Buying Service Overview
We take the time to get to know you and build a deep understanding of exactly what you are looking for in a home or investment.
We always give an honest assessment of what your budget will afford and often refer clients to neighbourhoods or property types they hadn’t previously considered but perfectly suit their needs.
At this stage we introduce retained clients to our network of trusted solicitors, surveyors and mortgage brokers. It is important that if the right opportunity presents itself, everything is in place to take it off the market.
After agreeing on a search brief, we immediately start researching and viewing properties matching your criteria and shortlisting the very best.
We are always available for regular meetings or phonecalls to discuss progress and all reporting is available on the cloud. As the search progresses, we can also accompany you on viewings. For our overseas clients, live video tours of the best properties and surrounding areas are arranged.
Once a property has been identified, we negotiate to achieve the best terms. Our negotiation strategy is always backed up by extensive due diligence on live market conditions and the vendor’s circumstances.
Selling agents know we only represent serious, well-organised clients. This often gives us the edge in negotiations even if our offer is not the highest on the table.
Finally, we manage the sale with your solicitor, mortgage broker, surveyor and the vendor’s estate agent to progress your purchase in a timely manner.
Typically one-third of agreed UK sales collapse (almost 50% in 2019!) and many underestimate the work involved at this stage.
Post completion, we also introduce clients to our wider network of letting agents, architects, builders and interior designers and arrange for quotes and work to be carried out post-completion. This service is complimentary and we are regularly work with clients for months after completion of their purchase.
