Who uses a Buying Agent?

| Published by

With demand for property being so high at the moment, many people are turning to a Buying Agent to help secure their perfect home. If you think that using a Buying Agent is just for those with large purse strings, think again. This highly bespoke service, where experts act solely for the buyer, is fast becoming the hassle-free way to find and secure the right property.

This article explains the type of clients we help and how they benefit from the services of a Buying Agent even in today’s competitive property market.

Moving back to the UK from abroad

Trying to find the right property is stressful enough, but when you’re in a completely different country to the one you’re moving to, the pressure and costs soon mount up. By understanding your likes and dislikes, preferences and requirements, we’ll be able to view properties on your behalf so you don’t have to make too many trips back to the UK to view a long list of properties that turn out not to be suitable.

With the help of technology, we’ve even secured homes for overseas clients without them even seeing it until the day they collect the keys!

We also offer area familiarisation visits, assistance with finance and bank accounts as well as school support to help our overseas clients settle in quickly when they relocate.

Downsizers

There are many reasons why people may want to downsize their home. Children may have flown the nest so you don’t need as much space, you may want to release some capital from your property so you can enjoy retirement, or you may simply need a property that requires less maintenance.

Many couples who want to downsize may not have moved house for a very long time, and may find the process of house hunting and negotiating rather daunting.  Using a professional Buying Agent will save a lot of time searching for properties unproductively and provide an independent opinion about the options available to you.

Holiday home buyers

Owning a holiday home is a dream for many but finding the right one can be a time-consuming task – especially if you’re searching for investment properties further afield in an area that’s unfamiliar to you.

Working with a Buying Agent can help you narrow down your requirements and guide you through important questions such as how far you are willing to travel to your holiday? How often you intend to use it yourself? And whether you want to rent it out to get income from it. All these questions will help you get clearer on your requirements and allow you to secure a purchase that you love visiting and/or provides a lucrative investment.

Investors

If you’re looking for a second property as an investment, you’ll want to ensure you choose the right location to maximise opportunities for capital growth and rental income.

A Buying Agent has the specialist knowledge and experience in key locations to help identify those properties on your behalf, saving you time, money and stress.

This is quite a simple one, but we work with anyone we feel we can help find a home for! We’ve secured properties for clients with budgets from £200,000* to several million so it’s much more about finding the right house for you than spending the most money.
