Experiences of customers who have believed in Great Estate

How does Property Finder (Dedicated Property Search service) work?

Once the Dedicated Property Search assignment is undersigned, the work entails three phases:
-firstly, the search phase,
-secondly, the viewing/assessment phase
-lastly the buying process.
  • Dedicated search phase
    The entrusted Great Estate expert will listen and deeply comprehend the requirements and tastes of the client; (for instance the detection of the most appropriate location or areas of interest). The same expert will be capable of advicing the client who has not expressed a clear preference about this. Once the client’s needs, preferences and requirements are recorded and understood, the agent carries out a property search in order to find potentially interesting properties, within the portfolio of Great Estate but also of the Real Estate agents located in the areas of interest, as well as through property websites, magazines and networking. The agent will select a few properties, sending to the client a detailed report on each one, including photographs and relevant information. The agent will then arrange all the viewings.
  • Viewing phase and assessment
    A first visit to all the selected properties is carried out with the client. After a further screening, the client normally makes a second viewing to the properties deemed more suitable. In this phase the expert could already make a professional valuation of the estate and a first assessment of the works and improvements that could be carried out in the property.
  • Purchase phase
    Once the right property is selected, the agent draws up a purchase offer, in which the purchase terms and the price are agreed together with the client. Although Great Estate carries out a first analysis on each property of its portfolio beforehand, (inspecting both the actual state of the property and the compliance of the property with building codes and land registry, checks on the titles, mortgages, liens etc..), the client has the right to subject the offer to the positive outcome of a due diligence report. This latter includes all the necessary checks carried out by an independent and qualified technician (at care and expense of the buyer). The additional legal, technical or tax advisory required at this stage by the client can be performed by the capable professionals we have selected, at convenient and transparent tariffs. The client is followed step by step by the dedicated consultant till the final completion deed; even after that, we are always willing to help and to properly address the client’s needs through our network of professionals.

What are the costs?

Property Finder (Dedicated Property Search service) is free of charge, being a mutual trust demonstration between the client and the agency: the buyer is advantaged in having only one professional as referent, while the company will have the certainty to work in complete tranquility and to have time to select the best options for the client.
