We are a nation that is cash-rich but time poor. You may not like it, but there you are, it’s true. Many of us just don’t have enough time for one of the most important tasks of all – finding the right property to buy. And believe-you-me the job is hugely time-consuming. Ok, so you’ve made the decision you want to up-stumps and move to the beautiful Cotswold countryside or perhaps to the stunning Slad Valley. So where do you start? You’ve sold your own house and plan to go into rented accommodation once your sale goes through (a massive and somewhat dauting task in itself), you spend snatched minutes scanning Right Move, Prime Location and the like between school runs or on the train into work but are getting frustrated that the properties that pop up for sale have already had viewings and received offers and you have missed the boat. And frankly the market is such that few good houses are coming to the market; supply just is not meeting demand. A property search agent could prove a god-send at a time like this. Someone who lives in the area you are looking to buy, has great connections in the estate agency world and most importantly is able to get out to see that peach of a house as soon as it comes to market (if not before). Often that day. Also as a property finder we are often tipped off with a house which is about to come on the market, and can get to see it ahead of the game – licenced queue-jumping if you like. We are then able to get back to you straight away and tell you whether to jump in your car and get down to look pronto, or whether to save your precious time and sit tight for the next opportunity.
