The Rise of Property Finders for First-Time Buyers
Introducing London Homes Search (formerly Greengrass Property), a search agent specialising in first-time buyers
Finding a new home, at the best of times, is stressful, time consuming and confusing. First time buyers, in particular, need guidance to make the right decisions at the right price.
The whole process of buying a property takes a good deal of time and dedication -constantly checking property websites, speaking to and emailing countless estate agents, researching areas and transport links/schools, and taking time for viewings with an estate agent you might not especially trust (don’t forget the agent works for the seller and a buying agent works for the buyer!). And that’s all before ensuring the property isn’t rife with issues…
London Homes Search (formerly Greengrass Property) is a boutique search agency, set up to give buyers access to their very own Phil and Kirstie from TV's Location, Location, Location - at prices ordinary people can afford (take a look at our fees).
Recently there has been significant demand for property search agents and home finders for first-time buyers - we’re striving to dispel the myth that buying agents are the preserve of the elite and wealthy! We have helped many first-time buyers and shown them that they CAN benefit from invaluable help and advice, saving time, stress, and money.
We’re experts in finding homes for first-time buyers and those on a budget, or even in a tricky situation, and have the knowledge and expertise to guide inexperienced clients through, what is often referred to as, one of the most stressful experiences.
In the current market, using a buying agent immediately informs sellers that a buyer is serious. London Homes Search is adept at helping people who need to move quickly, whether for work purposes or because they have already sold their previous property. We can also take care of the whole relocation package, from researching schools and catchment areas to commuting routes.
During the Covid-19 crisis, London Homes Search continues to offer a high level of service, with the current guidelines in place. This includes:
1) Identifying properties that fit the client’s budget and criteria. Comparing areas for value and highlighting new transport links. Areas for potential capital growth and areas to avoid due to capital depreciation. 2) Researching and sending a selection of virtual videos. We find out all the important details about the property and speak to agents who are working from home - what offer will the owner accept? Who is the seller, what is their motivation? The Lease, service charges, major works. How long they have been marketing the property and any price reductions. We always target properties that are vacant with no chain for our clients, as these are the safest and least complicated option. 3. Post Lockdown we will advise on the best properties to buy (ideally vacant) - a person selling a property will not want it empty, and with the demise of travel and Airbnb short lets, tourists will not be an option.
