Buying Your New Home

Prado purchasing is a pragmatic thing. We don’t think charming you into a sale is a job done. We make sure you have the complete picture about the homes on our books. Nasty surprises once you’ve committed to buy are precisely what we strive to avoid – so we’ll always be up front about potential snags. We want to sell you a property – not a problem.

Property details – and cards – will always be face up on the table.

Selling Your Home

The best possible price is always top of the list for a seller – but that’s not all that counts. Sometimes speed will be very important to you, but not every time. We have had sellers who cannot be rushed, and we are careful not to set these people up with a buyer who’s desperate to move in at teatime yesterday.

In the complex world of property chains, like comedy, timing is everything.

Anyone who’s ever moved house will know it’s an intensely personal experience. One size really doesn’t fit all. It’s crucial to us that we fully understand your needs and build a service around them.

So once we’ve got what makes you tick and what makes you twitch, we’ll set about matchmaking you to the right buyer. Similarly, we’ll know a lot about them too; what position they’re in financially, what timescale they’re working to, how well they fit.

It’s not something much talked about, but we know many sellers are concerned, when relinquishing an old home, about who will move in after them. Sometimes leaving neighbours can be as much of a wrench as leaving a much loved family house – and decisions between competing purchasers have been swayed by this as much as the offer on the table.

If we can see a purchaser is not the right fit for you, we won’t bring them round. Time is precious; we won’t waste yours.

Heaven Sent Rent

Why let?

'I’m relocating for a new job… but I don’t want to sell my place just yet.’

‘We’re moving abroad but we’ll always want to keep one foot in Blighty.’

‘We think a portfolio of properties we can let out is a way to secure our retirement.’

‘We’re buying for our son, who’s coming to university here. We’re going to let it to him and his friends when they leave halls and then keep it on as an investment.’

There are all kinds of good reasons for letting your property – and the British renting sector absolutely depends on good private landlords. If you want to be one, we’re pleased to help you make it happen.

Our mission for our landlords is to:

  • Find you a good, reliable tenant
  • Manage the day to day problems – from a faulty boiler to a broken window latch – so you don’t have to
  • Ensure rent is always paid on time
  • Leave you comfortable and confident that your investment is paying off
