Home Purchases: Home Search & Selection
Once we have been instructed to act for a client we commence the property search immediately. Depending on your circumstances, methods we may use to find a property for you include:
Existing contacts and knowledge of 'off-market' property both top end private sales and repossessions - which ever is relevant
Because we dedicate all our working hours to looking for property, we will contact all relevant agents on your behalf and remain in contact with them to ensure we are always at the front of the queue to see new properties to market which fit your brief. We also seek out agents who are off the beaten track but who may have just what you are looking for. In short, we leave no stone unturned in the search for your next home.
From our property search we will draw up a shortlist of properties which we think fulfil your brief and which we suggest you see. We will have previewed all of these to make sure they fit your exact requirements. So if you have briefed us to find you a home 40 minutes commute door to door from your office with direct views of open land or green space, we won't take you to see anything else!
We will provide you with examples of properties we have discounted and explain the reasons we don't think they are suitable. We will accompany you on all viewings at a time to suit you. Although we understand that a home has to 'feel' right, we will always be the objective voice of reason and will guide you to help ensure you are making a considered investment, as well as purchasing a home.
In the current climate, it is even more important than usual to pay the right price and buy the right property in the right place. We have the experience to help you do this. We will continue with our property search on your behalf until you find the perfect home and have an offer accepted. We will be in contact with you regularly, normally daily or bi-weekly if you prefer. With our help most serious buyers will find their ideal home within six weeks regardless of the nuances of the property market at the time, and some clients find their new home on their first outing with us.
Even if it takes you a while to decide what you need or you have unusual requirements, we are confident of our ability to find you a new home within 6 months - hopefully you will have moved in well within that time - it is possible to move within a month! Failure to find the right home quickly has been catastrophic for many first time buyers in recent years and has resulted in potential buyers being priced out of the market place. The risk now is that buyers purchase a property which won't appreciate as much as another similarly priced property in the same area or at worst put drive them into negative equity. At no point during the last 10 years has it been more important to buy the right property. If you haven't got the knowledge or the time, energy or inclination to do the research, then get in touch.
