New build property developments often have sales and marketing staff located on site who offer support to people looking for a new home. However, for older properties, a good estate agent should be proactive in helping to find the right home for you.
If you’re in a position to move quickly, get your agent on-side and let them know exactly what you’re looking for in a new home. With your agent on-board, they should act as your champion and do some of the legwork for you.
If you’re not in a position to move quickly it makes sense to be as prepared as possible by speaking to professionals as soon as you can, giving you a head start when you are able to think seriously about buying.
