Robert Irving Burns have been established in the West End since 1962 and in that time have established themselves as one of the leading Residential Sales Teams in the West End.

Whilst Brexit uncertainty has affected the foreign buyers’ market, this shortfall has been offset somewhat by the domestic buyers and owner occupier markets which have grown to encompass a larger proportion of sales in the last year. In addition, despite the price decreases in many key West End submarkets, this correction has not prevented more realistic vendors from achieving prices similar to the original asking price.

However, the Residential Sales industry is also seeing record numbers of abortive deals with many purchasers looking for changes once terms have been agreed. This is an area of concern to the industry however this is primarily due to the situation with Britain’s exit from the European Union with the uncertainty of not having a deal in place affecting all major purchases including homes.

In addition, the Residential Sales market has also shown signs of recovery in terms of activity when compared to 2017, albeit there has not been a significant upward adjustment in price. Here at Robert Irving Burns, our Residential Sales department has decades of experience in the West End property industry and have weathered many different changes in administration and governance, as well as a number of recessions. We are confident that faith will return in the residential property market once more vendors are realistic about the prices which they can achieve for their property, as well as once the uncertainty surrounding Brexit is resolved.

Part of our continued visibility and reputation in the market is our ambitious expansion plans which continue despite Brexit uncertainty. We have employed a number of new team members in all departments as we look to carry on the excellent level of service we provide to both new and existing clients.
