Why use a property finder for your Mallorca property search?

Sep 20, 2019 | News and articles

When buying a property overseas, the benefits of using a property finder are magnified. While buying overseas need not necessarily be complicated, there are practical hurdles to overcome that are not apparent at home. 

Property Finders, or Property Search Agents, are companies or individuals representing a buyer in a property transaction. The term is fairly common in the UK, although the convention is still for buyers to work directly through estate agents. Property finders are more frequently used by companies looking for corporate lets.

However, when buying a property overseas, the benefits of using a property finder are magnified. While buying overseas need not necessarily be complicated, there are practical hurdles to overcome that are not apparent at home. Unless you have the flexibility to visit regularly, for enough time to assess locations and investigate property options at first hand, you’ll be doing much of this remotely. While the internet greatly facilitates aspects of this, information provided can also be somewhat misleading. It may also be the case that your underlying knowledge of locations, prices and how the market works, is not as deep as it would be at home. The whole process can become somewhat challenging and uncertain.

Mallorca Property Partners

We set up MPP to offer buyers an experienced partner on the ground, to assist in choosing locations and ensure all the right property options are covered. This would provide a focus, efficiencies and quality of choice otherwise difficult for buyers to achieve. We would compliment this with guidance in negotiations and throughout the buying process. And we would provide a broad range of information, advice and contacts relating to practical and lifestyle considerations. All intended to see our clients start off on the front foot in their new property. 

Rather than charge for our service, we worked out an arrangement with the estate agents that we work with. A success based formula that would mean we were adding value to the mix at no extra cost to the buyer. 

The model we established has now been operating successfully for nearly 20 years. The best reference I can offer to our success in delivering such benefits is our our clients themselves. The comments on our reviews and testimonials page are all genuine and represent clients from holiday home buyers, to people relocating permanently to Mallorca, to professional investors.  For more as to how our service works and the benefits it offers, please see MPP – more than just property finders.
