Whilst watching a property relocation programme recently, I got the distinct impression that the buyers were either ill prepared or had not considered what kind of property they wanted. They were certainly unaware what type of properties were available within their budget.  The dream list included a garden with enough space for a veggie patch, chicken coop, area for large trampoline, herb and pet enclosure and the property criteria was just as demanding. Fine if you have the right funds but sadly this was not the case here. The buyer’s disappointment on screen, as reality dawned, was palpable! The problem was, in my opinion and is often the case, the buyers did not understand the market nor the reality of what they could get for their buck. In this case the search was within some rural southern English idyll. Don’t get me wrong, even though I’m an estate agent, I have been in a similar position, the fantasy vortex where the heart takes over.

 

As buyers, we do have to differentiate between rightfully expecting a lot for our hard earned cash and the reality of market conditions. Even in the economic crash it seems property prices were, at worst, little effected and in some areas continued to head upwards. The usual story of supply and demand. It pays to do a bit of homework and understand your must haves, such as the number of bedrooms, over the nice to haves in a property. There may not be room for a chicken or two when it comes down to the hard maths.

 

It’s a good idea to sit down with your partner and the family or whoever will be sharing the property and discuss the reality and expectations. Use the internet to see what is on the market in your price range. Ask family members for their opinions so when you do approach an estate agent your list may be long and plentiful but you will know what is acceptable and affordable. Prospects now in harmony, it’s then time for the specific property search. You can be very clear about what it is you want to view. This will save you time and a lot of needless bother from the estate agent. As long as the agent is listening of course!

 

Clear communication with your Estate Agent is vital.  Homework done, you can tell them exactly what you desire and where you are or are not willing to comprise.  If you say that you want a detached property and the agent keeps sending you information on semi-detached houses then maybe there is a communication problem or worse, the agent is just lazy.  This relationship is extremely important, particularly as you may be trusting that agent to find your future home, often within a certain time period and at a great price.
