London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 30, 2009 -- An increase in demand for sales and lettings in Notting Hill has encouraged London Estate Agents Marsh & Parsons to double the size of its local branch and expand into new premises. The enlarged office will employ 25 sales and lettings staff under one roof and cater for all areas of Bayswater, as well as Notting Hill.
Marsh & Parsons Managing Director, Peter Rollings, said: "The property market in Notting Hill is starting to buzz again. Interest from our corporate clients has suddenly picked up and demand for lettings is immense with high-end lets improving rapidly. The sales side is busy too - buyers recognise the once in a lifetime opportunity they have to get value for money in one of London's most desirable areas.Â Sales volumes have doubled since January. Notting Hill house prices have come off more than 13% since their peak in June 2008. With the average price of a property in the area standing at more than Â£740,000, that's a sizeable saving. Furthermore, thanks to the weak pound, this is now an unbeatable time to buy for foreign investors."
The new branch, located on the junction of Kensington Park Road and Pembridge Road, also has impressive green credentials including a shower to encourage staff to commute to work by bike.
Peter Rollings continued, "Marsh & Parsons has been doing business in Notting Hill since it's foundation in 1856 and I'm delighted to be growing our substantial share of the local market. I believe we have acquired one of the most iconic, best-situated estate agent offices in west London! And by encouraging our staff to bike to work we're doing our bit to help save the environment and ease local congestion. Notting Hill's a great area, synonymous with style, food, and fashion. There's nowhere in London that compares to it. Westbourne Grove and the Portobello Road are at the crossroads of an eclectic mix of designer boutiques, interiors and antique shops, food and flower stalls, bars, restaurants and of course fantastic property - something for everyone!"
