Some answers to commonly asked questions.

What are the benefits of using a buying agent?

A buying agent does not compete with estate agents – we are considered by agents and vendors as valued counterparts. This can save you valuable time and money, avoiding any unnecessary stress.

An independent agent, such as The Cotswold Buying Agent, will proactively search the market using a network of contacts get you first through the door to your dream property – including those that are not yet on the market.

How do you have access to the off-market properties?

With over 20 years’ experience, Samantha has built excellent personal relationships with many contacts – which means she often hears about properties long before they become available to the open market.

Who are your clients?

The Cotswold Buying Agent finds and acquires property on behalf of private buyers and investors.

Some clients have been let down by estate agents after months of failed home buying bids, and others simply don’t have the time to search for property and engage in negotiations. Other clients have already found a property and need guidance through the buying process, including guidance on price, negotiating the best possible terms and communicating with solicitors, surveyors, architects, and builders along the way.

How can you reduce the guide price?

Samantha has an in-depth knowledge of The Cotswold property market, and with 20 years experience, understands the true value of a property. If a property is not priced correctly, she will negotiate so that it is.
