From our experience we know that although finding a property is exceedingly time consuming it is the next phase of securing the property that people find the most stressful and the cause much anxiety, which is why Vision provides
The ideal time to contact us is when you have put your house on the market but prior to receiving an offer - but if it is later that too is not a problem.
Moving home is one of the most stressful events in your life and whilst many clients enjoy finding their future home they certainly DO NOT enjoy the stress and strain, time and inconvenience and cost involved in moving.
Not everyone wishes to retain the services of a Home Search consultant to manage their entire home move, from finding their perfect home to moving in, but our feedback tells us that they would like a professional company to remove the stress and strains involved in the negotiating and organising of the whole process from Negotiation to Completion.
Once a client has fallen in love with a property their heart then tends to rule their head when negotiating their purchase price with the agent who, of course, is working on behalf of the seller. They don’t want to lose their property but may end up paying more than they needed to secure it.
Solicitors, surveyors, mortgage companies, agents up and down the chain all need to work together to ensure a smooth completion. You would think, as their fee paying client undertaking one of the most important and most expensive purchases in your lifetime, that they would ensure that your purchase proceeds smoothly and timely. UNFORTUNATELY this is not always the case. Chains are broken for many reasons BUT there ARE a number that can be avoided. As part of our Move Solutions package we ensure that our clients are kept at the forefront of the daily trawl through solicitors conveyancing files, we liaise with solicitors and agents up and down the chain ensuring that no piece of information however small or large may hold up or even break the chain are missed. “I don’t know how Vision managed to obtain the last piece of information the other solicitor was requesting at such a late stage quicker than I could, to ensure that exchange of contracts took place that day to stop the chain from breaking down” – Vance Harris solicitors, London
We will ensure that the surveyor undertake and report back swiftly avoiding wasted days. If needed we will attend the survey so you do not have to take the time off work.
Removal quotes will be organised, Utilities will be transferred, new telephone lines and numbers obtained. We will supply you with pre-printed change of address cards to send to friends and family.
Move Solutions was introduced through feedback that was given by sellers whilst we undertook homes searches on behalf of our clients last year. We have launched this unique service to home buyers in Kent to ensure that home moving is made as simple and stress free as possible.
