Thriving in an ever-changing property market can be testing, but leading London-based property investment and sourcing agency, Property Experts, has flourished through the fluctuating 2019 market and is looking ahead to a busy and prosperous new decade, with an expansion of their current offering.
2020 marks Property Experts’ twentieth year in operation, and the last year saw them expand their position as a recognised Help to Buy developer in the London and home counties market. The company achieved 100% planning approval for its new development applications and saw a 45% increase on the number of units developed, compared to the previous year.
A concentrated effort on social media marketing enabled Property Experts to generate a record number of investment opportunities for retained clients with 40% of these coming from marketing outreach. Highlights included completing 14 units in south Croydon, a carefully considered conversion of a former pub in the borough of Bromley and securing five new multi-dwelling development sites across south London for works to commence in 2020.
Bruce Burkitt, Founder of Property Experts said, “With political and Brexit uncertainties, we approached 2019 with great caution. We deliberately targeted purchases where substantial day one equity could be realised and a further uplift in equity could be achieved by making improvements to the property. I have very high hopes for the year ahead, with bold but achievable aims for our outputs and further expanding the property sourcing arm of the business.
“We have a firm strategy in place for the year ahead and with Brexit taking shape, confidence is now returning to the market creating a stable environment for trading. We are hoping to assist more and more clients in navigating the complicated world of property whether they are looking for an investment property or looking to source their ideal home.”
Property Experts has specialised in sourcing and acquiring land, residential, commercial, investment and development properties for itself and retained clients since its inception. Going into the new decade with a swing, the company has secured substantial funds from multiple investor clients and is expanding its property sourcing department in response to increase demands.
Burkitt added, “More and more individuals are approaching us for our assistance in sourcing them their ideal next home, a buy-to-let investment or a development opportunity. Our clients recognise that by enlisting our services they will save valuable time, be able to access off-market properties and most importantly will considerably save financially from our ability to negotiate favourable terms.”
