Harry Buchanan, Director of Sales in Pimlico & Westminster, discusses how his higher percentage to guide price sales achieved have brought significant financial benefits to his clients

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , , — JSS London @ 12:54 pm

Throughout 2017 we have achieved a far higher percentage-to-guide price for our clients in Pimlico when compared with the overall average in the Pimlico area. Since 3/4/17, property in Pimlico has sold at an average of 93.6%* of asking price; in that same period, our Jackson-Stops Pimlico team has been achieving an average of 96.2%**. When you consider that the average price of a property selling in Pimlico was is in the region of £1.3m*** (period 3/4/17 to 16/11/17), that higher percentage-to-guide figure translates to pocketing over £30,000 more on a sale at this level. We would be delighted to assist with your property sale, please do get in touch to discuss your personal requirements, or visit our experienced team on Sussex Street.

Christmas comes early to Upper Longcross

Crest Nicholson’s Upper Longcross Garden Village in Chobham Lane, Longcross got thoroughly into the festive spirit yesterday, when Santa and his reindeer paid a visit to excited children and grown-ups alike. Despite his hectic schedule at this time of year, Santa found time to greet children who visited his grotto to receive an early gift, whilst adults were treated to champagne, mince pies and the chance to tour the beautiful Upper Longcross show homes with members of our Jackson-Stops New Homes’ team. Outside, Dancer and Prancer waited patiently and enjoyed the attention from their visitors, though there were no confirming sightings of a red-nosed Rudolf…

Crest Nicholson Regeneration’s Upper Longcross is an outstanding and highly sought-after collection of new-build homes, forming Surrey’s newest Garden Village. Nestled within mature woodland, with sustainable and contemporary living at its heart, the Village enhances Surrey’s natural landscape with a refined collection of 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom houses and 1 & 2 bedroom apartments. If you would like to find out further details about this wonderful opportunity, or would like to arrange a visit, please contact our Jackson-Stops Weybridge office, on 01932 821160, or email timfirth@jackson-stops.com.

Kitchens to stir you this Sunday…

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 10:40 am

Did you know that it’s ‘stir-up Sunday’ this weekend? Take a look here to find out a bit more about the origins of the phrase. In recent times, the date has become known as the perfect day to stir up the family Christmas pudding, leaving enough time to feed it regularly before Christmas day itself.

Ahead of Sunday, we thought we’d tempt you with some beautiful kitchens in a selection of properties we’re marketing across our Jackson-Stops London branches. Do get in touch if you can picture yourself cooking up a storm in any one of these lovely spaces:

How does the latest stamp duty change affect you?

Filed under: Latest News — JSS London @ 4:29 pm

Nick Leeming, Chairman at Jackson-Stops, comments on Chancellor Philip Hammond’s Budget: “First-time buyers struggling to save enough to take their first step on the property ladder will be celebrating the break the Chancellor has given them today. In the most expensive parts of the country a typical first-time buyer home can attract a stamp duty land tax liability as high as £10,000, money that can now be entirely, or in large part, ploughed into a deposit or spent on making essential renovations in the vast majority of cases.

“However, without concerted efforts to build more homes, accompanied with a resulting uptick in housing completions, the change to stamp duty today is a sticking plaster on our broken housing market. Similarly, penalising empty home owners with a 100% council tax premium is unlikely to really be a deterrent for people who are likely to be high net worth. If they don’t need the rent, this penalty probably won’t bother them either! The Chancellor’s various strategies for increasing building must now start to yield results, and quickly, with many more completions of homes suited to a range of life stages and needs.

“I do feel the Chancellor has missed a trick by failing to reduce stamp duty levels across the board. First home owners generally want to move up the ladder, to larger homes as their circumstances change and families expand. Stamp duty levels have acted as a brake across the entire market preventing the likes of downsizers and second-steppers from making their moves. The housing market must be viewed as a whole and comprehensive stamp duty reform would have increased overall fluidity to the benefit of all buyers.”

The magic of seahorses adds to the allure of waterside properties

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — JSS London @ 10:08 am

It looks like living on, or even in, the River Thames, is becoming ever more popular with humans and sea life alike, after seahorses were spotted recently in areas of the River stretching between Greenwich and South Bank.

If you too love the idea of living waterside, or perhaps in a coastal property further out of the Capital, take a look through our Jackson-Stops’ Coast and Water page for rentals and sales in London and beyond.

Congratulations to Cleves PTA!

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — JSS London @ 1:14 pm

Huge congratulations to the Cleves School PTA in Weybridge on another fantastic fireworks display this year. We’re very proud to sponsor this wonderful local school’s fundraising events and the fireworks are the biggest event in their calendar. The PTA works incredibly hard to put on a fabulous show for thousands of people in the community to enjoy and 2017 was certainly no exception. Gates opened at 5.30pm, which gave children a chance to enjoy the various stalls set up around the school field – from candyfloss to a sweet stall, from a bouncy castle to an enormous inflatable slide, there was plenty to keep children happy, while adults could enjoy a glass of mulled wine from the bar, or grab a delicious burger before the display began. The countdown started just before 7.30pm and we were all treated to a fabulous spectacle of fireworks, set to dramatic music, that lit up the sky and kept young and old enthralled throughout.

A lot of hard work goes in to setting up this fantastic community event each year:

A Word from our Chairman, Nicholas Leeming

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 5:28 pm

Nicholas Leeming, Chairman

Nick Leeming, Chairman at Jackson-Stops, comments on today’s interest rate decision: “Today’s moderate interest rate rise is unlikely to disturb the housing market. Good things don’t usually last forever and the end of this golden period of great mortgage deals won’t be a surprise to the vast majority of prospective and current homeowners. The market remained fairly stable throughout the General Election and the EU referendum so it would be surprising to see activity levels or house prices fall as a result of such a modest change to interest rates.

“Traditionally, higher interest rates mean higher mortgage rates so we may see those already on the fence about moving house take a ‘remain and renovate’ approach instead. However, this hesitance will not be down to interest rates alone. Over the last year punitive stamp duty levels have been a real drag on the property market and will continue to be unless Philip Hammond announces stamp duty reform across all transfer values in the upcoming Budget. The combination of stamp duty, high moving costs, economic uncertainty and potential further interest rates rises, will represent a major barrier to home ownership. If the rumoured first-time buyer stamp duty holiday does come into play it will be a significant boon for this demographic.”

‘What I Learned’

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , , — JSS London @ 2:10 pm

Camilla Foulger, Associate Director of Lettings at our Mayfair branch, explains how her recent experience of purchasing a property with her fiancé was an extremely useful lesson for her professional role at work:

Having recently completed on the purchase of a property myself, I can now appreciate the saving grace of using a professional estate agent as a welcome mediator between vendor and buyer. Despite every purchaser’s/ vendor’s hope that a sale will progress in a straightforward manner, there are inevitably unexpected issues that arise; the most common being disagreement between the two parties after a mortgage valuation or a building survey.  At a time where there is a rise in the number of online estate agents, it is more important than ever to understand and appreciate the value that a professional agent can bring to the selling or letting process. Here are my top reasons why using a trusted, client-led estate agent can save you your sanity and a few pennies along the way…

  • The optimum price can be achieved for the property through an experienced agent’s expertise and negotiation skills.
  • It can remove any emotional bias between the two parties. Using a ‘middle man’ can help resolve issues and diffuse disagreements that can make the difference between a sale going through or falling through.
  • You can harness valuable knowledge about the sales process, including the legalities, which is especially useful for first time buyers or those buying in the UK for the first time.
  • You can access other associated services such as insurance, removals, solicitors, professional valuations and financial advice.
  • You can access extensive marketing tools and expertise, which can prove especially valuable when selling a unique, historic or niche property.
  • You know you are benefiting from in-depth knowledge of the local market and relevant comparable transactions.
  • You can access agency experience in resolving common disputes that arise during the sales process with an outcome agreeable to both parties.

To discuss any aspect of the selling, buying, letting or renting process please do get in touch with your local Jackson-Stops branch, our teams would be delighted to be of service.

The week the landlord moved In!

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , , , — JSS London @ 2:04 pm

 

In a recent BBC documentary, one Surrey Landlord found out just how costly poor communication between Agent and Landlord can be. The situation at his properties was far worse than he was led to believe by his agent, to the extent that the welfare of his tenants was being jeopardised. You can read more about his story here.

At Jackson-Stops we pride ourselves on our openness and professionalism; we work hard to create a culture whereby tenants feel comfortable to come to us if there is an issue, and Landlords can rely on us to ensure the property is managed to the highest of standards. Do get in touch to discuss the full range of property management services we offer and to find out how we can make your property work for you.

Introducing REACH!

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , — JSS London @ 3:58 pm

Introducing Reach

We are proud to be the first estate agent to introduce a digital tool that allows us to market properties to a wider, more motivated online audience than ever before; unlike traditional property websites and portals, it gathers accurate information from our website about the behaviours of people looking for property to buy or let in a particular area, which is used to create tailored adverts to market properties to the right people, at the right stage of their buyer, rental or investor journey; this is done in the right place, on the right device – tablet, phone, desktop – at the right time, day or night.

C
ase studies:

Style-conscious Anthony is a high-earning, 37-year old media executive who has rented in Clapham for 18 months; he browses health & fitness websites and, more recently, property websites now that he is relocating for work. Anthony will receive a Jackson- Stops’ advert for a contemporary apartment to rent in his desired location, which has an on-site gym and is just 2 miles from his office; the advert will appear on his mobile at 7pm, while he’s browsing the Men’s Health website on his commute home.

Professionals Fiona and James live in their pretty three-bedroom cottage in Putney. With a young daughter and a new baby on the way, they’ve decided to move to Weybridge for the great schools, a larger house and more green space. Fiona enjoys browsing lifestyle and interior design websites, and will receive a Jackson-Stops’ advert for a four-bedroom, new-build family home within walking distance of Weybridge’s excellent primary school and train station; the advert will appear on her iPad while she’s watching Netflix with James at 9.30pm.

Sixty-somethings Andrew and Mary retired last year and have decided to downsize from their sizeable family home in Wimbledon town to a more manageable-sized property. Mary is a regular reader of the Daily Mail Online and Andrew likes to check the Financial Times Online every afternoon. Mary will receive a Jackson-Stops’ advert for a mews house on her desktop at 10am; Andrew will see the same ad on his iPad at 3pm whilst checking his share prices.

Get in touch with your local Jackson-Stops branch today to find out more how Reach can help sell or let your property.

It hosts almost 100 events in its 10 day period and has grown from attracting 1,000 visitors in its first year to over 15,000 more recently, with 7,000 school children enjoying the festival last year.

National estate agent rebrands as Jackson-Stops

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , — JSS London @ 4:39 pm

Jackson-Stops & Staff, the UK estate agent with 45 offices nationwide, has rebranded as Jackson-Stops dropping ‘& Staff’ from its name. The decision comes after a detailed consultation period to gauge perceptions of the brand.

Feedback from a customer survey helped to inform the final decision, which will be implemented through a phased rollout across the business. This will include changes to all brand collateral, including logos, brochures, sales boards and displays.

Nick Leeming, Chairman at Jackson-Stops, comments: “Rebranding to Jackson-Stops is not a decision we have taken lightly. We have been operating under Jackson-Stops & Staff for more than a century so it was incredibly important to us that our clients, who admire our traditional values, were able to voice their opinions on the potential rebrand.

“The survey found that most of our clients didn’t know what ‘& Staff’ stood for, and with many already referring to us as Jackson-Stops, we thought now was the right time to make the change. Although our name has shortened we will continue to operate as we have always done with our high quality values and service at the forefront of everything we do.

“We have also taken the opportunity to refresh the look and feel of not only our logo but also the wider brand, which will be rolled out across all branches, marketing materials and social media.”

Each of Jackson-Stops’ 45 branches will adjust to the new brand name, with the new website launching mid-September, and all phases expected to be completed by mid-2018.

An amazing sensory experience…

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 3:35 pm

The Wimbledon-based Polka Children’s Theatre is one of the few venues in the UK which produces and directs work solely for kids. Opened in 1979, the Polka has two theatre spaces and is aimed at children aged 0 to 13.  If your baby does start challenging the actors for the audience’s attention during the performance, you can simply take them out of the auditorium where you can continue to watch the show on the monitor provided.

Showing from now until 27th August is Hatch which is aimed at children aged 2 to 5 years.  Hatch follows the extraordinary journey of an egg through different sensory worlds, each bursting with a mesmerising blend of sights and sounds. From flowing water and whistling winds, to the beautiful call of a bird and a voyage through the clouds, we discover new sounds in unlikely places.

Semi-Detached House for sale South Park Road, London, SW19

Join the egg and lend a helping hand, as it finally reaches its resting place, ready to hatch.

Located just 0.2 miles from The Polka Children’s Theatre and 0.4 miles from Haydons Road Station, Jackson-Stops & Staff is currently marketing this beautiful, fully refurbished, five bedroom house with the benefit of a garden studio/playroom, perfect for a growing family

Shepherd Market- Mayfair’s hidden village

To the south of Mayfair, tucked away between Piccadilly and Park Lane, is a charming little square and piazza known as Shepherd Market which houses an array of little independent restaurants, cafes, wine bars, art galleries, shops and old English pubs. It has a subtle entrance through an arch on Curzon Street, which is easy to miss, or otherwise, at the other end a windy street, makes its way up the Market from the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly. The Market’s stark contrast to the nearby glamour of Mount Street and Old Bond Street, as well as its village-like atmosphere, draws locals and those passing through to enjoy a bite to eat or a mooch around the boutique jewellery and clothes shops. It is also popular with local artists and houses several galleries, including 54 The Gallery, Maddox Gallery and Imitate Modern Art Gallery, all of which add to the vibrancy and visual decoration of the winding Victorian streets.

Shepherd Market

At this time of year all the restaurants have outdoor tables lining the streets, some of them facing the square, which are popular whatever the weather. In terms of the architecture and type of accommodation available to those wanting to live in this unique spot there is a variety of options to suit all tastes. Over the years Jackson-Stops & Staff have let and sold Victorian mews houses with garages, Georgian duplex apartments located above shops, purpose-built apartments in small portered buildings and converted mews apartments. For those looking for a small but lively community to live within the West End this Market is perfect. To find out more details about this special enclave in London, please do get in touch with our experienced Mayfair Sales and Lettings team on Curzon Street, who would be delighted to help you find your perfect property.
