Jobs were created at a record pace in the three months to April, sending unemployment tumbling again, official figures showed yesterday.
Against this back drop it is great to be able to report that this activity is filtering through into the property market. We have seen increased take up by investors and owner occupiers alike, and are very pleased to be offering new space to meet this demand.
In July we will be jointly auctioning the Nationwide Building Society alongside London auction houses Acuitus, there are 13 years left on the lease with no breaks, offering security for investors.
We are also offering 6 income producing flats at Vogue House, St. Michaels Road, which will offer immediate income as well as asset management.
We are also offering properties to meet demand for local businesses such as 2,000 Sq. Ft with 10 car parking spaces at 82 Abington Street which is well suited to a recruitment company who we hope are benefiting from the aforementioned employment figures. We have recently been instructed on 2 new shops on Wellingborough Road, Northampton, please call for further details.
This year we have completed a major investment transaction in Central London on behalf of Henderson Investment in an extremely buoyant and competitive market. It is great to be able to report Northampton seeing some of the activity which was previously reserved for London and as the Saracens found out last weekend, London does not have the monopoly on success!
