Property Sourcing

Investment Property

We have well established contacts nationwide as well as relationships with many property professionals and organisations which enables us to find and buy properties efficiently and at attractive prices. Examples of sources that we use are:

Estate Agents

Auction houses


House builders part exchange properties
Mortgage lenders reposesssions

Other investors

Private sellers

We can always combine our property sourcing with a wide range of other services designed to provide a complete package to the purchaser.


Family homes

MCS can provide invaluable assistance to buyers looking for a specific type of property in any location within England or Wales. This service is often of benefit to buyers from overseas or outside the local area, or for those faced with a wide variety of choice and little time to spare. We would typically begin this process with a scoping meeting to fully understand the clients needs and requirements, then quickly follow this up by liaising with local estate agents, private sellers or other sources within the chosen area. We carry out extensive research to establish realistic price guidelines and to eliminate overpriced or unsuitable properties. Once we have narrowed the search to a small selection we would arrange to visit each potential property and provide a report to the client. Once a final selection is made we remain available to assist with all negotiations and ensure a successful completion.

Please ensure that you are aware of the latest HMRC stamp duty rates for buyers, including the current 3% surcharge on second homes.
