Buying and managing a second home from outside the area or country can be a very frustrating experience.

Not being “on the ground” on a daily basis often means you miss out on the best properties. Planning a viewing trip to then find there is nothing suitable to view is a waste of valuable time. Not having local knowledge and experience often results in over paying. Not having local connections often means you will not even get to see the best properties.

The Buying Agents handle every aspect of acquiring a second home from conducting the initial search to managing the property between stays. The process we employ is tailored to your specific situation to ensure the most efficient use of your time and funds while ensuring access to the largest range of suitable property.

We can arrange every component of your inspection trip if required or liaise with your staff to ensure a seamless schedule. This may be a dedicated viewing day/trip or coinciding the inspections with a business trip or holiday.

In your absence we will conduct the search maintaining an up to date shortlist of suitable property. The moment you are able to view or see something you like we can then act swiftly to view and secure it or acquire it on your behalf if not intending to view.

Our bespoke best in class system allows our clients to log in from anywhere in the world and view their shortlist of property at any time. The system contains everything you need to assess each property including photos, floorplans, videos, financial forecasts and property reports. You will also receive automatic email alerts the moment new properties are added and the system is fully interactive so we know exactly what you like and do not like. This technology is not designed to replace good old fashioned communication; it simply gives our clients real time information from any location giving them a competitive advantage that enables them to act quickly with deeper levels of insight.

Please feel free to contact The Buying Agents for a discreet no obligation consultation.
