Why Use A Property Finding Service?

Fewer Wasted Journeys

Many clients contact us when their own searches have proven fruitless or expensive.

In Cornwall, particularly, distance is a major consideration in the property finding process.

Save Time, Energy & Money

Property searching can take a great deal of time, energy and money if you don’t already live in Cornwall, or the South West and know the local area.

A property search agent can help you identify the right property and location quickly, and help you make what perhaps is amongst the largest financial decisions you’ll ever make.

Local Property Experts

Buying in an unfamiliar location can be a minefield. With local experts on your side, you’ll be armed with inside knowledge to make the best purchase choices for you and your circumstances.

Making The Right Choice

It’s a misconception that a generally slower property market means it’s easier to buy the right property. In fact, the best property sells fast in almost any market, and holds its value better too. We can help you make those distinctions and conduct negotations on your behalf to achieve the right price.

As buying agents, we expect to find you the very finest property matching your requirements and budget.

Experienced, Objective Negotiators 

When you find a home you want to purchase, the negotiation stage is key.

An impartial, detached and experienced negotiator can make a significant difference to final purchase price you pay.

Off Market Property

In the current climate, where some sellers are reluctant to put their property on the Cornwall property market, it’s invaluable to use someone who has the right contacts and can put you in touch with properties that are not yet advertised for sale.

This is particularly true at the much higher end of the market.

Buying Property in Cornwall

The Cornish Lifestyle

Cornwall is a true outdoor county.

The Atlantic coast of Cornwall offers an abundance of surfing and other watersports. The Southern coast of Cornwall is equally renowned for the quality of sailing.

Why Cornwall?

Cornwall is a county to choose if you want to live here, or indeed own a holiday property. For most, it’s outside of regular commuter reach, and this lends a very different feel to the lifestyle.

Cornwall has a wealth of stunning coastal scenery and property. The county is heavily dependent on tourism with 24% of the county’s GDP coming from the holiday industry. Some particularly popular villages experience a huge population increase in Summer.

The Best Places To Live In Cornwall

  • Carrick Roads, creeks and coves, River Fal
  • Helford river
  • Padstow, Rock, Port Isaac
  • Newquay is suitable for buying rental property
  • St. Mawes
  • Truro & Falmouth

Clearly, what counts as the best place to live depends upon your own personal priorities and objectives.

Cornish Beach & Coastal Property

Cornwall’s geography, out on a limb as it is, means that you’re never too far away from beach and spectacular coastline. With an abundant tourist industry, you may want to avoid hot spots which get overcrowded in Summer and then become ghost towns in winter.

The coastline offers plenty from long, sandy beaches to secluded creeks and tidal coves.

The tremendous choice in property reflects the popularity of the destination, including magnificent country estates, stunning contemporary beach houses down to tiny, picture perfect fishermen’s cottages.

Waterside Property

Waterside property isn’t just limited to coastal stretches.

Some of the most sought after waterside property populates the banks of tidal inlets, creeks and coves, such as the Helford river, river Fal and Carrick Roads.

Independent Schools

There a fewer independent schools in Cornwall than in Devon and Somerset.

Plymouth university has a big campus in Falmouth.


– London Paddington – Penzance, 5.5 hours approx.
– London Paddington – Newquay, 5.25 hours approx.
– London Paddington – Falmouth, 6 hours approx.

There are up to 3 flights daily from Newquay to London Gatwick. Newquay has a summer schedule of flights to European cities.

Motorways extend as far as Exeter, beyond which a network of A and B roads serve the county.

Holiday and Investment Property

A diverse range of holiday and investment property is available. In some places up to 90% of properties re holiday homes.

Rental potential is high because of a successful tourist industry which makes for 24% of the county’s GDP and supports 1 in 5 jobs.
