Winter 2018 market news

With shorter days and colder weather, you may think that winter would be a slow season for an Estate Agency focused solely on selling and letting properties by the river. Whilst it’s true to say that summer certainly gets more people outdoors and enjoying all the Thames has to offer, that doesn’t change the fact that people who are interested in owning or renting a riverside property are emotionally invested in securing one, whatever the time of year.

A home overlooking (or indeed on!) the iconic Thames is a dream for many, and is therefore protected from external factors, be it the actual weather or the political climate. With all eyes on the London property market over the past few months, Waterview are proud to announce that 2017 has been their best year yet. The steadfastness of the target market is much to thank for this – river buyers are not fair-weather; they know what they want and they will get it, regardless of adjustments in the wider property market.

Though it may seem far off, Waterview’s agents are already thinking about the spring. A crucial time for Waterview, an influx of properties come to the market around March. It’s recommended by our experts that sellers get in there early and put their home on the market at the start of the new year. As Waterview’s Director Soren Ravaux says: 'There will be a lot of choice properties to contend with come March, so savvy sellers will be looking to get their property on the market before then.'

Staffed by waterside specialists with years of experience between them, Waterview offer a superb selection of homes on the Thames, ranging from houseboats and islands to flats and grand mansions. All of their listed properties have one thing in common: direct waterside views, with many having access to riverside grounds and moorings. Waterview has been successfully selling and letting fabulous riverside homes along the Thames since 1993, and no other company offers a more experienced and dedicated service for residential sales or lettings along the river.

With over 12,000 boats passing their premises at Thames Ditton Marina every year, Waterview are in a unique position to advertise your home to riverside buyers and tenants. Waterview have a database of dedicated house hunters looking specifically for riverside homes - and nothing else!
