Estate Agents   |   September 30, 2023   |   Wright & Co Estate Agents


Whether you’re a first-time buyer searching for a small two-bedroom house or you’re trying to find a new four-bedroom detached family home, purchasing a new property is incredibly exciting. However, it can also be very stressful and the process of finding a house that meets all of your needs isn’t always easy. 

Instead of trying to find your next house by yourself, it’s beneficial to get in touch with a local estate agent. There are several ways an estate agent can assist you with your property search and they can take some of the stress out of finding a new home. Below we have looked into a few of the different ways an estate agent can help you. 

Get some realistic advice

The property market is continually evolving and it has changed so much over the last year alone. Sitting down with an estate agent and telling them more about the type of property you’re looking for, as well as what your budget is, will be really useful. Using their wealth of knowledge, an estate agent can tell you how realistic it is that you’ll be able to find a property that meets your needs and is also budget-friendly. 

Learning more about the current market and the selection of properties available will put you in the best position to start the search for your next house. An estate agent can also give you an insight into how long it will likely take you to sell your current property and if this is crucial to your purchase, it’s beneficial to be aware of realistic timeframes. 

Learn more about different areas 

It’s so important to ensure you’re choosing the right location for your next house and a local estate agent will have first-hand knowledge of the areas you’re interested in. Having lived and worked in the local area themselves for many years, an estate agent can provide you with an honest insight into what an area is like, preventing you from purchasing a property in a location that isn’t right for you. 

They may even be able to provide you with some useful area guides. These will tell you more about local amenities, schools and transport links, among other things, and help you to find an area that’s right for both your current and future needs.

Don’t miss out on opportunities 

Often, people don’t realise how quickly the property market moves until they are looking to purchase a new house. If you don’t act quickly, there’s a chance you will miss out on properties that are perfect for you, however, an estate agent can keep an eye on the market for you. They can inform you when a house that meets all of your criteria has just gone up for sale, enabling you to book a viewing before it’s too late. 

When you speak to an estate agent, it’s useful to tell them what you consider to be essential for your next house and which criteria you’re flexible on. They can then make sure you’re not missing out on any properties that could potentially be your new home. 

Receive on-going support 

When you enlist the help of an estate agent, their advice and guidance doesn’t stop once you’ve found your next house. They can provide you with helpful after-care services, including giving you personal recommendations for removal companies and electricians, for example. The best estate agents will build long-term connections with their customers and they will be happy to assist you with any future property sales and purchases.
