  • New service for homebuyers

    Hello to everybody on this forum.

    For a long time I have felt that property purchasers were getting a raw deal. Estate agents act on behalf of the seller, but there are few people looking after the buyer and I have decided to address that.

    I look forward to being a regular contributor on this site.

    ...and you're going to address this HOW?

      Hopefully the website will explain all.

        OK, I'll bite. You're going to take £399 + VAT upfront from a buyer, then e-mail them with updates of what they're looking for in their chosen area.

        Q: Which areas of the UK are you going to operate in? The whole of it?

        You offer a guarantee - "A full money back gurantee is offered if we don't save at least our fee on the purchase price of the property."

        Q: What's the starting point for definition of "the purchase price of the property"? The asking price? That's fine if you have sellers asking for a fixed price, but in my neck of the woods, properties are routinely marketed on an "Offers Over" basis, to encourage interested parties to bid against each other. If a property is marketed at Offers Over £100,000, it could maybe sell at £105,000, or £130,000, depending on the state of the market and its desirability. How would you determine any saving in order to apply your guarantee?

        Q: If I, or any other Scottish resident, were to consider your services, tell us why you would be any better placed to negotiate on my behalf than any solicitor or other agent that I might choose to make an offer on my behalf? Do you have any experience of negotiating in the Scottish market? More to the point, why would I want to pay £399+VAT to you, when it seems routine for Scottish solicitors to take instructions and make offers with no up-front fee?
