Home search service and how it works!
Our home search service is here to help you find your new home in Chichester, Portsmouth or any of the surrounding areas. Whether you are looking to rent or buy, you can leave the legwork to us. No more trawling the internet, and no wasted weekends visiting places that seem to have potential but turn out to be nothing like you expected.
Here’s how the process works:
You tell us what you need
We talk through your particular requirements. What style and size of house are you after? What’s your budget? Where will you be working? Are you looking for a family-friendly suburb, or is a cosmopolitan area closer to the city centre more your style? What sort of leisure facilities and social activities do you need access to and what about where to walk the dog?!
We look for your ideal home
Once we know more about you and your family, we suggest areas we think will suit your needs, and get started on our search. You get a shortlist of suitable properties, with full details of each. We’ll discuss them with you, and answer any questions you may have about the house or the area.
Your shortlisted properties
We’ll accompany you to view the shortlisted properties. We’ll fill you in on the detail of each house and the area, so that you’re in the best possible position to make a decision.
We negotiate on your behalf
Using our knowledge of the local market, we negotiate on your behalf to get you the best deal. With us on the case, you can be confident you won’t pay over the odds for your new home. And if you’re buying a property, there’s a good chance the reduction we get for you will be greater than the cost of our home search services!
We handle the hassle
If you’re using us to help you buy, you won’t need to worry about liaising with solicitors, sorting out surveyors, or chasing up estate agents. That’s our job! We’ll handle every stage of the process, right up to making sure the electricity is connected so you can put the kettle on before you tackle the unpacking.
