BATH PROPERTY MARKET
Bath has a high number of estate agent firms who cover the city and it’s surrounding countryside and their primary focus is to represent property sellers who pay their fees. With estate agents fees derived from sellers it means that the majority of estate agents are proactive in terms of working with sellers but only reactive in terms of working with buyers. On this basis it’s rare to find an estate agent who maintains an extensive list of pre-qualified buyers.
ESTABLISHED OFF MARKET OPPORTUNITES
With unique investment and family properties being in such high demand in Bath an established “off market” exists, whereby sellers of properties will instruct agents to go off market and not list properties on their websites or property website portals. The current political climate has also served to encourage this practice further. If you are therefore not recognized as an existing buyer or seller of properties in Bath and not “known” or physically on the ground conducting your own search then it’s unlikely that you will be able to access opportunities.
