Citrus Property and House Buying Agents
UK House Buying
As an award winning house buying and relocation services company, Citrus are passionate about helping our clients find their perfect property. Our principle aims are to reduce the stress associated with house buying. We do this by saving you money by significantly negotiating down the purchase price. We save you time, sourcing a property that fits with your lifestyle. If you are looking for a perfect new home or wish to invest in property we have many longstanding relationships. These are with experienced estate agents and developers to ensure we find you the best properties available. We often access homes that have not yet been released onto the property market. As your independent property finder we act solely on your behalf to search the whole marketplace to find a property which accurately matches your brief and budget. House buying has never been easier than with Citrus.
Property buying process
We will either meet with you in person or arrange a telephone consultation to discuss your property requirements in depth • Once you have signed our terms and paid the initial retainer fee we will begin to preview properties • We will then take you to view shortlisted properties within seven days • We will continue to search the market until a suitable property has been sourced • We negotiate the offer and manage the purchasing process including liaising with your mortgage lender or broker • We manage all communication channels, whether this be with the estate agents, solicitors or surveyors to ensure that your property purchase and move is as stress free and efficient for you as possible Having managed many house purchases our knowledge of the UK buying process is second to none.
Orientation Tour (optional)
If you are unfamiliar with your chosen location, we can take you on a location and property orientation to show you potential areas of interest. An orientation tour is an invaluable tool as it helps many of our clients understand the cost associated when buying different types of property in various areas across the UK. It can also help clients to visualise if the location is suitable to their lifestyle and to better understand their potential commute. If appropriate we can also provide information on local amenities including schools, leisure and shopping facilities.
