Historically those seeking out a ‘house hunter’ were cash rich and time poor and in need of delegating to a relocation expert. While this is certainly the case for high flying exec’s and corporate clients who need assistance with their move there is a whole other demographic now reaching out for professional home finding help.
When people use a relocation agent it is usually at one of two stages. Either at the beginning of their search as many who simply aspire to ‘move out of London’ have little idea as to the best area to move to, what they can get for their budget, what the schooling is like, what the commuting options are and what style of house they like.
Alternatively, people get in touch having already done a lot of the groundwork themselves only to keep missing out on their desired properties. More and more families are getting in touch as they are struggle to find and secure the right house at the right location at the right price. And if they do find the property, they are not always successful in getting their offer accepted given the rise in the sealed bid practice. Recent examples include a house search lasting months and then the prospective purchasers were pipped at the post in the sealed bids.
There is no right or wrong time to enlist the help of a property finder as their help is invaluable at all stages of the process. If you are unclear as to where to settle a house hunter will be worth their weight in gold as they can provide the following:
Meeting to understand the drivers for the move
Setting up a Relocation Day to explore all options
Identifying and shortlisting properties
Providing access to new properties before they come to market
Previewing properties to give you the right shortlist
Supplying full reports on each home with details on schools and amenities
Experience in the sealed bid process
Excellent local links with agent and solicitors putting your bid in prime position
