More people are turning to independent property consultants to assist them when buying, selling or negotiating property transactions of all types.
There are many benefits in engaging the services of a professional property consultant.
The first step we undertake is a full inspection of the property you wish to buy.
Having completed the inspection and recorded all the relevant details of the property, we then research the market to determine the level of value for the particular property.
By applying sound valuation principles to research, we are able to advise you of a fair market range within which the subject property should sell.
Importantly, this range will be determined on actual sales evidence and not a figure plucked out of the air by an over-zealous estate agent.
It’s critical to keep in mind that a real estate agent is engaged by the vendor of a property to sell that property for the best possible price. The agents legal and moral responsibility is to the vendor and rightly so.
Using an experienced property consultant will ensure that, should you buy a property, you will pay a fair market price and not a figure dictated by your budget.
This is especially important in cases where a purchaser is borrowing a large proportion of the funds from a lending institution.
Should the property sell for a figure in excess of the value a sworn valuer would put on the property for mortgage purposes, the purchaser may find themselves in an awkward situation by having insufficient funds to complete the purchase.
The same principles are also true at auctions, where skilled professional auctioneers, who conduct hundreds of auctions per year, quite often have the ability to entice buyers to spend more on a property than they originally wanted to.
Using a professional property consultant can take the emotional and often stressful aspects out of a significant financial transaction.
