we sit looking out over our gardens and horses, we are so thrilled
to be in our new home and we look forward to many happy years here.
Sands Home Search provided a thoroughly professional and personal
service which has helped make all this possible. Whenever we wanted
to discuss any matters, Shaun was always available to talk to. No
matter how intense it all got, he remained calm and reassuring throughout."
* Bill Lowry is the M.D. of Biggin Hill Helicopters (www.bhh.co.uk)
for a desirable country property for sale in Kent or East Sussex
is a challenging task on the best of days. Finding one that can
house two families, one dog and three horses, with additional room
for stabling, paddocks and space to land a helicopter verges on
the impossible. Yet this was the task presented to Sands Home Search
by Bill Lowry, M.D. of Biggin Hill Helicopters*.
To add to the pressure he needed to move in time for the start of
the next school year. Accustomed to such demands, Sands set to
work, combing the area for a property that
would meet every one of the stringent requirements.
Perhaps surprisingly for those unfamiliar with property acquisition
specialists, Spring Farm Oast was located and decided upon within
"New clients often don't realise that finding the right property
is only half the task," Shaun Ascough comments. "Because
we are constantly looking for quality properties, we tend to hear
about them first. The negotiations that follow are the next crucial
Shaun Ascough advised Bill Lowry that sellers and their estate agents
do not always accept the highest offer. A lower offer is often more
acceptable if buyers are able to demonstrate that they are in a
position to proceed with the sale immediately.
Bill Lowry finalised his financing arrangements, whilst Sands identified
a full picture about the property to determine the most effective
offer negotiation strategy. Through ten days of intense negotiations,
Shaun Ascough kept Bill Lowry fully updated with progress reports
that demonstrated the time, effort and skills involved in the process.
The outcome was beneficial for everyone. The seller sold Spring
Farm Oast to a buyer able to complete quickly. Bill Lowry secured
the property at a six figure discount on the asking price - something
he would never have thought possible at the outset.
During the subsequent conveyancing process in the weeks leading
up to the day of exchange, Sands remained calm and helpful, resolving
every issue, however small.
Bill Lowry exchanged contracts on 16 September and completed a week
later, moving into his new home which was everything he and his
family had ever wanted.
"I certainly would not hesitate in recommending the services
