What is a real estate personal shopper?

How a Service with a Real Estate Personal Shopper Works

  1. Initial consultation: Begin by scheduling an initial consultation. During this meeting, you will discuss your property needs, preferences, budget, and any specific requirements you may have. This consultation allows us to understand your goals and tailor our services accordingly.

  2. Property search and selection: Based on the information gathered during the consultation, we will conduct a comprehensive search for properties that align with your criteria. We will utilize our expertise, market knowledge, and network to identify suitable options, including both listed and off-market properties.

  3. Property viewings: Once potential properties are identified, the personal shopper will arrange viewings at your convenience. We  will accompany you to the property viewings, providing insights, answering your questions, and offering professional guidance throughout the process. If you are unable to attend viewings, we can assist by conducting the viewings on your behalf, record a video for you, or arrange a video call to bring you up to speed.

  4. Negotiation and offer: When you find a property that meets your requirements, the personal shopper will assist you in formulating a competitive offer. We will secure favorable terms and conditions on your behalf. Our goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for you as the buyer.

  5. Due diligence and paperwork: After your offer is accepted, the personal shopper will guide you through the due diligence process. This may include coordinate and conducting property inspections, coordinating with lawyers or notaries, and ensuring that all necessary paperwork is properly prepared and executed.

  6. Additional services (optional): If desired, the personal shopper can assist you with additional services such as property reform, interior design consultations, maintenance, management arrangements. These services can be tailored to your specific needs and preferences, enhancing the overall experience and ensuring a seamless transition into your new property.

  7. Closing and post-purchase support: Once all the necessary steps are completed, the personal shopper will facilitate the closing of the transaction. We will ensure that the transfer of ownership is smooth and assist with any post-purchase requirements or support you may need.

Is it necessary to hire a personal shopper if I can search for properties online?

Our expertise in negotiations and navigating the buying process can also lead to better outcomes and a smoother transaction.

We'll give you a shortlist of properties to consider, and can even facilitate a video call or send you videos if you're unable to attend property viewings in person. Once you've made your choice, we'll schedule a viewing to showcase all the features and benefits of the property.

What is the difference between a real estate personal shopper and a real estate agent buyer?

A real estate personal shopper focuses on the buyer's needs and preferences. They work exclusively on behalf of the buyer to find the right properties and negotiate the best deals.A personal shopper conducts a personalized and comprehensive property search tailored to the buyer's specific requirements, have access to off-market properties and utilize their network and market knowledge to find unique opportunities.

On the other hand, a real estate agent buyer typically represents the seller's interests and aims to sell properties for their clients. A real estate agent buyer generally focuses on properties listed on the market and may have limitations based on the inventory available through their brokerage.

While personal shoppers primarily assist with property search and purchasing, some may also offer additional services such as property management or post-purchase support. Real estate agent buyers tend to focus on the transaction itself and may not provide extensive post-purchase services.
