If you are thinking of moving, buying your first home, considering investing, or downsizing, please contact one of our sales team to chat about what to do when buying a home. It's a daunting process, so let us help you on your search, we would love to hear from you. 

Whats first - get in contact with a mortgage person to find out affordability. 


If you haven't already got a mortgage in place, your next step is to find one - or make sure you have the money ready.

Making an Offer 

It's always good to ask the estate/selling agent a few questions, find out how long a property has been on the market and if the vendor will negotiate. 

Accepted offer 

Are you unsure as to the next step - please contact one of Alexander Reid & Frazer Sales team for advice. 

Speak to your solicitor or conveyancer once they're happy with the legal aspects of the property, and you have the finance in place, you can exchange contracts.

Exchange of contracts

When you exchange, you may have to pay a deposit of 10% of the agreed sale price. You complete when the rest of the money is transferred to the seller - then you can move in.


Collect keys from the seller's estate agent and instruct your removal firm.
