Hi, my name is Gavin Brazg and I'm the editor here at what many of our readers have kindly referred to as "The Online Bible for Property Sellers".
If you're moving home we're going to share with you all the
information, tips and insider secrets the property world
does not want you to know!
What We Do
We're here to give you straight talking expert advice on:
Who Are We
This site is written and contributed to by property professionals from inside the UK House Building Industry.
That's right, we're developers - hated by all for our unwavering pursuit of profit and demonic need to concrete over the UK's greenbelt.
You may well wonder why we (as opposed to estate agents) are best equipped to advise you on the subject of selling property?
Surely our expertise lies in knowing how to buy land, put together development proposals, navigate the planning process and build identikit housing estates?
This is all true but it misses the one key point that our core goal (like yours) is to sell property for the highest possible price!
Just like you we also have to deal with flaky buyers, shoddy estate agents, slow solicitors and inept mortgage brokers.
The difference is, we do it on a daily basis and as such have become masters of managing the process.
Why We've Created this Resouce
There are three reasons:
1. Fear of recession.
Nothing puts dread in to the heart of the House Building Industry more.
We can do nothing to influence international economics, national economics or inept governments.
All we can do is pass on our knowledge, help homeowners to make their properties more saleable and in turn do our bit to help keep the UK housing market liquid.
2. Our concern over the low quality of service provided by many professionals in the property industry.
We believe in the merit of free markets and we relate strongly to the private homeowner trying to make the most profit possible from the sale of their asset.
Unfortunately in the UK there is massive distrust of the professional advisors that are meant to help you achieve this.
We've been dealing with estate agents, property lawyers and other industry "professionals" for longer than we care to mention.
We've seen how the general public is taken advantage of when buying and selling property and we've witnessed firsthand a lot of unnecessary heartache and financial loss.
3. Our concern over the severe lack of reliable, impartial and effective property advice available to UK home movers.
Most of what you'll find in the general media panders to (or is provided by) estate agents and other vested interests - It has to!
Media channels such as newspapers and property portals earn huge advertising revenue from the Estate Agency Industry.
They'd be stupid not to place the needs of these advertisers ahead of yours.
Here at TheAdvisory.co.uk we're privately funded and thankfully don't have such constraints.
We're free to pass on to you all our insider knowledge (no matter who that upsets), do so gladly and have been finding it immensely gratifying being able to help private homeowners make the most of their property sales.
Wishing you every success with your sale,
