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 often introduce retained clients to our network of trusted solicitors, surveyors and mortgage brokers. It is important if the right opportunity presents itself that 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. We can also accompany you on a number of viewings at your own convenience as the search progresses and we whittle down a shortlist.
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.
We also help clients work with our wider network of letting agents, architects, builders and interior designers and arrange for quotes and work to be carried out post-completion.
