So do you want to live the dream of having a holiday home but don’t want the hassle? Or not sure if you’ll know a bargain when you see one?

Sourcing all the necessary third parties that might get involved in a second home purchase, can be more onerous abroad than in the UK. For example you might need: a “Sworn” or Certified translator (translating for legal equivalence is a legal requirement in some countries) an independent lawyer, a suitable bank that offers a decent mortgage rate and whose account you can operate remotely over the internet from the UK.

In the UK, sourcing a property against a specific brief can save a busy, professional lots of wasted, “first-viewing” time. Are we talking year round facilities needed because holidays will be taken throughout the school holiday season? Or ease of access to beaches? If these are deal-breakers, better to get them checked out first before seeing the property yourself.

Are you looking for a renovation project, but not sure what state “irreparable” is? A decent Agent will be able to check out and advise on whether a project may be biting off more than you can chew, or will blow the budget for post-completion work.

So the “point” of a professional Agent or Buyer’s Agent is to save:

  • Your time, particularly if you have a full-time career
  • Your money, so that you buy within your budget, including any work that might need to be done post-purchase
  • The amount of hassle involved in acquiring the property you intended to.
