From the outset we need as much detail as possible from you about what you require. The best way for us to find this out is an initial thorough discussion to include where you want to be, what accommodation you need and the type and size of property, to include all relevant factors. This can be by telephone, but we prefer to meet you in person either in your home or workplace or here at our offices.
If you are unsure of where you wish to live we provide practical advice on suitable areas, travel times and local amenities.
We then obtain particulars and other relevant details relating to properties that might be of interest to you as well as making discreet enquiries from our many contacts across the counties. At this stage we try to confirm with the agents or vendors involved with each property all matters of particular interest or concern.
You will be posted or e-mailed details and photographs, and at this stage we ask for your feedback and views in order to ensure that we are working along the correct lines.
If a property appears to match your criteria we make further inquiries to establish that there are no other factors about which you should be aware. You will not be surprised that proximity to roads, nearby industrial activity, noise and dreadful neighbours are generally never mentioned in sales particulars and advertisements!
Having sorted ‘the wheat from the chaff’ we arrange to view all suitable properties on your behalf, and if you wish to do so we take you to view these initial properties.
Following further discussion, and our recommendations to you, a second or even third trip may be required and by then we hope that we will have found you a property you wish to buy.
We provide you with our opinion of value and following discussion we submit an offer on your behalf – this is where our experience of local prices and the purchase process is invaluable. You can simply leave the whole negotiating process up to us.
Once an offer has been accepted we keep you very closely informed as to progress and all the other matters you might need to consider before your move, all the way through to completion of the sale and your move to the new property.
