Property tips for buying
  • paragraph

    Buying the right house can be one of the most important decisions that you make - so it's important to get it right.

    Here are a few pointers in order to help you find your next dream home.

  • paragraph

    1. A clinical approach
    image cannot be displayed
    On the first viewing, try and remain objective and view the property as a building that needs inspecting. Staying one step removed will help you to formulate a balanced view of the property.
  • paragraph

    2. View it, view it and view it again
    image cannot be displayed
    What you see on the second and third visit may have escaped your attention the first time around. Not only that, but we would recommend that you try to view a property at different times of the day in order to see the bigger picture.
  • paragraph

    3. Don't leave any stone unturned
    image cannot be displayed
    Are there any hairline cracks in the walls or ceiling? If so, make sure you investigate further. Ruling out structural issues from the outset could save you time, money and pain later down the line. Equally, don't be put off the property if you do spot something. A professional opinion will give you peace of mind and may provide you with the power to negotiate on price.
  • paragraph

    4. Make sure it's not a damp squib
    image cannot be displayed
    Be wary of damp. Even if you can't see it damp can be present, so keep your nose tuned in for musty smells.
  • paragraph

    5. Get familiar with the property and area
    image cannot be displayed
    Spend at least 30 minutes looking around the property and at least 30 minutes walking around the general area. The property might be fantastic but if the general area isn't what you're looking for then walking around the area might help you avoid walking into a mistake.
  • paragraph

    6. Only fools rush in
    image cannot be displayed

    Visit the property at rush hour. Is it any different? Is there a build up of traffic at key commuting times? If so, it may influence your decision. Either way, it's best to know as much as you can before you commit.

  • paragraph

    7. Our survey says...
    image cannot be displayed
    Make sure you have your prospective property surveyed. A seller doesn't have to tell you about any problems - and they may even try to cover them up. If a survey reveals the worst possible scenario and one that's enough to put you off the property, don't be disheartened. It may have saved you tens of thousands of pounds in the future.
  • paragraph

    8. Use a checklist
    image cannot be displayed
    Checklists, like the one here , are a fantastic way in which to make sure you gather as much information as possible from your viewings. Don't be afraid to use them - they may help uncover critical information that could influence your decision.
  • paragraph

    9. Think long-term
    image cannot be displayed
    When finding the property of your dreams it's easy to forget to think ahead. It's often worth asking yourself would you be happy living in the property three, four and five years from now - and will this property suit your long-term (and even short-term) plans?
  • paragraph

    10. Find a good mortgage broker
    image cannot be displayed
    Once you've found someone who you feel comfortable with, make sure you have a written 'in principle' offer from the start as this can speed things up once you have an offer accepted.

      I would recommend 100%
      Absolutely delighted with the service we received from the lovely team at Seymour's.After a rather unsuccessful couple of months with another Estate Agency in town we decided to move our property to Seymour's. Superb team, excellent communication and a full asking price sale from the first person to view. After accepting an offer we have had great communication for the team and always find them friendly and approachable. I would recommend 100%.Thank-you David, Jamie and Heather :-)

      Jamie and the team were incredible
      The Seymours Dorking team are fantastic. We sold our cottage in Dorking with them and it turned into a long and difficult sale due to the buyer's bank. Jamie and the team were incredible, constantly chasing and following up on any delays, keeping the process going, patiently updating us all the time. As well as their expertise and professionalism, they were kind and caring. A great team, thank you so much.

      Fantastic Estate Agents! The whole team provide an excellent service and made selling our house easy.

      Right from our first meeting with David we knew they were the Agent for us with great personal service from start to finish.

They did everything to ensure that the sale went through smoothly, they were easy to get hold of, great communication, liaised with solicitors and vendors to ensure the sale didn't lose momentum.

      using Seymours makes it that little bit easier
      I could not recommend Seymours enough! From the moment they came to value our house, I instantly knew they were the estate agents to sell our property and I was completely right.David, Jamie and Heather have such a personal approach and sold our house within a week!

      Seymours have been absolutely great
      Seymours have been absolutely great from the very beginning I couldn't recommended them enough. They took time to understand our family set up and therefore what would work during the selling process. Whenever I phoned the office everyone knew the details of the sale and I didn't need to wait until David was in the office to get the answers I needed. When they said they would ring back they did, I didn't have to chase them. On the approach of exchange our chain got quite complicated and stressful and but Seymours worked extremely hard in getting us to a successful conclusion and really went above and beyond. If you want a less stressful move then I would most definitely recommend Seymours of Dorking.

      Fantastic property buying and selling experience through Seymours Estate Agents in Dorking. David and his team at Serymours were incredibly proactive in both getting us the right deal for our property and introducing us to our ideal home. Better still, they were proactive and supportive the whole way along the process right through to completion in just a few months. Friendly, non-pushy local estate agents that my partner and I have no reservations recommending and would certainly use again! Thank you

      Outclassed everyone else
      I really can't recommend Seymours Estate Agents highly enough. It has been an absolute pleasure working with David and Jamie! We have recently purchased our first home through Seymours. From viewing the house for the first time, to exchange and completion, David has been absolutely brilliant. 
      David answered all of our questions and regularly contacted us (and our mortgage advisor and solicitor) to make sure everything was progressing smoothly. He made everything so much simpler than we expected - and the entire house buying process was totally stress free!

      If you're looking to sell - choose Seymours 
      Working with Jamie was like having our very own property procurement team. After a brief meeting at a house viewing (not quite what we were after), Jamie soon established what we were looking for and the following week - BOOM! The home of our dreams!! And sure enough, our offer was accepted. ( I think he was more excited than we were :-P )Through the process, Jamie has continued to be with us the whole way ensuring the sale kept progressing along (where he could) and constantly remained in contact with us and the seller, keeping us abreast of any challenges (yep, we had a couple) and addressing them swiftly to keep things rolling along.
