefore predict that there maybe a shortage later inthe year of properties within the 600-1Million pricebracket as the current stock is snapped-up and itremains to be seen whether the flow of new propertiesonto the market will keep pace with demand.

    At the top end of the market our Elite Homes Divisionreported a late rush of exchanges on multi-millionpound properties at the tail end of last year. GerardHoulihan and Heidi Foster of the Elite Homes Teamhave been extremely busy with fresh valuations sincethe start of the New Year, most of which will beexclusive to us and will reflect common sense valueswhen they do come onto the market. We have a stronglist of qualified buyers and although costs may rise thisyear, trophy houses will still fair well and be in demand.With a record number of properties sold even in lastyears turbulent times, at over 3 Million pounds, there isa lot of confidence in our area and this can only improveas the Worlds attention is focused on the Olympic Parkon our doorstep. I further predict that this will have a

    ripple effect of increasing values and demand in our area which can only be a good thing.

    Overall we see a modest rise in prices through all price brackets although there will be tighter criteria formortgage qualification and the continued popularity of the rental sector as more and more people acquireproperty to let and create property portfolios. In the absence of other better non-property relatedinvestment opportunities we anticipate that the loveaffair with residential property will continue.

    See our expert report on page 65 for a differentperspective on the global property scene.

    Finally, but most importantly remember that achievingthe best value is not necessarily about buying cheap andselling high, by using our team of Negotiators to achievea fine balance between buyer and seller we can ensurethat your move is hassle free and expertly handled.

  • Place your bets on property?

    Toasting the New Year may have seemed like amixed blessing for most property owners. Rock-bottom interest rates have eased debt burdens -including mortgages - but have hardly helped with savingrates and the outlook for most investable assets -equities, bonds, even commodities and other esotericinvestments - are so foggy, the discerning investor couldbe forgiven for being paralysed by indecision for want ofmaking the wrong move.

    While the property outlook - residential, commercialand property funds - is equally mixed, for those that canaccess credit, those historically low interest rates are thesunshine that helps the discerning investor make hayeven during the troubled times.

    Direct property investment (i.e. buying a house or buy-to-let property rather than a property fund or trust) istypically what the finance community call "a leveragedinvestment"; that is, an investment that uses a mixture ofdebt (a mortgage) and capital (the down payment) toinvest with the aim of capital return and/or incomeaccrual from the investment.

    Of course, leveraged investments with poor capitalfoundations are a risky proposition and these are thecases that tend to default (i.e. home repossessions) orresult in negative equity (where the home is valued atless than the mortgage owed). In fact, the south-east'saverage property value is one of the highest nationally($227.2bn).

    However, some newspaper headlines would have youbelieve that these scenarios are rampant across the UK

    when in fact the number of repossessions last year wasreadjusted by the Council of Mortgage Lenders from53,000 to a total of 39,000. That is from a conservativebase of around 15m homeowners in England.

    In fact, one would be forgiven for thinking that when wetalk about the 'property market' it is as a one whole; it isnot. The south-east (including London) is responsible formore than one third of all housing values, andhomeowners in those areas have benefited from the risein the market since 2000. The gross value of residentialproperty increased by more than 2,500bn by the endof the boom in 2007.

    Peter Williams, housing market specialist and chairman ofAcadametrics, says: "For the present, the outlook for thehousing market remains negative. However, withcontinued demographic pressures (at least one, first timebuyers waiting to enter the market) and much reducedhousing supply, there is real possibility of a strongrecovery in prices."

    Seeing the property market as one block is trulymisleading. Location, location, location remains a truismfor property value and the south-east is abundant in thetypes of buyers Mr Williams describes as leading theproperty market rally. Add into the mix a large swatheof investors looking to generate income in these sluggishtimes and buy-to-let properties also appear attractive onboth a value and demand basis.

  • three sales brokers for every year that I was there.

    As with all great businessmen Lakhaney was not prepared tosimply rest on his laurels and enjoy his exceptional success,fairly soon he had identied an opportunity and was drawnto the call of a new challenge.

    Being based in Notting Hill, and working in the propertyindustry I was surrounded by an abundance of beautifullydesigned houses, ats and apartments, and became inspiredby their interior design features and the extra dimensionthey added to a home. My colleagues began suggesting thatwith my architectural background I should do similar workon a private commission basis for private clients. It seemedlike a good opportunity and thats where Boscolo was born.

    With his background in architecture and experience andknowledge of the property market Lakhaney was naturallyideally suited to advising clients on how to achieve the bestfrom their property by implementing exceptional interiordesign. He explains;
