Securing their Dream Property
We will make the difference between out clients securing their dream property and losing out for another year.
A recently published statistic claims that roughly 150,000 families this year will make the decision to trade the congested streets of London for a cleaner quality of life in the countryside. Find out how Premier Property Search can make finding a property in the country easier.
The areas for consideration vary widely, but the attractions of heading west are wholly apparent to those of us who already live here and act as a magnet to a large proportion of the movers. Whether to be closer to their roots, following friends, or chancing an unexplored region, the reasons for the exodus are always many and varied.
Whatever the reason, it is clear that there is not enough property to go around and it is increasingly hard to find. For a family exchanging a £700,000 to £1million house in London for a period property with a few acres in Hampshire or Sussex, for instance, the search can often be a frustrating and fruitless one, if carried out without professional help.
150,000 lost souls
Initially, there is the chicken and egg decision of whether to sell or find first – both have their pitfalls and timing can be critical. Then the area of search has to be considered – whether to limit the search to an easy run for a particular school or to give oneself a better chance of finding the right house by widening the area for consideration. Other factors also have to be well thought-out, such as distance to communications, places of work and centres of culture. Therefore, for those 150,000 people, the decision to go is not an easy one and it can be the first step in a series of crossroads, T-Junctions and dead ends….which is where Buying Agents, like Premier Property Search, prove their value.
Over the past twenty years, those seeking property in London, the Home Counties and further west have been increasingly utilising the services offered by Property Search Agents. Last year the property buying industry acquired hundreds of millions of pounds worth of property on behalf of private clients and the figures are set to grow still further.
Advantage of quiet knowledge
Nigel Sellers of Premier Property Search says, “Estate Agents increasingly expect those applicants seeking property in excess of £1 million to be represented by a Buying Agent. Even those looking for less expensive property often benefit from the inside track and market knowledge that the professional property seeker provides.” Such advantages include getting to the rare and often off-market properties first, sifting the wheat from the chaff so, saving valuable time and expense. They also know about properties that are quietly available, while strategising and negotiating to secure the right property at the best price. “In a market where demand for the best houses (in whatever price range) greatly outstrips supply, such purchasing power can mean the difference between buying the house of one’s dreams or being disappointed for yet another frustrating year,” comments Sellers.
“Our mantra at Premier Property Search is that we offer professional knowledge and advice with a personal service. Experience shows that, invariably, we will make the difference between our clients securing their dream property and their losing out for another year. But this is just the headline benefit. In truth, there is a great deal more that we provide for those we represent – such as detailed local knowledge, the inside track on the property market, and saved time, money and effort.”
As the exodus from the capital continues, the true value of the buying agent will become increasingly apparent, and more incomers to the area will feel the need for help in finding and acquiring the homes of their dreams.
