Working with a Buying Agent in Oxfordshire

| Published by

If you want to move to the dreaming spires of Oxfordshire, you could benefit from using a Buying Agent. Demand for Buying Agents, particularly in areas such as Oxford is on the rise; helping buyers gain quick, easy, (and often exclusive) access to the right property.

What do Buying Agents do?

Buying agents are like estate agents but they act solely in the interests of the buyer. We work closely with buyers to understand what they’re looking for and then we work tirelessly to source properties that suit their requirements and budget.

Finding the right property can often feel like a full-time job, and if you’re not based in or near Oxfordshire, then travelling to view potential properties can be incredibly time-consuming.

We create a shortlist of suitable properties for you, and even provide virtual video tours to save you time coming to view properties that might be unsuitable.  We can even arrange for you to view your shortlist of properties over one day or weekend so that your trip to Oxfordshire is time well spent.

It’s not just the property search that we get involved with. We also advise and support buyers throughout the bidding and negotiation process, often saving our clients significant amounts of time and money.

Oxford property experts

What our local buying agent, Stephen Wolfenden doesn’t know about Oxford, probably isn’t worth knowing. Having lived and worked in the area for many years, Stephen has a network of local estate agent contacts and a detailed knowledge of the local area to advise clients and identify properties that aren’t necessarily advertised on the open market.

What kind of clients do we work with?

Our clients are a mix of domestic and international buyers who want to relocate to Oxford or land their dream county home in Oxfordshire where there are some beautiful villages. We work a lot with couples and families who want to relocate from London to Oxford to escape the big smoke and enjoy a more peaceful life in this beautiful city. Our clients are typically time poor and who value independent advice from someone who knows the local area.

Oxford is one of the UKs most expensive counties. We typically deal with purchases of around £1million+ for those wanting to be close to Oxford city centre, or at least £500,000 for those looking for property in neighbouring villages and towns.

Level playing field

Using a Buying Agent can help level the playing field when it comes to securing the right property.  Estate Agents act in the best interests of the seller and are not always sympathetic or supportive to buyers.  Our local knowledge means we can advise clients what offer to put forward and negotiate the deal on your behalf. Having that representation is essential to secure the best purchase price and it also increases your chances of your offer being accepted.

It’s worth noting that in Oxford a much higher proportion of property sales at the middle-top end of the market are only offered off market, and as a result individuals without a buying agent are at a distinct disadvantage.

If you are considering moving to Oxford or Oxfordshire, we’d love to help secure your dream property. Give Stephen a call today on 01386 20438414, or complete the form below. We’d be happy to have a no-obligation conversation with you about your requirements and what properties might suit your needs and budget.
