We act as a buying agent

Buying Agent

We are not only estate agents selling homes but also act as a buying agent.

We look for homes and seek to acquire them on behalf of our clients. Some clients just want help looking for a new home, some want help to evaluate a property and to negotiate the best deal.

Buying a home for many people is the single most expensive purchase we make in our lives. We do this on average every seven years. Since 1932 we have acted as a buying agent from acquiring a beach hut on the east coast, to buying a multi million county residence, to helping investors build property portfolios.

We look for properties and homes on behalf of our clients

According to Rightmove.co.uk sellers typically accepted around 5% less than their final asking price. Zoopla says that it's just 3.86% and figures published by Hometrack suggest that a average buyer pays 97% of the asking price. We often achieve substantial savings for our clients well above these figures.

Of course many people start off asking too much for their home and a third of sellers currently on the market have reduced their guide price at least once according to the website Zoopla.co.uk.

A buying agent can:

  • Source off-market properties - those available but not advertised on websites or in agents windows.
  • Advise on areas, compare and contrast different places.
  • Research a street, village or town looking at crime, natural threats such as flooding. Assess relative value.
  • Will research the motivations of the sellers and look for pressure points like death, debt or divorce.
  • Comment on yield and the potential for capital growth.

 

  • Negotiate with the seller and their agent. (Not all selling agents are slippery but some certainly are).
  • Introduce the best mortgage brokers, accountants and wealth managers along with advisors, tradesmen & lawyers.
  • Liaise with solicitors, valuers, surveyors, architects, builders and contractors.
  • Help to make your next move the smoothest and painless experience as possible.
