From a business perspective market conditions continued to strengthen in 2014, with the continuation of record low interest rates resulting in our most successful year.
With demand outstripping supply, many properties were achieving the asking price and on some occasions exceeding the asking price, such was the demand. Many homes went under offer within 24 hours of coming to the market and in some cases selling before even being launched onto property portals.
In April, alongside developers JIT Farnborough, Mackenzie Smith was proud to launch Phase 1 at The Convent, a superb collection of 14 luxury apartments with original features and contemporary high specification finishes, behind the unique grandeur of a beautiful Victorian façade. All the apartments released for Phase 1 reserved within 24 hours at the opening weekend and we are looking forward to launching the next Phase in the first quarter of 2015.
