Our 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. In a nutshell our 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 buyers 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, chose 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 our clients 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 you buy.
Our cutting edge data packages 'pull' information from renowned and respected companies that specialise and lead the way in their markets.
Our 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 we obtain our data from include The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, Land Registry, CLS, The Royal Mail, GOV.UK, Zoopla, CACI, Registers of Scotland, Bluesky International.
Some of the organisations that rely on the same data sources we 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, our data is reliable and can be relied upon.
Buyer’s Edge are also able to offer traditional buying agency services with the guarantee of a professional service. We 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 vendor has a mortgage on the property and their financial situation 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.
Mr Ellis, Bristol
Buyers Edge have partnered with big property brands in order to provide value for money for our customers.
Our partners understand the value, accuracy and reliability of our data and services, therefore our partners offer Buyers Edge’s customers significant discounts which are exclusive to our clients.
Our partners have been rigorously selected to be aligned to Buyers Edge’s business model – offering value for money with high levels of customer service and expert property industry knowledge, they are also known to Buyers Edge and understand our excellent communicative methods which help speed the buying process up and remove some of the complexity from it. With reputable and established brands including Radcliffe & Newlands Independent Mortgage brokers (a free service where the lender pays the brokerage commission not the client), A-Plan Insurance (independent specialist insurance broker), The Partnership – award winning property solicitors; using any of our partners will provide excellent value for money and service levels. Buyers Edge have been on the receiving end of budget choices time and time again. From cheap Solicitors to unfit insurance policies with a cheap price tag we promote our partners as much as possible because they are worth every £ spent, it can make a huge difference to the sales completion process. Whilst it is not essential to use our partners, you are free to use whoever you like, but if we can offer one piece of advice it is to do your due diligence around the companies you select to use, read reviews and for the sake of a few hundred pounds do not take the risk using a budget solicitor, it will end up costing you more than the money you saved! And If you chose not to use our services we can still highly recommend our partners.
Buyers Edge believe in complete transparency; our partners do pay Buyers Edge a referral fee, it is no secret in the industry and all companies that recommend other companies should make it clear they will be receiving a commission for doing so, it’s normal practice in the market. With this transparency and understanding our clients are free to use whoever they like, our service to you will not change. What sets Buyers Edge aside is we make this clear and we know moving home or buying property is an expensive process, so some of the referral fees we receive we have managed to negotiate with our partners and arrange for a significant portion of this to be given back to our clients, for example, if you insure your property with our recommendation to A-Plan, A-Plan will give you a £25 introductory discount! It’s not a lot, but we try to add value and transparency in everything that we do! In the UK we are very familiar with the saying ‘every little helps’.
