July Update

The Secret is out! “MAYFAIR REDISCOVERS ITS VILLAGE PAST”, reported a June issue of Britain’s Sunday Telegraph. In a full-page article on the area the paper reported that “some of London’s most stunning buildings are shrugging off their office conversions and becoming homes again”.
Wetherell’s “Mayfair Aficionados” will not be surprised to hear this news. We have been telling you all for many years that Mayfair is London’s No.1 area, but it is always pleasant to hear it from others and especially by the esteemed Telegraph.

“A combination of market forces and government leasehold reform is now reversing half a century of damage. Like some sleeping beauty, Mayfair, which escaped the worst excesses of the 1960s and 1980s office-building boom, can once again claim its place as one of London’s most desirable areas.”
Sunday Telegraph 27/6/99

The article reported what we have been saying – “compared with many other parts of London, Mayfair now represents good value for money”. Wetherell recently analysed a cross section of houses in Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Kensington & Chelsea indicating prices up to 25% higher.

“The problem with Mayfair is that we have a limited turnover of property,” says Peter Wetherell. “There is only a small selection of available property for sale and if you are new to the area it is very difficult to assess price on a comparison basis. You need knowledge of past sales to give you the confidence of value”. This has now been made somewhat easier with buyers seeing perceived value through high prices quoted in other central London areas.

Rising Market

With a shortage of property, Mayfair values are set to rise even further as the prices achieved catch up with the surrounding areas. Each sale sets a new record and now is the time for vendors to consider placing their own properties on the market to see if they can create the new record price.

Current property available ranges from one bedroom flats to nine bedroom mansions but with only 121 properties available (98 flats and 23 houses) the buyer has to deal with the 30 different firms of estate agents marketing them!

It pays to deal with the specialists and once again we quote from the Telegraph “Wetherell, Mayfair’s main estate agents” are the company to speak to for your Mayfair sale, letting or purchase.

Web Sells Well

We believe that our policy of sound, professional advice based on local knowledge and marketing with an international outlook produces results for our clients.

To exemplify this, Wetherell have recently sold a traditional Mayfair apartment in Mount Street. The owners, having asked a number of agents their opinion of the property, decided to instruct Wetherell as their sole agents.

Meanwhile, over 8,500 miles away in Shanghai, an ex-pat contacted us after browsing our website. He was coming to London to find an apartment and was one of the first people to view the apartment when he was in London a few days later. Having agreed terms for the purchase, the expat returned to the Far East, with Wetherell overseeing the sale through at the asking price.
