We're expanding. Don't worry though we're not moving, just taking on extra space in our existing HQ. Our landmark offices are in the prominent Salisbury House on Queens Road in Weybridge. The imposing period building has been our home since we started in 2014. It provides the perfect hybrid between being an accessible High Street location for our clients without being a traditional estate agency shop front, from which arguably the industry is moving on from. Salisbury House is owned by Portchester Estates who we share it with. This provides a natural synergy between developer and agent. We have a large boardroom and meeting facilites.
With the bad news that petrol prices are at a 3 year high, comes the positive effect that oil companies are doing well and as a result the local rental market is seeing a much needed boost. We reported at the end of last year that oil companies were relocating large tranches of employees to the UK for January 2018. We didn’t know at the time how long this would last but they continue to come thick and fast and this looks set to continue well into the summer. The demand is mainly for family houses in North Surrey and Berkshire from £2500pcm to £10,000pcm. These are great tenancies which tend to last 2-5 years on average. We are doing strong business in this market but there is already beginning to be a shortage of the right homes.
George Osbornes war on landlords has had a powerful impact on the lettings market in this area in the last year. No longer do investors want to build letting portfolios and bring much needed stock to the lettings market. However, as our local sales market slows down and particularly the upper end of luxury homes, we are seeing increasing numbers of developers and private individuals who are unable to sell (at the price they want to!). Many will have lenders breathing down their necks and considerable sums to repay in interest each month. With no obvious light at the end of this sales tunnel some are turning to the idea of letting.
