Writes Tim Rogers from South Bank and Waterloo estate agents Frank Harris and Company:
“Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of our first successful sales transaction from the South Bank office. It was a flat in River Court and, coincidentally, the person who bought it is now selling a flat in that very same block through me. Click here for more details.
“We sold a 2 bedroom river-facing flat in this building for £362,500 and it exchanged contracts on 11/6/2001. That same flat sold last year for £750,000.”
So, if you are thinking of buying or selling property in SE1 and want expert advice from an agency who understands the South Bank and Waterloo property market, why not call Tim on 020 7620 3400 or click here.

We at Frank Harris and Company recognise that many people now choose to surf the internet via their mobile phones rather than by PCs.
With this in mind, we now have our very own mobile application (APP) so you can access all the latest particulars on the properties we have for sale or rent at the touch of a button.
Andrew Sorene from the firm’s Marchmont Street office says: “With people’s ever increasing use of mobile phones this is yet another string to our marketing, enabling our clients to reach the widest range of potential buyers and tenants. We believe we are the only agents currently using this technology across many of our areas.”

Alec Papasavva from Frank Harris and Company’s Bloomsbury office writes:
“There is a tendency for many working Londoners to get caught up in the everyday hassle and bustle of the city without taking advantage of the numerous squares in the centre of London and beyond.
“On the weekend of 11-12 June 2011, there will be an Open Garden Squares Weekend, allowing access to a number of squares usually closed to the public. This is always a popular event so it would be advisable to book in advance. However, there are a good selection which are not private and are in fact accessible throughout the year.
“If you want to find out more about the delights of Bloomsbury, we at Frank Harris and Company have extensive experience as estate agents in the area and are happy to advise on buying, renting or selling property in the WC1 area.”

Writes Andrew Sorene from Frank Harris and Company’s Marchmont Street office:
“We are thrilled by the positive response to Crabtree Place – a wonderful new gated development in the heart of Noho, one of London’s most desirable villages. Centred around Charlotte Street, Noho has an eclectic mix of long standing establishments and colourful newcomers.
“Of the flats, just the magnificent penthouse remains available for sale, occupying the entire top two floors of the building with its virtual wrap-around terrace affording views of Crabtree Gardens itself and the immediate area.
“Nearly 50% of the townhouses are now reserved, each providing unrivalled quality and design. We estate agents always boast about the homes that we are selling but this scheme IS truly something to boast about.”
The penthouse is available at £3.25m while the remaining houses are on the market priced at £2.995m.
For further information or an appointment to view the show home please call us on 020 7387 0077.

Writes Neil Dawson from Frank Harris and Company’s Southampton Row office:
“Londoners frozen out of the property market should be braced for higher rents in the year ahead as average monthly rents in the Capital pass the £1,000 mark.
“The warning from Reeds Rains and Your Move owner LSL Property Services came as London rents outstripped the rest of country to hit £978 pcm in March. This is 7.3% higher than a year ago, and almost double the 4.3% annual growth seen across England and Wales over the past year.
“There is an acute shortage of rental properties in the Capital for the two-pronged reason that existing tenants are staying put to save the huge deposits demanded by lenders and house building has been hit by the recession.
“We at Frank Harris have seen evidence of this in the West End letting market where even the smallest studio that we have had on our books over the past six months has been over £1,000 per month.
“Rents will only get higher as we go through the summer months as we are forecasting that demand will be massively outstripping supply. Excellent news for landlords and this is a trend that will be continuing for the foreseeable future.”

According to the RICS, London is the only place in the country with a continuing rise in property prices - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-13037917
Says Zoe Mercer, from Frank Harris and Company’s Stamford Street office: “This confirms what we estate agents have known for a long time, namely that London has it’s own, separate property market.
“Over the last six month we have observed that property prices in the South Bank and Waterloo have risen steadily, on average, by 5%, with pockets such as the Roupell Conservation Area seeing even greater increases.”

Writes Tina Evans from Frank Harris and Company’s Long Lane office:
“Another addition to the growing number of bars and restaurants in the City opened last week. Searcys Champagne Bar in One New Change is a fantastic place to socialise and at a recent event we had the choice of over 30 varieties of champagne by the glass.
“This shopping centre opened at the end of 2010 and gives City residents another option at the weekend rather than travelling to the West End.”

According to the property website Rightmove, house prices across the UK rose by 0.8% in March.
Writes Andrew Sorene from Frank Harris and Company: “Although this report provides evidence that detached houses are proving more robust than flats, I can honestly say that whilst we have not necessarily seen a significant rise in values, we are definitely seeing a marked rise in activity and sales been agreed.
“There have been several instances in the past couple of weeks of sales of flats being agreed to the first sets of people who viewed – a phenomenon not seen for quite some while. Clearly there are still prospective purchasers looking to get back into the market, knowing their savings are effectively being eroded away by the low interest rates and who are prepared to invest in the market in anticipation of better times ahead.”
