Advice to first time buyers

Advice to first time buyers in the current property market...

The Isle of Man property market has had a very heated bubble, and there are tell tales that things are cooling down a bit in this third quarter. If you are a first time buyer wishing to enter the property market, there are a number of things we advise you do prior to carrying out viewings;

  1. Have your deposit saved.
  2. Have your mortgage advisor/lender with agreed provisional terms.
  3. Obtain a number of quotes from your preferred Advocates and agree on one.
  4. Shortlist your favourite properties to view.
  5. Once you have found the best option that fits your criteria, offer on it and don’t hesitate or you could lose out!

Don't just take our word for it.

We have been very impressed with the service we’ve received from everyone at Harmony Homes. Friendly and professional and very knowledgeable about the local market, with prompt and reliable communication. A breath of fresh air in terms of our previous experiences of dealing with the property market. I would highly recommend them for one’s house sale or purchase.

I have used Harmony Homes on several occasions and have always found them to be friendly and helpful. I have used them for rentals as a landlord and have recently used them to sell a house. At each time they have been able to carry out the sale or let quickly and without  trouble.

Peter H, Landlord/Vendor

Would like to recommend Harmony Homes Estate agents, the staff are so lovely everyone that we have spoken to is polite and helpful, all feedback is swift and constructive. Selling a house is a stressful time but at least dealing with pleasant staff makes it easier.

Our experience with Harmony Homes has been overwhelmingly positive. Prompt and courteous attention coupled with useful insights and clear advice on local property market trends have helped us get to where we want to be with our property and rental portfolio.

Chris M, Vendor

My family and I recently sold our property through Harmony Homes. And we received a totally professional service from the start till completion. And it was during the pandemic so lockdowns which caused delays. However, contact continued throughout so there was never a break down in communication from Harmony Homes during a very challenging time to be selling a house. I would recommend them 100%. Great service from approachable dedicated staff.

Jayne B, Vendor

Diane and the team at Harmony Homes were fantastic from start to finish. They sold our house straight away and found us our perfect home to purchase. I would highly recommend anyone to list their property with Harmony Homes.
