National show attracts many hundreds of potential buyers

Hamptons International enjoyed a successful day at the exclusive London Property Showcase event which took place on Thursday, May 19.

Hundreds of investors and buyers in search of properties attended the event, where over 17,000 properties currently for sale (with a combined value of over £6bn), including those marketed by Hamptons, were showcased.

Property experts, conveyancing and surveying specialists and mortgage advisors were on hand to offer their expertise and guidance at no charge to visitors, with many appointments lasting over 30 minutes. Visitors also varied, from couples seeking their next home and first-time buyers to small scale buy-to-let investors and large scale foreign investors looking to build UK property portfolios worth over £500m+.

The National Property Showcase also included a successful ‘taster’ auction, consisting of nine varied lots from across the UK, was attended by around 100 people and a dozen telephone bidders. Visitors were treated to an exciting auction, with some fast paced bidding; one lot jumped £38,000 in less than eight minutes. Five lots sold, with three additional lots under conditional offers.

Howard Bettridge (South East area director) at Hamptons, comments:

“As the leading agent in the South East, we are committed to helping local sellers find buyers. The National Property Showcase was a huge success and something different to help our sellers get their properties in front of serious buyers.

“As a result of the event, we’ve increased the amount of leads and interest in our sellers’ properties and eager buyers were given the opportunity to view and compare properties easily.

“We are delighted to have taken part and hope to host similar events in the future.”
