Property Search Agents - The Benefits

Making The Right Choices

When you’re moving to a new county, you want to be sure that you’re buying in the right location. A buying agent simplifies the process by providing expert advice, support and assistance throughout the buying process, from initial search to final completion.

Saving Time & Money

Property searching can take a great deal of time, energy and money if you don’t already live in Dorset, 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.

The Best Property Always Sells Fast

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 negotiations 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.

Local Property Finders

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 family.

Experienced 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.

Living in Dorset

Why Buy Property in Dorset?

Dorset often seems like the forgotten county. Its stunning rolling countryside, combined with affluent little towns and close access to the coast make it an idyllic place to live.

Dorset is most definitely still within the commuter belt for those prepared to travel to London a number of days a week. The county is well connected with mainline railway stations on the Waterloo line.

Historically, Dorset was made up of big country estates and remained largely untouched by the Industrial revolution meaning many character properties (such as rectories) still retain their original beauty.

Coastal Property in Dorset

The classic coastal property in Dorset is Sandbanks – the most expensive land prices outside of London. Whilst we don’t specifically deal with this microcosm, there are plenty of other coastal property locations where real estate gives you far greater value for your money.

The Jurassic Coast is impressive and coastal property searches tend to look at:

  • West Bay
  • Lyme Regis
  • Charmouth
  • Weymouth

Most of the waterside property is really based on the coast itself.

Commuter Belt Property

Dorset is most definitely still within the commuter belt with readily accessible trains and stations to London.

Railway Links
A regular high speed train service operates from London Paddington and can take as little as 2.5 hours.

  • London Waterloo– Dorchester, 2.5-3 hours approx.
  • London Waterloo– Weymouth, 3 hours approx.

Airports at Bristol, Bournemouth and Exeter provide a variety of airport links to international destinations.

The M3 provides a direct route into London from Southampton. Most of Dorset is served by well-maintained A roads.

Holiday & Investment Property

Properties in Dorset still have a very good rental potential, especially considering their proximity to London and the home counties.

Independent Schools

Dorset offers a huge range of independent schools, including Sherborne, Bryanston, Bruton (technically in Somerset) and Port Regis prep school.
