Buying a home is probably the biggest purchase you will make and we fully understand that it can be a daunting experience. This is why it's important to us that we make it as smooth and stress free as possible.
You can search the properties that we currently have for sale here and please register with us here detailing what type of property you are looking for. This ensures you won't miss out on a suitable property when it comes on the market, and also means that you will be sent details of properties that are being 'soft marketed', ie, before news of the sale reaches the wider public.
We would always recommend having a mortgage agreed in principle before beginning your property search, as this will help give you an idea of budget. Knowing that a potential buyer has a mortgage agreed in principle also makes you attractive to sellers.
We work in partnership with local company P&M with Merrett Ltd, who are our in house independent mortgage advisers. They will search the whole market and use software which provides access to lenders across the UK, resulting in impartial advice and delivery of competitive rates. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
