Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything and upping sticks and relocating across the country – or the globe even – is something that certainly takes time and effort.
So how can you find out all about the new area you need to be in if you haven’t got the time to spend wandering around and soaking up the local atmosphere?
The property market is also currently being held back by a lack of supply. Vendors are scared of putting their properties on the open market when they have nowhere to go themselves, so when the perfect house does appear it is snapped up quickly.
With home buyers such as Quick Move Now able to help with a speedy sale of your current property, finding the perfect house to move to is what is currently causing the headache for families up and down the country.
The answer could be simpler than you think – a property search agent.
London-based Alexander Vine, of Divine Property Search, told Quick Move Now that services like his are vital to any individuals or families looking to relocate in today’s busy society.
A property search agent can offer honest advice to people at a time when that is precisely what they need. Moving is a stressful time for anyone and people want to know that someone they trust can take control and find them the perfect property, for the right price and in the right time frame.
Here he shares his reasons why using a property agent could be an invaluable tool in your home search.
Estate agents can sometimes give inaccurate information and a property search agent can help protect clients against this. For instance, telling a buyer that a property has a 90-year lease suggests this is a long lease, but a property search agent would be quick to tell you that this isn’t the case.
Knowledge of the market
Property search agents have a good knowledge of the area they work in, as well as excellent relationships with estate agents, who will often inform the property search agents as soon as they have an instruction and before the property goes live on any portal.
Property search agents will take control of the entire transaction leaving you free from endless calls to and from estate agents, solicitors and surveyors.
Property search agents will be able to advise you on when to increase an offer and when to stick; giving you honest advice as they work solely for your benefit.
Property search agents will be able to use their experience to help you reduce the asking price of the property where possible, as well as saving you money on surveyors and solicitors fees.
If you are looking to move but find there just isn’t the time to do the searching, fear no more, for there are people who can help to take the headache out of relocating.
