Home finder services
About our services – what does a Home Finder do?
As a home finder we act as agent for the buyer. We interview clients wishing to move house to develop and agree a list of requirements for their new home. Once all the priorities have been agreed, we find and view homes, either on or off market that best suit. Then arrange to visit the short-listed properties together. Once the client decides they want to buy one, we negotiate a purchase at the best possible price. Finally, we can even arrange decorators, removal men, plumbers etc.
Until recently people viewed this buying service as the preserve of the well-off with too little time or too little expertise to buy without professional help. As a result mainly homes priced at over £1m were bought in this way. However, more buyers from the mainstream market are turning to property finders in recognition of the benefits they can gain.
When you employ a home finder you are entrusting them with far more than simply finding you a building. The outcome of your purchase will have an impact on your life for many years to come. The old adage of “location, location, location” may be a cliché, but it is true all the same. Distance affects everything and aside from the building itself, you’re moving because you want to be nearer some things e.g. coast, schools, supermarkets and further from others (crime, noise, heavy traffic). Idyllic little villages may not be quite so idyllic if they cut you off from things you want in life, or they extend the commuting time required to get to and from your workplace.
A property search consultant must know their region inside out. We know the right, as well as the wrong, places to live. To define what you’re really looking for, we must consider dozens of factors in combination . We must then map that onto your preferred area to find the right property in the right location.
Through personal interaction we ensure that every client is matched to the property which suits them best. We maintain constant contact with agents, often finding property before it even reaches the market, throughout our area.
To take the hassle out of your property hunt we take the time to ensure you only need to see homes that strictly match your search criteria through establishing your exact requirements during the initial client consultation meeting and personally viewing every property under consideration. We provide a detailed report for every property put forward detailing specific points of interest to the individual client whether it be open hearths, beamed ceilings or that Aga in the kitchen! Any requirements in regards to local amenities are also included such as the best local schools, restaurants, golf courses etc. Whatever is important to you, is important to us.
In conclusion, whether you have your heart set on a traditional oasthouse, a contemporary luxury town apartment or a secluded country mansion we guarantee to find the property of your dreams.
