Estate agents work solely for the vendor and it is their aim to achieve the highest possible price for a property. No Place Like Home works solely for the buyer and uses its in-depth knowledge of the current market and expert negotiation skills in order to give clients confidence in the purchase price that they ultimately pay.
It is my job, as an independent property search specialist, to filter all property details and to search for and shortlist properties that only match your specific criteria.
Work and family commitments often mean that you don’t have time to do the required research to find the right property at the right price. When carrying out a search, my initial viewings are of numerous properties that I then narrow down to around eight or ten to show you, depending on the current market.
I am regularly able to use my negotiating skills to acquire a property at the right price and certainly not above the market value. This cannot always be an easy process for unrepresented buyers.
I can very often view properties that are not yet on the open market, putting my clients ahead of other buyers.
On the contrary, I have built up excellent relationships with several estate agents in London and surrounding counties. Estate agents know that I come to them with serious buyers; they understand that my clients are fully committed to a house purchase in their area.
I very much hope that this is not the case. However, in the event that a suitable property is not found, I will extend the contract for a further agreed period. Please ask to see my Terms of Business for more specific details.
When I am asked to find a family home, I consider every aspect of family life in the property search.
Excellent local and independent schools are a hugely important part of this. I can advise you on all schools in your chosen area, often from first-hand experience, as well as directing you to Ofsted reports. I can also direct you to local online forums in order to put you in touch with other local families.
No problem. I am able to offer Skype viewings; I will guide you through a virtual viewing of the property at a mutually agreed time.
