The seller engages an estate agent to achieve the highest possible price for their property. Part of their job is to disguise and downplay negatives that may be a deterrent. They will only be able to offer properties they have listed, usually in a well defined area.
The buyer engages a property finder to find the right property at the lowest possible price. As we cover entire regions we can compare and contrast alternatives across several locations. An estate agent wants to sell and doesn’t really care whether it suits the buyer or not. They always try to show properties in the most favourable light. If an estate agent tells me I can only view a property in the morning I am immediately suspicious. In all probability there is no afternoon sun and they are trying to disguise the fact. If an agent pushes for weekend viewings you can be quite sure traffic thunders past on weekdays! A buyer’s agent does the exact opposite. You can be confident we will alert you to any negative aspects related to the property or its surroundings.
