Preparing this Wetherell Mayfair update is rather like writing the end of summer term school reports – “effort” / “achievement”.
“Head’s Report” / What has been covered so far and what to do in the holidays!
For Mayfair the psalm is still Value and Volume of transactions.
The 1st six months of the year by transaction volume has been the same for the last 4 years and 50% OFF the volume of transactions for 2013 / 2014.
The good news however is that correctly priced properties are selling well – however the amount of viewings per sale is substantially up and the time taken to sell a lot longer – that is – in most cases.
Further good news; is that the £5M to £10M market has made a welcome return after three quiet years.
Also – the trophy sales over £10M have in the main been diverted from the second hand market into off-plan sales in the new developments springing up around Mayfair with pools, cinemas, leisure facilities and security.
The Future – Within the next 5 years the amount of Mayfair addresses will have increased by 10% and the residents by a potential 25% – a step change indeed.
If it was a school report Mayfair is awarded the equivalent of the “victor ludorum” for Prime Central London (Latin for “the winner of the games”, usually a trophy presented to the most successful team and was traditional at some British state and public school sports days).
MAYFAIR HOUSES ARE HOT
A surprisingly active market has been the Mayfair town house between £5M to £10M.

MAJORITY OF MAYFAIR MARKET
With 65% of Mayfair addresses being 1 & 2 bedroom flats it is not surprising that this is a major market driver of sales for the 25 – 44 year age group that makes up 42% of the Mayfair population.
