'Search. Find. Advise. Acquire.'
The Cotswold Buying Agent is an independent residential property finder and sourcing agent covering The Cotswolds, including Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire.
We provide a professional and highly personal service to private clients and investors. Buying a property should always be a positive and rewarding experience. By engaging a skilled independent buying agent, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of having the best possible representation.
We source the best country houses, equestrian property, farms and small estates for sale. An estimated 80% of the most desirable properties never come onto the open market, but we have established good working relationships with the estate agents and other useful contacts to ensure our clients are among the first to see these properties. We will negotiate and follow up the proposed purchase on your behalf, and also your sale, in order to guarantee a smooth transaction. We recommend and assist with surveys, planning, builders quotes, independent mortgage advisors, insurers and so on.
The key to finding your dream property is to choose an independent buying agent who will listen to you and totally understand your needs.
After fully understanding your demands, completing extensive research into your chosen areas and with a clear brief in mind, we will personally complete all the legwork involved in the search, create a short list of pre-viewed properties and accompany you to your viewings.
Once your ideal property has been found we will undertake a detailed price comparison report using Land Registry data and recent sale comparable to establish a fair market value.
We will agree a negotiation strategy with you and work to secure the most favourable terms with the selling agent.
We can also assist if you have already found your property but you would like expert help and guidance with the process.
We will introduce you to a network of trusted contacts who will undertake the required due diligence to ensure your purchase is sound – from a legal and structural perspective.
This can include potential renovation costs and end values, awareness of potential problems such as flight paths, eyesores, footpaths and other environmental issues, the income and running cost of the house, rental yields and guidance local amenities, schooling any other issues important to you.
