In his continuing series of interviews with senior executives in the UK new homes industry, this week Marc Da Silva speaks to a busy North London estate agency.
Yasser Elkaffass, Director, Adam Hayes Estate Agents.
All our new homes developments are currently located in North London.
We are currently selling luxury flats finished to a high standard with fully fitted kitchens and modern high-spec integrated appliances, bright and airy large reception rooms that have sky lights which allow natural light to flood the rooms, entryphone systems, double glazing and gas central heating.
The prices of the new homes that we are selling at the moment start from £279,950.
New build homes are generally finished to a very high standard. The attention to detail is impressive, with the developer understanding the importance of natural light and mod cons.
Yes - a major rise in searches for three-bedroom houses up to £600,000 in good school catchment areas in recent months. The buy-to-let market is also extremely active with many investors realising that their money is better invested in bricks and mortar than collecting the small amount of interest accumulating in the bank
No. But we do ensure realistic competitive pricing. I have always believed that stamp duty incentives or free legal conveyancing were just gimmicks that were covered by inflated asking prices.
Which new homes development potentially offers the best property investment prospects? We are selling new homes in Tally Ho, North Finchley, Lambert Way, N12, which offer potential for high rental yields and good prospects for capital growth.
