DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE A BUYING AGENT CAN MAKE.
Let BDI Home Finders smooth the way to buying your new home.
Finding your perfect home is time-consuming and tricky, particularly if you are new to an area or are simply too busy to look. Our buying agents work with you to make the process as simple as possible.
With most of our clients, we find their ideal property and have placed an offer within six weeks; however, we work at your speed.
Where we work
We cover the whole of London.
What price ranges?
We generally work with clients at the £1m+ level but if your budget is lower, particularly for an investment property, then please do still talk to us; we may be able to help.
How we differ from other Buying Agents
None of the team works with more than two clients at any one time. A higher ratio (sometimes up to 18 clients per consultant in the industry) simply means a high standard of service cannot possibly be delivered. Your personal Consultant should be, and with us will be, living and breathing your search and sales progression 24/7.
Our contract is for nine months. Many in the industry will have 3-month contracts meaning that work will cease at that point. Our fees are transparent and extremely competitive.
Tracy Kellett, Managing Director, is highly respected within the property industry. Quoted extensively throughout the press, a judge on The Sunday Times Estate Agency Awards, a writer for Rightmove, and winner of the Primelocation Favourite property blog 2010.
Our reputation is important, and every one of our clients receives the highest possible service levels, whatever their budget.
From the beginning to the end, we handle the whole process of finding, negotiating, securing and settling you into your new home. If you are looking for a home to rent or a home to buy in London and surrounding areas, there are pitfalls that need to be avoided and you need expert help on the ground to guide you through.
At BDI Home Finders, we have worked closely for over 14 years with overseas clients. Each search is bespoke to the individual client’s needs, taking into account the lack of availability to view and that most clients are not knowledgeable about areas to choose or UK rental or purchasing practices.
Most of our clients also need our help in sourcing lawyers, financiers, and tradespeople, and in the event of investment property, advice on the property management moving forward. Until the keys are in our client’s hands, we are our client’s eyes, ears, and support on the ground. And we do it very professionally.
Many people come to us and say, ‘but I can get the same service from an Estate Agent or lettings agent’. Wrong; it is important to understand that Estate Agents and Lettings Agents only work on behalf of the Landlord or the Seller. It is the Agents role to act in their client’s best interests, as they are paying their fee. It is their job to get the highest price for their clients. Also, each Estate Agent or Lettings Agent will only be able to show you properties that they have been instructed on; therefore in a small part of London, you would need to be talking to easily a dozen Estate Agents to access a reasonable part of the available properties.
We are not here to sell you properties; we are here to help you buy or rent the very best. Smoothly, swiftly and efficiently.
Please call or email us to discuss your particular needs.
Our fees are transparent and extremely competitive – we want to make our service accessible to as many buyers as possible.
Retainer: £1500 payable before commencement of work.
On exchange of contracts: 2% of the purchase price.
No. We typically save our clients far more than our fee in the transaction by negotiating well. We assist property buyers of all budgets by doing extensive research and analysis, looking at comparable sales and market data, and by negotiating hard to secure the best price, terms, and conditions possible. You will make an informed choice and will be confident that you have bought well, whatever your budget. It’s a small investment to make when you consider the savings you could make on your property purchase.
We specialise in the London area.
