UK Country Property Search and Advice

In the prime UK Country property market (properties valued at £2m and above) there are, at any one time, somewhere around 1,000 individual properties being sold by over 2,000 estate (selling) agents.

Unlike many international destinations, there is no multi-listing system in place nor one reliable database holding every available UK Country property for sale. Therefore property buyers need to contact most, if not all, estate agents in order to access all openly available properties.

The estate agents are only working on one side of the transaction i.e. that of the seller and they are generally interested in getting the highest price possible for the properties that they have specific instructions to sell.

A further problem for the Country Property buyer is that the most sought after properties are not on the internet, nor on the open market. These properties are usually discretely and confidentially offered for sale and most will sell privately to the best prepared & connected property buyers.

Sands Home Search have access to over £1 Billion of confidentially available prime property throughout the UK which are most definitely not accessible via any public internet sites.

There is such variety of prime property within the UK Country Property Market that it is often a near impossible task for the unrepresented buyer to determine a market value. The fact that it is very common for a prime Country property to realise a sale price in excess of the asking price, further complicates the issue.

The estate agent is contracted to achieve the right price for the seller and they are under no obligation to advise whether a property is suitable or whether it represents a fair price from the buyer’s perspective, meaning the potential for making expensive mistakes is large.

In reality the unrepresented buyer has very little chance of accessing all the most desirable property in that the most desirable is always the most sought after – it sells quickly and often well before ever reaching the open market.

To access and secure the best property requires time, dedication, inside knowledge and an extensive network of contacts – this is how Sands Home Search can help.
