Relocating to the UK: Why you need to use property search agents

| Published by

Relocating anywhere is a stressful business! At County Homesearch, we know the drill: your decision is based on a lot of guesswork: trying to understand a new area, what the local amenities are, where the local schools are based, how far away you are from public transport and any other factors that you might be considering in your new move. When relocating to another country, however, these considerations are magnified tenfold, as you try to navigate life in an entirely new destination. 

When you’re relocating to the UK, you can rest assured that you’ll have the support you need when you engage the services of the property search agents at County Homesearch. Whether you’re moving back after an absence or a first-time mover to the UK, County Homesearch can help with all aspects of finding the perfect home for your relocation.

Property search agents are able to provide myriad benefits to clients looking to relocate to the UK. No matter the specific location, County Homesearch has a strong team of regional experts to assist in finding and securing your dream home. 



  • Taking the stress out of property viewings



Property viewings can be a stressful enterprise at the best of times. Countless wasted hours on properties that don’t suit your purposes are frustrating for anyone; let alone those arriving from another country. If you’re relocating to the UK, the last thing you need is to have your time taken up by viewing an endless string of unsuitable properties. In addition, you may be unfamiliar with the area or location and therefore be unable to assess the properties with the full scope of their context. With County Homesearch, you are able to delegate the time-consuming process of property viewings to the experts, leaving you to get on with the business of relocation! 

  • Property search agents can choose and view properties on your behalf



Property agents have a wealth of experience when it comes to selecting and viewing properties on behalf of their clients. Indeed, our property finding agents at County Homesearch often have access to properties which are not yet listed on the market, allowing them a first look at a property for sale or rent on behalf of their clients. This access means a wider pool of properties that County Homesearch can choose from, which they will do against a pre-provided list of your requirements. Your property search agent can check against your must-haves and your preferred requirements in order to ensure that you don’t have to visit any property less than perfect for you. Once they’ve viewed the property of your choice, County Homesearch can send you a full report, with photos, videos, and all the parts an estate or letting agent wouldn’t show you! Our main priority is finding you the home you love, and not to make a sale – so we’ll never settle for less than you deserve.



  • County Homesearch can provide support and information on banking, legal and mortgage services 



At County Homesearch, we have a wealth of experience in assisting our clients who are purchasing UK homes for the first time. County Homesearch can introduce you to our wide-ranging independent network of specialist mortgage, banking and legal advisers, all of whom are experienced in handling overseas clients, who may not have UK credit history. 

County Homesearch also provides assistance with opening up a UK bank account, and setting up utilities, phone and internet services to ease the transition into life in the UK.
