Are you skillfully represented in your property purchase or just simply DIY?

Buying a property is such a considerable investment, few can afford to get it wrong.  In all the excitement and rush, too many buyers feel very uncomfortable about offering competitively and are not aware that professional advice is available to them.  They really should appoint a professional negotiator to act on their behalf to agree a deal at the best price to them. 

 

Remember in the majority of cases the seller is represented by their agent, a highly skilled negotiator to obtain the best possible price for their client.  Don't leave yourself unrepresented.   Doing a DIY on your house purchase may lead you into a very expensive place.   After having agreed to buy don’t expect the seller to reduce the price by the cost of the works the surveyor has found, as in most cases you are only likely to end up with a sale by meeting halfway with the costs, as well as having to deal with a likely disgruntled seller.  At Peter Illingworth we offer a highly skilled negotiation service for the buyer.  We would hope to have been engaged right at the point of the first property viewing, in order to protect our client’s position in the negotiations. We are remunerated on the savings we make on the purchase price with a minimum charge of £120 inclusive of VAT.
