Why use a buying agent?
Whether buying a home or making an investment, property is often the biggest capital expenditure you will make in your life. We think that having a team whose job it is to watch the market every day, helping you at every step is crucial in helping you make the right decision.
Why use Palace Gate?
Palace Gate is an independent firm that has been operating in Prime Central London since 1989. We know the market and all its players very well. Our combined years of experience twinned with being an independent firm means we are able to give each client the due care and attention required.
What value do you bring?
As buying agents we will hear about new opportunities long before they come to market. In a sector where speed and timing is key we can ensure you get through the door first. Knowing the market as well as well do, we are often able to negotiate the best possible price and terms for our clients.
Can you help with lease extensions, project management, getting a mortgage and tax advice?
Having been in the industry since 1989, we have accumulated a very extensive black book of contacts which we share with our clients. We know that buying a property isn’t as simple as finding the right one and therefore manage each and every aspect of the buying process from the start.
What is your charging structure?
We charge an initial retainer fee and then a success only commission of the eventually agreed purchase price.
How long does the buying process take?
This varies from client to client. We have acted for clients who have bought the first thing they saw whereas others have taken two and a half years. We put in as much time as it takes.
What else do you offer?
Our service doesn’t just stop once we have completed on your property. We manage property ownership and all the headaches and hassle associated with it. We also offer all our clients 20 hours of lifestyle services to help you settle in faster. Please look at the FAQ section of our lifestyle service.
