What are your fees?
We work on the basis of an initial registration fee which covers a period of 12 months search then a % commission based on the purchase price of the property or 15% of the negotiated saving (whichever is the greater). The negotiated saving being the difference between the asking price and the purchase price. The registration fee is deducted from the final fee. If you choose to discontinue your search you will owe Sussex Homesearch nothing further than the registration fee.
Why should I use your service when an Estate agent is free?
Estate agents are paid by, and work for, somebody selling a property. Their role is to achieve the highest possible price for their clients. We work solely on behalf of the buyer.
We are fully up to date with all the latest information about local sale prices from all agents and access all of our contacts and experience when negotiating – all of which gives you the advantage over both the vendor and other rival buyers.
Many our clients complain that estate agents waste their time by showing inappropriate or overpriced properties. We always preview and shortlist properties for you, and only suggest the properties that are worth considering.
Do you only find me a property to buy?
No. Once we have negotiated an agreed offer we then help you through the buying process and offer advice every step of the way until the property has exchanged. We then offer and arrange details of the best professionals to help you move which includes surveyors, solicitors, architects, interior designers, builders, and movers.
