Start by defining your needs and budget. Before you start looking for a new home, it's important to have a clear idea of what you're looking for and how much you're willing to spend. This will help you narrow down your options and focus on properties that match your criteria.
Research the local market that’s relevant to you. Spend some time learning about the local property market, including the types of properties available, the average prices, and the current market trends. This will give you a better understanding of the market and help you to make informed decisions. Following us on social media can help you stay ahead of the curve as we give sneak peaks to properties before we put them on the open market and post content offering market insight information.
Register with the market leading estate agents in your desired area. We will help you find properties that match your criteria, schedule viewings, and negotiate the terms of the sale. We will also provide valuable advice and support throughout the process.
Take your time and do your due diligence. Buying a new home is a big decision, so don't feel pressured to rush into it. Take your time, do your research, and be sure to consider all of your options before making a decision. As property professionals, we are on hand to offer advice and support to ensure that you're making a well-informed decision.
If you can, arrange a solicitor BEFORE you make an offer as this can help speed the process up and show the estate agent that you are a ready and willing buyer. Having to wait weeks for someone to choose a solicitor after having an offer accepted can be incredibly frustrating so try to have all your affairs in order before making an offer.
If you want to make an offer on an Alex Jones property then we will ask you to fill out our offer form, found here. We would ask that this form and the relevant documents are sent to us as soon as possible as often there is a high demand and being prompt can go a long way. The importance of communication and clarity at this stage is massively underestimated. If you can timely provide your offer with the relevant documents to prove your buying position it can go A LONG WAY to getting your offer accepted over someone else who may not be providing clear information.
Once your offer has been accepted we would send all parties a document called a memorandum of sale which highlights all relevant parties in the process. (Buyer/Seller/Solicitors Details/Purchase Price etc.).
At this point we would monitor your progress through yourself and your solicitor as you carry on down the path to completion. Surveys/searches/solicitors forms are all important steps to complete before an exchange and completion date can be agreed by all parties.
The sales process usually takes on average around 12 weeks but it can be quicker or longer depending on the circumstances. Be sure to keep in touch with your solicitor and ourselves as open lines of communication are the most important thing to enable a sale to complete as quickly and efficiently as possible.
On completion day you will collect the keys from our office with a massive smile on your face and leave with a little gift too.
