South west London property wins over buyers in an instant

South west London estate agents, including Winkworth, report that house buyers in the area are some of the most decisive they have ever seen, with many properties for sale in south west London snapped up within hours of coming on to the market. This comes off the back of recent research that showed house buyers typically spend just 33 minutes looking round a property before making an offer. Aviva, which commissioned the research among 4,000 homeowners, pointed the finger at increased competition among buyers for the large number of people making snap decisions - with 24% of those questioned only visiting a property once before deciding it was right for them. In fact, the research showed that the perceived level of competition among buyers had increased substantially. Only 46% of recent home movers thought there was little or no competition when they purchased, compared to a figure of 65% among buyers who completed 20 years ago. South west London property always goes under offer very quickly. We find the abundance of period properties in the area bewitching buyers, with just the sight of a character façade sealing the deal for many. Plus there's the glorious stretch of river frontage and the London Wetland Centre in Barnes providing stunning backdrops. If you're looking for property for sale in south west London it pays to do as much research about the local area as possible before commencing viewings. Here we share some of our property gems that might give you a head start:- Houses for sale in Barnes Barnes property always commands a queue of buyers, with the Georgian houses around St Mary's Church and the Regency villas along Castelnau attracting international attention. Victorian and Edwardian dwellings - including the famous 'lion houses' - are very popular, so earmark The Crescent, Glebe Road and Hillersdon Avenue. Character properties from the 1920s also have an avid following - so make a beeline for the Lowther estate around Ferry Road. Property for sale in Richmond Some of the finest Georgian houses for sale in Richmond can be found around Richmond Green and Richmond Hill, the latter also being home to some very spacious detached and semi-detached Victorian properties. Evelyn Gardens and Lower Mortlake Road should not be overlooked as they are home to some excellent Victorian cottages that make great 'transition' properties for those moving on from rented accommodation. Property for sale in Putney Putney property spans almost every era of housing development, with fine Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian properties found across the SW15 postcode. There are even some attractive Art Deco examples dotted around the high street. Briar Walk, Bristol Gardens and Larpent Avenue are home to some of the most spacious period properties for sale in Putney, while Bective Road and Lower Richmond Road should be noted for Victorian terraces and cottage-style properties.
