A dedicated property advisor for buyers
Wouldn’t it be great if there was someone to advise you on probably the biggest investment you will make in your life and no doubt one of the most stressful experiences too?
It turns out there is, they’re called buying agents: Your very own Kirsty and Phil to guide you through a complex transaction involving multiple stakeholders from lawyers and surveyors to mortgage companies, estate agents and a chain of vendors, all with conflicting interests.
From start to finish, buying agents can help you navigate the entire process, getting you safely and swiftly through to completion. Which is just as well, given typically a third of home purchases in the UK fall through each year.
All this means less stress and hassle for you and more time planning the wonderful interiors of your new home…
VIP access to pre-market properties & private sales
We’ll work hard to get you ‘first in the door’ for the best properties. Our expert local buying agents have typically built up relationships with local sellers and estate agents over many years, meaning you’ll be the first to hear about properties hitting the market, including those sold privately.
1 in 10 homes throughout the UK are sold this way, with the figures for off-market sales increasing to 25% for properties worth more than £1m in the capital and in prime rural markets.
Whether pre-market or off-market, estate agents will typically reach out first to buying agents for hot-to-trot buyers before they even think about listing a home on the property portals. In fact, they’ll often host exclusive open days, just for buying agents. Just make sure you’re on the guest list!
Advice that pays for itself
Good advice pays dividends for both your financial and your property investments, and never more so when it’s your home. While an estate agent acts contractually for the seller to achieve the highest possible price, a buying agent acts exclusively for you as the buyer. An independent advisor, on your side, to negotiate the best possible purchase terms and to help you avoid costly mistakes.
Typically a buying agent will charge a success fee of between 1 to 2% and sometimes up to 3% for super prime properties or they might charge a percentage of any savings they achieve for you.
