If the Buyer does not live in Barcelona, they would need to travel here to visit, sometimes several times, the selected properties until the best candidate has been identified.
Regardless of where the Buyer lives, searching for the right property, making the appointments, organizing the visits, and going to the viewings takes a lot of time, and time often IS money.
With a REPS, a visit to Barcelona is organized only when a property that best matches the Buyer´s criteria is selected, in order to evaluate and validate this final choice. The REPS will arrange such a visit and accompany the Buyer.
Even if the Buyer is glad to travel to Barcelona regularly, we can testify that looking for a property can become a very demanding experience. By having a REPS who attends all steps on behalf of the Buyer, you will be reassured that the search progresses in the best possible conditions, taking full advantage of the knowledge and competences of the REPS.
Indeed, the Buyer will be able to concentrate solely, objectively and undistractedly, on the analysis of the shortlisted properties and, finally, with minimal stress on making their final decision. Most people may actually prefer to attend a few relevant visits, and, meanwhile, enjoy their time in this beautiful city rather than chasing agents and coordinating appointments.
There are also many aspects that must be considered when purchasing a property. Some are legal, other may relate to technical and structural elements in the property or by extension in the building.
A REPS who knows what to look at, what to inspect, and which questions to ask when visiting a property in this market, environment, areas, etc., will ensure that there are no issues arising at the last moment, which can be at the time of the purchase, when the Buyer has already invested some money, or even much later, and may lead to significant future expenses.
And last but not least: good properties sell quickly. A good opportunity, whether in terms of price, location, or features, disappears from the market within days.
Not being able to arrange a quick visit for logistic reasons, may result in losing a very good purchase. A REPS is always able to visit quickly and advise the Buyer to move fast, if needed.
