About The Acorn Group


Our Development team was instructed to manage the sale of this attractive former Victorian school building in the Autumn of 2016. Our clients have successfully secured planning permission for a scheme of sympathetic extension and conversion to create 8 residential units.

Having consulted our New Homes team and settled on a likely GDV, we agreed a bespoke marketing strategy with the client. Key to our advice was for the client to prepare a full legal pack, including searches, so as to enable a prompt exchange of contracts once the marketing had been completed. High resolution pole photography was commissioned to enhance our property particulars; which were subsequently circulated throughout our database (now numbering in excess of 10,000 applicants). Local and national advertising ensured that interest was captured from far and wide, and block viewings were coordinated so as to minimise disturbance to our client's tenants.

A host of competitive offers were received, and once we'd settled on a preferred purchaser, contracts were exchanged in just 4 days! In terms of value, we advised a guide price of £1.9m against an anticipated GDV of £4.28m. The sale successfully completed at £2.2m which equates to 51% of GDV.

Our forte is undoubtedly in achieving the very best possible value for development and investment opportunities via high profile marketing campaigns. We're not embarrassed to admit that we're proud estate agents, and enjoy doing a proper job for our clients. There are cheaper agents, but we have unrivalled knowledge of the South London boroughs, and the experience of having sold thousands of properties over the last 30 years.
