Buy a home

We're driven to make your buying experience as smooth as possible.

Let's talk about buying a property with Castle Estates...

Clear communication is our priority, ensuring that you're always in the loop and connected to everyone involved in the property chain. This proactive approach keeps the process moving smoothly, allowing you to acquire your new home with ease.

Determine your preferences and requirements

Before you start your property search, it's essential to clearly define your requirements and preferences. Consider factors like the size of your growing family, the number of bedrooms you need, the importance of additional features like toilets or en-suite bathrooms, and your energy efficiency priorities. Don't forget to think about your preferred garden size and establish a realistic budget.

Make informed decisions

If you need guidance on obtaining a mortgage approval or if you're a first-time buyer seeking government assistance, we're here to provide unbiased advice. We want to ensure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions.

When it comes to property viewings, we recommend distinguishing between critical must-have features and desirable ones. This will make the viewing experience more enjoyable and focused.

We’ll navigate you through the process

If you're selling a property while looking to buy, it's advisable to have a sale agreed on your current property before making an offer on a new one. However, if you're a first-time buyer, this requirement may not apply to you, and you could be eligible for government assistance specifically designed for first-time buyers. We'll provide information on the available options and help you navigate this process smoothly.

Be open minded

During the viewing it's important to keep an open mind while remaining equally critical. As an example, the property's decor might not align perfectly with your taste, but remember – most things can be altered or improved. Focus on identifying signs of quality and potential, and don't hesitate to ask questions about the maintenance history. It's also a good idea to pay close attention to the heating system and, if possible, take a look at neighbouring properties and gardens.

What happens when you decide to make an offer? 

We're here to make sure your purchase (and sale) go off without a hitch. We'll play matchmaker between you and the seller, keeping you informed and confident throughout the process. We'll communicate with other agents in the chain to ensure everyone's on track for the grand finale – exchange and completion. Your solicitor will be handling the legal nitty-gritty by this point, and you'll be in constant communication with them. If any hiccups come along, rest assured we'll swoop in and seek to resolve everything.
