Nowadays, the hunt for your new home begins online: Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation all offer property alerts, arriving conveniently by email as new properties come to the market.
So why register your details as an applicant with John German, as perhaps you might have done in the days before the Internet?
We often hear tales of property-searching woe, from people who have just missed out on their dream homes because someone has pipped them to the post. It’s not enough just spending hours each day trawling the property portals, because that’s what everyone else is doing too!
Although many buyers may consider registering with an estate agent to be somewhat outdated, it can actually be the most effective way of finding and securing a property before someone else sees it first.
In a buoyant, fast-moving market, John German often have buyers lined up before a property even appears on the portals, in fact – there may not even be time to get photographs done and a description drawn up in many cases.
That’s because, like all good agents, John German keeps a list of ‘hot buyers’; that is, buyers keen to move quickly and who will view a property at often very short notice. When properties are literally flying off the shelves, it’s these buyers who can get in early, and bid on a property before it’s officially even on the market.
The lesson here is, if you’re looking seriously for a property, and you are keen to make sure you don’t miss out on your next dream home, then give us a call!
Register your details with John German as an interested buyer; not only will this make sure you get to know about properties before anyone who isn’t registered with us, but you are also demonstrating that you are a motivated buyer, and we will love you for it.
Get on the John German hot buyers’ list, be ready for that call, and you’ll be in your dream home before you know it, and certainly before the internet searchers even get wind the house is for sale!
At John German we are always here for help and advice on any aspect of buying or selling your home.
