How County Homesearch helped:

The top end of the Cambridge property market works unlike normal markets, with few properties being openly advertised on-line! To secure one of the rare large family properties here, you are entirely reliant on having the right contacts, and a little bit of luck. Knowing this our client instructed us some 4 years before his family would need to occupy the house pending a return from the Far East.

 

Within a few months we learned of an extended period property in an acre of gardens on a private road close to the river. We viewed the property twice, sending nearly two hours of video footage. After some careful and delicate negotiations, and as the only party to have viewed the property, we secured it off-market below budget and then sourced a suitable tenant.

The Happy Ending:

The client was delighted with all of our hard work, and was pleased to have all the video on-hand. He was so satisfied with the quality of our research that he was happy to continue without seeing the property himself! He first saw the property in person some 4 months after completing on the purchase – a true mark of trust for our property finders!


How County Homesearch added value: 

  • Keeping communication up with this client was essential, due to the fact he wasn’t able to be there in person
  • County Homesearch used our judgement and expertise to check every suitable property before settling on the perfect one
