Blackpool is host to many different property agents, some of who specialise in completely different areas of expertise for instance...
Property Sales at our Blackpool Estate Agents.
Some companies on the Fylde Coast only specialise in property sales. This is the process in which they sell properties on behalf of their clients and take a percentage of the sale price once a sale has been agreed and completed. (The standard fee is usually between 1%-3%)
Rental properties in Blackpool
Rental agents focus entirely on renting out properties on behalf of their clients i.e Landlords.
Rental estate agencies will then try and promote the property to attract new some new tenants. The agent will normally advertise the property as well as vet any new applicants along the way.
Some landlords prefer the agent to manage the property once they have found a tenant, this is called "fully managed" This means the agent will charge up to 15% per month to take care of the property and the tenant.
Commercial Estate Agents
Some agencies only provide commercial properties. This is where you will go if you want to rent out some commercial space or if you have property to let.
These properties include office space, storage space and more often than not, they will also rent out shops too.
Commercial property in Blackpool is available from as little as £80 per month right up to £9000 per month in some areas.
The auction house is the best place to go if you want a really good deal. They usually offer low cost property for sale that needs to be sold fast. More often than not, auction properties have been repossessed from previous home owners and are getting sold off quickly so the mortgage lender can recoup some of the money back.
Although the auction house can seem like a desirable place to get on the property ladder, there can be a lot of risk involved if you don't do your homework.
Mortgage Lenders and Brokers in Blackpool
Some property experts also provide help and advice on how to get a mortgage. They usually have good relations with mortgage advisors and in some cases they have mortgage brokers in house. This can be an excellent way to speed up the process and cut out a third party especially if you need to move house fast.
