Waterview has seen a strong start to the year with high demand from buyers and tenants up and down the river seeking a tranquil and picturesque lifestyle.
‘Despite the current lockdown, the market remains incredibly strong with buyers keen to live by the river,’ says Soren Ravaux, Sales Director at Waterview. ‘Over the recent months the river has become an increasingly popular choice as many have had time to focus on lifestyle choices. With more people working from home, we’ve seen those people moving and enjoying the benefits of river life. Our buyers vary depending on what section of the river they’re looking to live by. Some are after stylish apartments with stunning river views close to transport links while others are looking for a quieter pace of life, more space and even moorings. One piece of advice we’re currently giving to sellers is to try and see your property from a buyer’s perspective, declutter as much as you can, allow in plenty of light and make sure that river views are uninterrupted.’
‘We are currently experiencing one of the busiest winter markets as tenants return to London,’ says Oliver Simcox, Lettings Manager at Waterview. ‘Now more than ever, Landlords need a proactive agent to find high quality tenants and this is where we come in. We mainly let properties in Vauxhall to corporate professionals and city workers. We are advising tenants who want to live by the river to be organised and act fast as demand will only increase and you might miss out.’ The riverside along Vauxhall and Nine Elms has been an area of excitement for quite a few years. We’ve witnessed the arrival of some incredible developments such as the iconic Battersea Power Station site, Embassy Gardens, The Corniche, The Dumont and Merano Residences which have taken the meaning of luxury to another level. Apart from the luxurious lifestyle that these developments provide, they also have some of the best views the river has to offer.'
