How to buy a house in Billericay

I don't just want to find you a property, I want to find you a home. The one that gives you the feeling when you walk around it; the one that makes you emotional at the thought of it not being yours. 

As your local Billiericay estate agent, I am always available to advise on how to get ready to buy, talking through your wants and identifying your needs. 

Your needs may take you in a direction you hadn't envisaged, leading you to a property that doesn't match your list of wants but where you know instantly it's the one. 

I am here to guide you through the entire process, trust me, I go through all the emotions with you every step of the way.

Finding the right Billericay home

Did you know: 

  • Only a maximum of 3% of properties are on the active market at any one time, and the average rate is only 1% 
  • This means 97%-99% of properties in every town are unavailable for you to view 
  • I can target every off-market home that fits your criteria

I like to spend considerable time helping my clients truly understand what they want and what they need.

In any area, I believe every single house is on the market, whether the home is listed ‘for sale' or not. 50% of sales are from homeowners moving within seven years, but the average is close to 20 years. 

In running my estate agency, I constantly analyse how I can give my clients a distinct advantage. The good news for you as a buyer? - I can proactively target 100% of the properties that match your criteria in a given area as of right now, making the impossible, possible.

How? - I have access to new technology that lists every single property and its attributes. By filtering against your requirements, including bedrooms, price, location, sq/ft, plot size etc. I will contact the owners on your behalf - for free. Together, we draw a digital map to establish where you wish to live to pinpoint the search location, and I do the rest. 


What is a buying agent? A Professional Negotiator. 

As a selling agent, I am very aware of the language used and even a buyer's body language. I use my skills to negotiate on behalf of my clients, the seller, yet the buyer has no help. 

No one in their corner, and it is often very new to them. 

As a buying agent, I switch sides and use my experience to benefit you. 

  • I will get you 'buyer ready' and in a great position 
  • Ensure the selling agent is fully aware of your intention to buy a property
  • Negotiate using critical language without emotion 

I have often been asked the biggest mistake a buyer can make, and it is a quick and easy answer. Emotion

Purchasing a new home is an exciting and sometimes stressful experience. When we find a property we love, we want it. The seller agent will pick up on your tone and work out your 'true' feelings. 

As a buyer agent, I will negotiate without emotion. Instead, I become your emotional partner and screen you from the seller agent, ensuring we get the best result.

How do I charge for a negotiation service?  

I work on performance, so I will get a cut of the saving I make for you. This means you only benefit from my service.
