How to maximise your chances of getting the home you really want.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that selling your home can be a stressful time (although we like to think that we can help with that). But buying a home can also fray nerves, especially if you have found the ideal property and you want to make sure it’s yours.

You will probably be familiar with the process of buying; searching for a property, getting a Home Report, viewing and submitting an offer. If not, we’d be happy to guide you through it by telephone or in person.

But in a market when there is often competition between buyers for properties, how do you maximise your chances of success? It helps to be a ‘good’ buyer and to have an expert on your side.

Being a ‘good’ buyer
When sellers are deciding whether to accept an offer – or which offer to accept, price is not the only consideration. Given a choice, sellers are likely to prefer a buyer who is ‘purchase ready’ and so able to minimise the prospects of the sale falling through or hitting obstacles.

They may also prefer a buyer who can fit in with their plans whether that means a quick sale or a longer entry date to accommodate their next move.

There are several steps you can take to make yourself a ‘good’ buyer in the eyes of a seller.
