The Buyers Edge bespoke data packages cannot be found anywhere else
A professional service with industry leading technology
Buyers Edge is the only UK property platform dedicated solely to the home buyer. In contrast to other major property markets, typically in the UK, a seller will use an estate agent and a buyer will represent themselves. Buyers Edge and their interests are completely aligned to the home buyer, meaning unlike estate agents we do not have any conflicts of interest.
Estate agents who work for and have a financial interest in the seller can appear to represent the buyer’s best interests, as they deal with both parties, but they are solely working to establish the best result, price and terms for their vendor. Many people do not identify this conflict of interest, choose to ignore it or challenge it by themselves.
Buyers Edge offer an alternative solution for the home buyer with competitively priced bespoke packages tailored around client’s needs; Buyers Edge are also the founders of the new and pioneering property data packages which provide upfront property information for the UK home buyer before they purchase a property.
The Buyers Edge data packages 'pull' information from renowned and respected companies that specialise and lead the way in their markets.
The data is driven from the same sources that leading Banks, Insurance companies, Solicitors and Surveyors use to make decisions about your property purchase behind the scenes.
A non-exhaustive list of the sources that Buyers Edge obtain the data from include The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, Land Registry, The Royal Mail, GOV.UK, Zoopla, CACI, Registers of Scotland and Bluesky International.
Some of the organisations that rely on the same data sources Buyers Edge pull from include some well know establishments such as the Bank of England, British Land, Nationwide as well as 7 other of the top 10 banks, Aviva amongst many of the other UK’s leading insurers, The Department for Communities and Local Government alongside various local authorities such as the City of Westminster. The list is massive, but the point is short, the data can be relied upon.
Buyer’s Edge are also able to offer traditional buying agency services with the guarantee of a professional service. Buyers Edge are fully insured members of the Property Redress Scheme, registered and supervised by HMRC in respect to anti-Money laundering.
As a first time buyer I felt I needed a little more than the estate agents opinion, I used the swift spot check to consult on the property that I had found and also the negotiation service. Buyers Edge were clear, fair and I liked the fact they were working only for myself.
Mr Purkis, London
The data packages Buyers Edge have put together have been needed for a long time in the market. I found them hugely helpful to understand the pros and cons of my property and also enjoyed using the discounts that Buyers Edge's partners give you.
Mrs Santos, Sunningdale
I have experience buying properties, but always wondered what value a buying agency might bring me. The data and consultancy that Buyers Edge provided me is truly unique, advanced and is able to create a different way of thinking around property purchases.
Mrs Carpenter, London
I came across Buyers Edge only after I had found my property and decided to use their negotiation only service, it is very fairly priced and the incentive is for Buyers Edge to save as much as possible, Buyers Edge successfully saved me £18,000 from the asking price.
Mr Ford, Cheltenham
I have always wondered why upfront property information is not available before financially committing to the purchase. I can only describe Buyers Edge's invention as groundbreaking and extremely valuable, the data in the data packages is incredible.
Mr Spear, London
I retrospectively wished I had purchased one of Buyers Edge’s data packages as I entered into a problematic transaction. Fortunately Buyers Edge saved the transaction by directing me to a specialist insurance broker who was able to give me a very fair solution.
Mr Abbasi, Glasgow
As a property investor I have various different methods of identifying good investment potential, well this is what I thought until I discovered Buyers Edge's new technology to discover investment potential.
Mr Adams, Reading
I purchased the E-Valuation to make a negotiation strategy. The information that is displayed is very innovative, to know if the agent was sure of their valuation and to understand the potential financial situation of the seller paid dividends.
Mrs West, London
The property world is new to me but I am very aware of the conflict of interest estates agents have. I used the negotiation and sales completion service, the value given throughout was apparent from the start, I would highly recommend.
Mr Pritchard, London
I decided to purchase Buyers Edge's Instant survey. The data that is provided is hugely valuable and significant. Buyers Edge also give advice on the results in the report. I felt massively confident going ahead with my property.
Mr Rowley, Bath
I absolutely love how you can mix and match the different services. I enjoy browsing for property myself so I purchased the Instant Survey, which gave me piece of mind and instructed Buyers Edge to negotiate on my behalf. The combination was a massive success.
Mrs Warwick, Oxford
After a bad experience buying a property previously I used Buyers Edge's Sales Completion service. Buyers Edge communicated clearly, gave advice and chased on my behalf, they did much more than I anticipated, I felt confident throughout having them by my side and also felt I was getting true value for money.
Mr Hamilton, Kingston
The Swift Spot Check service is excellent value for money, I only used it for piece of mind that the property I wanted to offer on was going to make a good home and investment. I had a few questions which were answered but I also received a wealth of detail that was not expected and also really helped me decide how and what to offer. I successfully completed 10 weeks later.
Ms. Arnold, Milton Keynes
After having a sale fall through it became clear that Estate Agents don't generally seem to care or offer much of a service to people that view their properties. For £500 it seemed very worth while instructing Buyers Edge to act as a consultancy for me as I had lost way over £500 on the previous sale falling through. There is a huge amount of information and help available in this service and it actually helped me far more then anticipated.
