Christmas is Coming! How do I know Christmas is coming?
Well last week I received the annual planning permission notice from Westminster City Council
for the erection of The Connaught Christmas Tree –
now the central focus of our Mount Street Christmas Lights Evening
which occurs on
Thursday 30th November 2017
(SAVE THE DATE)

The 2016 Connaught Christmas tree that lit up Mount Street.
17.5 METRE TALL WESTERN RED CEDAR (NATIVE TO N.W. AMERICA)
BUT FROM SHROPSHIRE AND DESIGNED BY ANTONY GORMLEY
So if you are thinking Mayfair property you have under 15 weeks to sell / buy / let or rent your Mayfair home.

Mayfair Service
The graph below shows the sales of Mayfair property to date this year compared to the previous 10 years since the peak of 2007.
The 2017 volume of sales to date is under half the turnover of 2013 (before 2014 tax reforms) and a third of 2007.

Volume of Sales are at record low but stock available is up.
However with fewer sales and a continuing natural supply of new stock –
the result is a rise in stock levels by 50% giving buyers a greater choice.
Now that is what I call a “Mayfair Service” –

In other prime central London areas, estate agents are complaining about a lack of stock
BUT we in Mayfair can offer you a greater choice.

There are however few forced Mayfair sellers.
The amount of property withdrawn from the sales market this year is nearly equivalent to the amount of sales.

Mayfair in Minutes
This month we are focusing on changing perceptions.
