Acquiring a home in a highly competitive market

We had originally acquired an apartment for this client in 2013. Since then, he had married and had two children, so the apartment was no longer ideal and the family needed somewhere bigger. Five of the key criteria were:

  1. Good entertaining space
  2. A garden
  3. A separate playroom for the children
  4. An office or library
  5. In very good condition

Our clients’ focus was on Parson’s Green due to the schools but also distance to their offices. The market for family houses was incredibly competitive at the time as it was a year after the pandemic lockdown, so there was a surge in the number of people not only looking for more space but outside space was at a premium too.

Most houses were selling at the guide price and several were selling for more due to sealed bids. In such situations, it is vital to remain patient but act swiftly when the right opportunity arises. And the only way to be in the right place at the right time is to regularly call all the agents in your target area while also sourcing off-market properties.

In this instance, the opportunity arose because a property that had been under offer fell through.

As we were speaking to all the agents, we were the first to hear about this and were able to secure the property for our clients before dozens of other buyers were able to see it. Consequently, our clients now have a wonderful home that is three times the size of their apartment with a southwest facing garden, 300 sq.ft. playroom and plenty of additional space to escape the children!

This shows the importance of being in the right place at the right time. Of course, some people do get lucky, but a more reliable strategy is to have total market coverage combined with persistence and patience, because you must remain selective.
