Canary Wharf selling tips

Love London: Tips for selling property in Canary Wharf

Knowing which buyers to appeal to is vital when selling your home. Here are five top tips to marketing your property in Canary Wharf.

1. Around 62% of Savills buyers in the Canary Wharf area are from overseas, with 36% from South East Asia. As Canary Wharf is the business hub of the city, accentuate the modern; think sleek lines, spotlighting and modern furniture to appeal to those looking for the Canary Wharf lifestyle.

2. Create light - smaller properties and warehouses around Canary Wharf are popular, but can be on the darker side. Create as much light as possible and keep curtains and blinds to a minimum and think of adding some well designed lighting to show off your beautiful property.

3. Make a feature of your river views. Ensure floor to ceiling windows are spotless and your blinds or curtains are pulled back.

4. Think about what your potential buyers want – Canary Wharf and Wapping attract a lot of investors, with around 34% purchasing for buy-to-let purposes. Think about adding a bed and wardrobe to smaller bedrooms to demonstrate potential further bedroom.

5. River Buses, or Thames Clippers, are a great, under utilised, way to commute and offer a 10% discount to Oyster card users. Perhaps leave a couple of timetables on the side to catch the viewer’s eye.
