Home Search – Purchase

Find your dream home with Dovetail’s property finder service

Our property finders have long-standing relationships with local estate agents and access to off-market properties. Dovetail’s clients engage us to save them time and money while relieving much of the stress involved with the purchase process. We expect to be able to find unique properties.

Our house buying agents work solely for the buyer

Estate agents work solely on behalf of the vendor – we work solely on behalf of the purchaser. We are independent of the estate agents, yet they work closely with us because we bring them applicants with serious intent to purchase. We find properties through our contacts with estate agents, private vendors and by word of mouth.

A personalised home finders service in London, Surrey and Sussex

We provide a tailor-made service with an initial meeting, wherever possible in person, to fully understand your property search brief. We propose different neighbourhoods and conduct orientation tours to help familiarise you with the area.

Accompanied viewings to discover your ideal property

All potential properties are previewed to assess how closely they match the client brief before proposing a client accompanied viewing. Following each accompanied viewing we spend time with you to evaluate the merits of each.

Let Dovetail manage your search, offer, negotiation and purchase

We manage the entire search, negotiation and purchase process. We can suggest solicitors, architects, builders and decorators where required.

Our property search fee

We request a £750 registration fee to work on your property search for an initial 6 months. This is deducted from our success fee (a percentage of the purchase price or 15% of the negotiated saving, whichever is the greater) payable upon exchange of contracts.
