Finding a Buyer
We have many potential purchasers already registered with us we can give details to and we are ready to put a powerful marketing programme in place tailored to each property. We will arrange viewings to suit you and will accompany them unless you wish otherwise, providing feedback on what the viewer thinks.
Looking for a Property
Once you know what you have to spend and you have an idea where you want to live you can start looking for your new home. Look at the various portals, Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket as well as our own site oulsnam.net. New properties can often be seen there first.
Photographs are often taken with a wide-angle lens and rooms may not seem as large, if you have children look on the map for the location of schools, you will also want to see transport links and shopping centres.
If the property is leasehold make sure you know the unexpired term, the ground rent and if it rises and any service charge.
Viewings and Offer
Once you have shortlisted a few houses you like, arrange to view them, it is preferable to go several times to the one you choose. When you are ready you can make an offer to purchase, you can offer as much as little as you wish but if it’s a lot less than the asking price don’t be surprised if it is refused. You may have to compromise.
The agent will want to know details of how you are funding the purchase, see a copy of your mortgage Offer in Principal and value of your current house, they will want to see your ID and have details of your chosen solicitor.
Once your offer is accepted see our guide from offer to completion
