You have a deposit and you have talked to several banks, so you have a good idea of how much money you will be able to raise. It's time to go house hunting!
1. FIRST STOP: OUR WEBSITE
A great first stop is Larkes.co.uk, where every property on our books is detailed - with photos, floor plans and location maps. The search facility makes it very easy to find a home in the area you like, at a price you can afford.
2. TALK TO US!
Next, give us a ring or drop into our conveniently located office to talk to one of the teams, who will be able to answer all your questions about property types in the area, the facilities each locality has to offer and all you need to know about the purchase process.
3. SEE FOR YOURSELF
Once you have identified some possible properties, a team member will be pleased to arrange viewings of the properties at times suitable for you. We believe in giving clients the freedom to look around every property without too much 'tour guiding' but with all the necessary information and advice available.
4. MAKE AN OFFER
Found somewhere you like? Make an offer! All offers from qualified buyers will be presented to the vendor promptly and their answer relayed without delay. Our company ethos is to do our very best to get a price that is fair to both the buyer and the seller.
When you have agreed a price with the seller, you can start the purchase process. This is the time to let your mortgage lender know, so they can send a valuer to check everything meets their requirements. You will also need to instruct a solicitor or conveyancer (if you don't have one, we can recommend a reliable firm).
It may seem complex, but we're here to guide you every step of the way with advice and assistance
