Be inspired by my first time buyers with a relatively modest budget; Sofia & James from Sound Generation explain why you should use a property search agent to find the right family home for you.
Why did you decide to use a property search agent to find your first family home?
Initially we approached several estate agents and gave them a detailed brief of what we were looking for. We found that the properties they suggested didn’t match our brief, or were grossly over budget. We didn’t feel like we were getting a personal service from them at all and were completely disheartened by the whole process.
What was Harriet able to do that you were unable to do as unrepresented buyers?
Harriet was able to show us properties before they were advertised online, which was a huge advantage. She also provided a detailed evaluation of each property she suggested we view, outlining all the pros and cons. High street agents were not able to provide anywhere near the level of detail that Harriet did. Finally, having a professional property finder represent us really added weight to how seriously we were viewed as buyers, by the estate agents and vendors.
Was Harriet able to negotiate the final purchase price of your chosen property?
Yes. Harriet negotiated a great price for us, which I’m certain we wouldn’t have secured as unrepresented buyers.
Harriet provided a really personal, friendly and professional service. She genuinely cared about finding the best fit possible for our family and clearly understood our needs. We were looking for our first family home so it was a very important and emotional purchase. Harriet’s expert knowledge of the market was invaluable and her can-do, and optimistic, attitude made the whole experience a really positive one.
Would you recommend No Place Like Home Property Search agents?
Without hesitation (and we already have!). The way the property market is currently run is failing a lot of people, especially first time buyers like ourselves. We feel extremely fortunate to have found Harriet when we did. Our greatest joy has been seeing our daughter enjoy a much bigger space and, for that, we will always be grateful for Harriet’s service.
