I'm looking for a nice house in Clapham,preferably between the commons and to be able to commute from Clapham South. I'm moving with my partner and baby from Islington. I've looked at 20 houses but either too small, too expensive, or really bad condition. The pricing also seems very variable. We don't need catchment but even within catchment, it's all very odd. My budget is £1.775m so a very good one. I want a south facing or south/west facing garden. I am prepared to do a basement conversion on top . I'm with the agents but some houses have gone before I had a chance to view, some have been in a bidding war and others no good. I thought this was a buyers market ! If anyone knows of someone looking to sell a nice Victorian terraced house, please do send me a message. Thank you!
To get more interest for your request, you're better off going to the Homes & Garden section on this forum, and starting a new thread (instead of a post in an existing thread).
FWIW, its only a buyer's market for "Grade B" properties at the moment - the ones with odd locations, odd layouts, odd sizing, needs work, etc. For "Grade A" properties - those in catchment, between the commons, good size, all structural work done, I've seen them go within a week or two of coming on the market. It is still a sellers market for these Grade A properties.
