Couple relocating from London wishing to buy a country home with land in Worcestershire
Our client was relocating from London to the Midlands and was unfamiliar with the area. Their brief was for a family home with up to 7 acres of land within commutable distance of Birmingham. Having spoken to all the agents and our contacts in the area, we previewed a range of property options and areas within budget and managed to identify a property that met all the client’s requirements within the first viewings day.
We negotiated a significant discount on the sale price which offset our fee and as the property required scope for development we supplied a choice of local architects for our client to select from. We then liaised with the architect and advised the client on the planning process whilst overseeing the conveyancing and keeping in touch with the vendor’s agent to keep all parties fully informed of progress. Finally, we provided a tailored local information guide covering commuting and schools information, as well as local amenities and services.
“Faced with relocating to an area that we were not familiar with, we found Fish Home Finders service invaluable. Our simple, but wide ranging brief; a rural property, within easy reach of Birmingham, with land, did not faze them. To complicate matters, we both worked in London and had very limited time and availability.”
“After an initial meeting to discuss our needs, they organised a day of property viewing showing us six properties within our budget, but demonstrating a wide variety. We believe that the majority of the success was due to the fact that Heather and David had recognised what we wanted from a property, more than we realised ourselves. By the end of the first day, we knew exactly what we wanted and what was in our budget. (We actually went on to buy one of the properties seen that day). Heather and David made the whole process, from finding our perfect home through to completing the purchase, exceptionally easy.“
“There were many examples of outstanding service we were provided with, but two particular services we valued the most, in our particular circumstances. The first was the detailed information that they provided us with, following extensive research on topics ranging from planning permissions considerations, commuter routes, schools to local amenities – some of these areas we had not considered ourselves! The second was the efficient manner in which Heather and David managed the whole process. They remained in constant contact with the architect, solicitors and estate agents, taking this entire process off our hands, whilst providing us with regular updates on where we were and what the next steps were.”
“We are both extremely happy with the professional and friendly service provided by Heather and David. The amount of time, effort and stress they saved us through the entire process from initial viewings to completion represents exceptional value for money. We have waxed lyrical about them to our friends and business colleagues and would not hesitate to recommend Fish Home Finders to anyone needing a relocating service.”
