WHAT DO BUYING AGENTS DO?
Buying agents differ from estate agents in that we act for the buyer alone. Our key objective is to find and secure a property that closely matches our clients’ preferences.
We also aim to acquire property at the possible price, whereas estate agents work in the best interests of the seller, namely, to get as much money as possible from the sale of his or her property.
I DON’T HAVE THE TIME OR RESOURCES TO LOOK FOR PROPERTY MYSELF, CAN YOU HELP ME?
Yes, if you’re property requirements fall under our remit – Prime Central London and the country – we can help you find your ideal property. We start by getting to know you and your current and future property needs. We’ll then identify and shortlist suitable properties, whether it be a family home or an investment property.
GREAT, WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING A BUYING AGENT?
We provide our clients with many important advantages. We don’t compete with estate agents instead, we are valued partners. There is no restriction on the agents, vendors and other contacts we work with. This gives you access to a vast range of properties and because we are in constant contact with them your search is driven by the latest market intelligence.
We will proactively search the market using our networks of contacts to give you access to all properties that suit your requirements including those that are only available ‘off market’. In such a competitive market, professional advice is key to a quick and successful sale or purchase.
The search is only the start of the TBS service as we carry out extensive due diligence on the property providing impartial advice on price and any other issues that might affect your enjoyment of it. These are then summarised in our property report.
Our teams are made up of experts in their region who know how to make their clients preferred purchasers and negotiate the most favorable terms on their behalf. Not always does the highest price win and we are creative when it comes to negotiating on your behalf. Once terms are agreed we guide the purchase through to exchange of contracts dealing with any issues that might arise. We pride ourselves in being problem solvers but often these solutions will involve renegotiation of terms and we are not afraid to tell you when we believe they are deal breakers.
Following exchange of contracts we provide clients with a completion and handover service. This includes inspecting the property on the morning of completion to ensure everything is as it should be before final monies are released.
Our completion management specialist will then deal with the transfer of staff, utilities and services and provide you with a New Owners Guide on how everything works. As well as advice on the ongoing management and the running of the property.
