Everything You Need to Know About Property Consultancy

Are you considering investing in a property but not sure if it’s worthwhile? Or, maybe you’re purchasing a property but want to take away some of the stress involved in the process? This is where property consultancy can help. Consultants are there to guide you through the whole process of purchasing a property. They are experts in the market and can provide you with the best advice when investing. 

You might be wondering, what’s the difference between an estate agent and a property consultant? The main difference is that estate agents are there to make a sale, it may seem they genuinely want to help you, but the aim of the game is to sell a property (and get that commission). A property consultant is genuinely there to help you every step of the way.

Main Duties of a Property Consultant

Researching the Market

The housing market is constantly changing, so property consultants need to keep updated with any changes. Changes in house prices, the buying process, market trends, the list goes on.


Building Relationships with Clients

Property consultants need to build up a rapport with their clients to gain trust and confidence. Investing in property is an expensive and risky process, so this is an essential part of the role.


Handling Paperwork

Purchasing a house is a stressful procedure, and the amount of paperwork involved can be overwhelming, especially for investors who buy multiple properties. Property consultants take over, removing a large part of the stress for the buyer.


Help the Client, Every Step of the Way!

The main aim of a property consultant is to remove the stress from the buyer. They even help with moving house, organising removal men and transport, even sourcing child-care! An estate agent works in the seller’s interest; a property consultant works in the interest of the buyer.


Main Benefits of Using a Property Consultant

They Know What a Property is Worth

As mentioned above, consultants know everything about the housing market. They know what houses are worth and have analytical tools that give accurate estimates of a property value. It can be challenging to determine this independently as houses can vary so much, even on the same street. Using a consultant means you will not be overpaying for a property.


They Can Help You Find Your Dream Home

Property consultants can source properties for you. Consultants will find out what you want and don’t want in your property and use this information to look out for potential investment opportunities. If you are looking for your dream home, you can let the consultant know what essential features you are looking for, and they will let you know when anything appropriate pops up on the market.


They Can Help You Negotiate a Better Price

So your consultant has found out how much a property is worth, but the asking price is too high. Negotiating a better price with the estate agent can be daunting. Property consultants can do this part of the process for you. With their knowledge and experience, they are probably more likely to get the price down. 


They Take Over with the Boring Paperwork

Anyone who has purchased property will know that the amount of paperwork involved can pile up. A lot of the paperwork is full of jargon that most of us might not even understand. Letting a consultant take over the handling of the paperwork will give you peace of mind when investing. They know what they’re looking at.

Buying property sounds stressful, right? Whether you are investing in houses to rent out or purchasing your first home, property consultants are here to help you every step of the way.
