Whether searching for a property as a main residence, secondary residence or an investment, our property buying experts will work tirelessly to ensure all your requirements are met. Every property search is unique, however we follow six simple steps to guide you through the process from beginning to end.
1. NO OBLIGATION MEETING
We will arrange to meet you at a convenient time and date whether during the day, evening or weekend. This meeting is completely free of charge with no obligation and provides us with the opportunity to meet in person (or over video call in some instances) to discuss all of your requirements and explain how it all works and how we can help you.
2. PROPERTY SEARCH
You instruct us to commence the search following our no obligation meeting. We will then clearly outline and document every detail of your criteria and preferences.
Equipped with a documented and comprehensive search brief, we begin our property search, which will involve using our extensive network of contacts including local estate agents, developers and private contacts to source both on and off market properties.
We are extremely pro-active in our property search and will preview all properties that we feel match your criteria and budget.
3. ACCOMPANIED VIEWINGS
Once we have carried out our thorough property search we will shortlist the properties we feel are most suited to your requirements.
We will then report back with detailed comprehensive feedback and arrange to view these shortlisted properties with you. These viewings can include:
- Area familiarisation tours
- Providing insight into relevant areas
- Highlighting all the key factors of the location.
During the viewings our consultants will advise you on all aspects of each property and will discuss feedback with you once we have completed all the viewings. At this point if you would like to proceed, we will move onto the next step which is to negotiate the best price for you.
If you’re still not 100% we will discuss all the feedback and continue to search until we have found you a suitable property.
4. NEGOTIATING AN OFFER
We will handle the whole negotiation process for you.
Before we make an offer on your behalf we will discuss our opinion on the value of the property by gathering comparable evidence and discussing how we will handle the negotiation process for you.
The efficiency and commitment we bring to a sale means that our solid relationships with estate agents, developers etc often gives us bargaining power. It’s our job first and foremost to secure your chosen property at the correct/best price and to then ensure the property is taken off the market or in other instances to ensure it never reaches the open market.
Once we have agreed a price we will manage the entire conveyancing process from offer acceptance to completion of the transaction. We will liaise with all parties including estate agents, solicitors, surveyors and brokers to ensure the whole process runs smoothly and is completed within the quickest time frame possible.
6. COMPLETION THE FINAL STEP
On the day of completion we will arrange to:
- Collect the keys on your behalf
- We will inspect the property
- Locate and take meter readings
- Provide you with a checklist of what you need to do in order to settle in comfortably in your new home
In the case of investments we will discuss the next steps for renting the property and go through the Property Management service with you.
The Additional 7th Step -
FREE ANNUAL REVIEW (going the extra mile)
