Kensington and Chelsea price statistics – the latest..

Posted on Posted in Property Finder in Kensington and Chelsea

Some data from one of the most trusted agents has just been released and makes interesting (and bullish) reading…I hope these increasingly confidence inspiring statistics don’t lead to a glut of optimistically priced properties as these make buyers frustrated and vendors feel confused. As previously mentioned, vendors are better off pricing fairly to create some ‘competitive tension’ to the sale rather than having a property languishing on the market with no viewings.
