London Calling!

The Saffronart Team on buying property in London.

London: Mews? Maisonettes? Mansion Blocks? Leaseholds? Freeholds? Mayfair apartments? Kensington penthouses? Looking for a house in London requires a good degree of patience and perseverance, but once you get hold of your dream house, the satisfaction is endless!

London is a magnet for the world’s wealth and due to the large number of people wanting to live in London, the competition for good London properties is high for the good catches, and the real estate agents are not always on ones side. In fact, in the UK the estate agents work for the seller rather than the buyer. So, no matter how hard one tries to specify ones essential requirements for a London property, one will be shown houses that do not match at all ones original ideas (estate agents can only show you a small percentage of houses) and until the end you are not sure the house will be yours. Also, the estate agents’ task is to sell the property to any client and not to help the buyer find one.

However, having said that, do not give up because here is where Saffronart Prime London comes to the buyer’s aid! Whether you are house hunting in London, would like an idea of London property prices, or simply curious to learn more about the London property market, Prime London is the guide and service for you.

Saffronart will accompany and help the buyer throughout the entire process, from looking for the house to finding a decorator, and will never leave the buyer to fend for himself.  Saffronart understands that various people have different needs depending on age, employment and so forth, and also that everyone wants and expects the best value for their money. Thus, Saffronart services are very personal and adaptable to suit every individual client. After helping find the property, Saffronart, on the buyer’s request can provide a team of lawyers, surveyors, and financing to ease the bureaucratic side of things. Once this is completed, it is time to think about how to decorate and maintain the property, and Saffronart can help suggest decorators too.

Saffronart looks forward to helping home-seekers in their quest for their dream house and making sure the entire process happens smoothly.
