 Helping Our Potential Buyers
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed

    Buying a property is an exciting but equally daunting time for many buyers. Whether you are a first time buyer or seasoned purchaser the following guide will hopefully benefit you along the process.


  • paragraph

    How Much Can You Borrow?
    image cannot be displayed

    The first step should be to find out how much you can borrow. Talking to an independent financial advisor, bank or building society will be the starting point. An agreement in principle or decision in principle will be given to you which will state the amount you are able to borrow. Once you have this, you will be in a stronger position to negotiate with a seller.

  • paragraph

    Other Costs To Consider
    image cannot be displayed

    Affordability based on your income and expenditure will be assessed by your financial adviser. You'll also need to consider other costs such as conveyancing fees, surveys, mortgage arrangements, land registry, removals and stamp duty.

  • paragraph

    Your Property Search
    image cannot be displayed

    Now you have your mortgage agreed in principle and you are aware of all your costings it is time to start looking at properties. The more information you provide, the easier it will be for our experts to help you with your property search. With more properties on our database than any other local agent we can hopefully help you find your dream home.

  • paragraph

    Making An Offer
    image cannot be displayed

    Once you have found the prefect property you will want to contact the estate agent and make an offer. When offering you will be required to give details of your financial situation. This could be from deposit amount, loan to value on your mortgage or if purchasing with cash some further questions will be asked.

  • paragraph

    Sale Agreed - What Next?
    image cannot be displayed

    Once your offer is accepted and you have provided all the relevant information to us, the property will be taken off the market in your favour. You will then need to instruct a solicitor and the process will begin.

    Our dedicated after sales Client Manager David Starling, along with your solicitor, will keep you updated during the process. A survey will be arranged, usually through your mortgage company, plus an additional detailed survey, should you choose to have one.

  • paragraph

    Exchanging Contracts
    image cannot be displayed

    The exciting part...

    Before exchange of contracts your solicitor will ask for your deposit. Once that has been paid and cleared you will exchange contracts with a completion date agreed.

  • paragraph

    Completion Day

    After contracts exchange it is time to sort out removals and ensure that you are ready for the completion day. On instructions from the seller's solicitor we will be able to release the keys to you and you will own your new home.

    Testimonials from Sellers

      The service was excellent

      I recently sold a property in Fleet through Ben Murphy and his team. The service was excellent from beginning to end. At the first appointment Ben arrived smartly dressed and very well equipped with marketing tools and information that really stood him out from other competitors I saw. The sales team had several viewings before the property went on the internet and I had a buyer within two weeks. I also liked that they have a separate after-sales manager, David Starling, who updated me throughout the process until the exchange day. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone thinking of selling or buying.

      Very knowledgeable

      Ben has acted for me in both the sale of a property and in assisting with a search for a new one. I have found him to be very knowledgeable, demonstrating a high degree of integrity and empathy at a particularly stressful time, acting as a great support steering us through a challenging process. He is able to quickly build a degree of trust with his clients which I found extremely valuable. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to both future clients and employers.

      I am writing to say how pleased we were to have chosen you to look after the sale of "mothers house"   Right from our first meeting you made us smile. The photographs of the house did us all proud. We are delighted that due to your hard work, patience, caring nature and dedication, the sale was completed quickly. We would certainly recommend your agency to friends and family.

      Efficient, friendly and highly professional

      If you are selling your house in Fleet I can think of no better agent than McCarthy Holden.

      The team there are efficient, friendly and highly professional. In what was the worst chain we have ever experienced they kept going when other agents in the chain seemingly gave up the ghost and saw things through to a successful completion. The support they provided through the process with their in-depth knowledge as well as an empathetic approach helped to keep us sane and focused on the end goal. When we do move house again, and hopefully that is some time away, we will only be seeking the services of one agent.

      Genuinely lovely group of people

      We felt we must contact you to tell you what a superb service we received, from start to finish, and what a genuinely lovely group of people you employ. They hopefully know, by now, how grateful we are but we thought you should know too.

      Initially our main dealings were with Ben & Victoria but after contracts were agreed, David took over and I must tell you that he worked tirelessly to bring the move to a great conclusion, when on several occasions it looked like it may go the other way.   If I popped in to the office, which I did regularly as I walk past most days, everyone stopped to say hello and have a chat or update me on our progress.

        I really can't stress enough how impressed we have been with the service we received and to that effect we would, without hesitation, recommend your company to our friends and families"

      Could not have been better

      We bought our house through these guys, and they could not have been better. They went out of their way and well beyond what I would expect to keep our chain moving and eventual completion. We have lived in the area for years, and moved a lot, so we are well versed with the towns agents - these are one of the good ones (and there are some bad ones!) Thanks to David and Ben - great work.

       PS - I normally despise dealing with estate agents, but I can honestly say these guys are not like your stereotypical agent.

      So refreshing

      Having used a number of agents over the years, I just wanted to write to say what an absolute pleasure it's been dealing with McCarthy Holden and in particular Richard. It was so refreshing to actually deal with someone who we really felt had our best interests at heart. Richard also found us our new house which we're over the moon with, despite telling Richard we didn't like chalet bungalows, he convinced us to take a look as he felt it was perfect for us. Well, he was right, the place is perfect, we're very happy here. We'll probably never move from here, but if we do, we'll certainly use McCarthy Holden.

      Support, passion, professionalism

      Victoria,

      Just a note to thank you for everything you did to help us with our move. The support and passion you showed along with your professionalism really impressed us from when we first met you as buyers ourselves. Having seen you in action we knew that this was the quality of service that we would like to receive and that extra 10 per cent you give makes a big difference. We really appreciate what you did for us and how you turned a stressful housing search into a successful one. We are all loving a new home and would not be here without yours and the other staff at McCarthy Holden help and would definitely recommend you to anyone who was looking for professional estate agents.
