Wrestling with newspapers, surfing the net, guessing at pricing and wondering just what that legal clause in Afrikaans means – these are just a few of the reasons why sourcing the ideal property can become stressful, time consuming and worst of all, lead to bad decisions.
For those of us from abroad, purchasing a property in South Africa is also very often different to the process in our home countries. Offers are made in writing and are legally binding (with no cooling off period), no attorney is appointed to act for the buyer and structural surveys are not common.
SA HomeBuyers offers a buyers consultancy service – it acts purely on behalf of the purchaser or lessee. We do not offer houses, commercial property or investment property for sale, or act for any seller in any capacity. Nor are we connected to any finance houses or estate agents.
In short we are an independent buyers consultancy with an unashamed bias to ensuring our clients (the buyers) source the right property, at the right price, in the right area at the most advantage terms and conditions for them.
How Our Property Finder Service Works
- We commence our process with obtaining a clear understanding of your property needs via a series of consultations that include identifying an appropriate area.
- We assist in drawing up a short-list of suitable properties and arrange an appropriate viewing schedule – which we accompany you on. We ensure we show you not just the house but the area, amenities and local lifestyle.
- Experience and access to market information are vital in us helping you to decide what offer you make price wise. Any offer to purchase is also vetted with our experts and attorneys to ensure that it contains all relevant terms and conditions.
- We continue to assist you throughout the buying process until a successful move into your new property has taken place.
