Mr Beak, Lydalls


In May of last year, we assisted Mr Beak in buying an investment property near Didcot, Oxfordshire. He was hoping to make a cash purchase of a 3-bedroom bungalow, but it was unclear as to how much repair work was going to be required to bring the building to a re-saleable condition.

Understanding the cost of repairs is an essential part of calculating the viability of a cash investment, as the sale price has to reflect both the cost of improvements and the money spent finding and investigating the property. To help him make his decision, Mr Beak asked Daily Move to carry out an accurate valuation of the building.

With all of our clients, we take the time to understand the most important factors in their sale or purchase. In this case, it meant that we could respond to Mr Beak’s desire for a quick decision and would look at the property as an investment, rather than a potential home.

We sent a surveyor to attend the property as soon as possible and focus on the aspects of the property with the most potential value. The final valuation report was turned around within 10 days and helped to eliminate much of the unknown factors of the investment, assuring Mr Beak that the required works would not be too costly and allowing him to confidently proceed with his investment.

Mr Beak has been a returning client for some time and we hope to see him again, once he has completed his project in Didcot, Oxfordshire.
