A property finder's method

Finding your dream home might be less evident as it sounds, most certainly if you’re looking to acquire a piece of paradise abroad. You’re not the only one who prefers to outsource the search of an ideal home and there is a lot of evident reasons to do so that we explain here.

Everything starts by listing the things you would and would not like your new home to be, criteria that are absolutely necessary and things that would be a plus… but this is just the beginning. As soon as we have a clear view of what you are looking for, we take over and find your ideal home!

Our full process is explained below

1. Intake-meeting

1. Intake-meeting

This first encounter enables us to get to know each other. It's important you trust us to find your home, and for us to really get to know you. We listen to your life-story, the things you like and those you don't... all information adds a piece to the puzzle and sheds a light on what might be the ideal home for you. We don't have a catalogue to choose from, we find a house that really fits you!

2. Contract

2. Contract

For us to fully commit to finding your dream home we need to have a clear contract, stating what we can and cannot do, listing the criteria above and setting a timeframe for our search. It's also a pledge of trust on your behalf to only work with us during this period. Once this document is signed, a 14-day-period of cancellation rights start to count after which we can begin to look for the house of your dreams! During this time we validate your financing plans to make sure we have a file that's ready-to-go if we find something you like!

3. Quest

Every day, we analyse the private and professional real estate market in search of properties that fit your criteria. We contact sellers and discuss the specifics of interesting listings. We set up meetings for houses that correspond to at least 80% of what you're looking for!

4. Primary visits

4. Primary visits

The first time we visit a property is to get a better feeling of what the listing is about. We listen to the seller and read between the lines of what het is saying. We take the time to properly analyse the benefits and negative points of the listing and estimate the property as well as the work needed to get it modernised. This all goes in a detailed text-photo-and-video-report that enables you to make a buy-decision.

5. Feedback moments

5. Feedback moments

We regularly take the time to debrief our findings with you. That way you know how the market is behaving, what we are doing, and we can adjust our methods or your criteria if needed. It's not rare to change opinions when you saw some properties you might want to add or remove criteria to the list, we set up beforehand If you're interested in a listing, we discuss the next steps, check all the paperwork is in order and start negotiating on your behalf.

6. Second visit

The real estate market doesn't sleep and good deals expire rapidly. Some flexibility is needed if you want to make a listing is yours. If you're not convinced by our report and would like to visit in order to make a decision, we will arrange a nice trip for you to come and see the property for yourself, visiting the area on the downtime.

7. Compromis de vente

We stand by our customers during price negotiations. Our knowledge of the area as well as previous listings enable us to get you a better deal you might get on your own. Once the verbal agreement is done, we make sure all the paperwork is done right and are right by your side at the notary's. With the right proxy we can even sign for you!

8. Settle-in

If you wish, we can even help you set up your utility contracts: water, electricity, fuel, tv, internet,... We can even arrange for your house to be furnished by the time you arrive! All you have to do is pack your bags, get over here and put your toes in the water of your new pool!
