Survey results reveal east London property buyers not superstitious

Buyers of east London property are not fazed as to why a house is on the market, new research reveals. A survey by online property portal iProperty of home buyers on a nationwide scale revealed that Londoners were the least picky when it came to buying a house. More than half of UK home buyers said they would be put off buying a property if it was the result of a death, a divorce or debt. In London, however, only 5% of those questioned felt the circumstances of a property for sale would put them off making an offer. The research went on to reveal that a third of people would be deterred if somebody had died in the home, while one in ten buyers thought a repossession was a bad omen. Winkworth East London estate agents concur with the report that suggests Londoners are not very superstitious when it comes to home moving. Buyers in the east of the capital are more concerned with the facts about a property, knowing that houses and flats for sale in east London are in short supply with an eager audience. Rather than being preoccupied with the history of the building and the circumstances surrounding the sale, buying in east London is about finding the right property in the right location, and agreeing the best sale conditions in the quickest timeframe. The iProperty report also suggested that London movers had little time to research homes beyond the physical structure. Where buyers in other parts of the UK - especially women - use gut instinct and a the 'feel' of a property to influence their purchasing decisions, a competitive market and lack of alternatives has lead to a 'head overruling the heart' situation in the capital. Other factors that sway the nation's homebuyers, according to the report, include location, opportunities to extend the property, public transport links and Ofsted ratings for schools. If you are looking for houses or flats for sale in east London and would like details of the latest properties on the market, please contact Winkworth East London today. We are also happy to provide property valuations and advice for those with a home to sell in the capital.

A tall order - east London leads the way in residential towers

There is no plan, as yet, to move London's border outwards, therefore land is finite. The only way, it appears, is up. Estate agents will agree that it sometimes feels like...
