Stacks Property Finders

House hunting in Devon? Don't make a move until you've got the gen from Stacks Property Finders! Here's your fast-track to finding that forever home in the region.

Thinking of upping sticks? There’s never been a more appealing time to escape the rat race and live the Devon dream, whether you’re thinking of going freelance, got pre-schoolers soon to start big school or you’re keen to make the move before you’re priced out of the market.

Take my advice and get Ed and Nick of Stacks Devon on speed dial. They have their fingers on the pulse of what’s on the market (sometimes before it’s on the market) thanks to a bulging little black book of agents and insider know-how. I wished I’d known them when I moved here from the south-east as I know only too well how fantasy house-hunting on Rightmove is very different from the reality of juggling full-time work, a four year-old and a ‘helpful’ husband while trying to find a dream pad 200 miles away.

Here’s how it works: once you’ve paid your retainer, and worked out which area you’re interested in you’ll get a Zoom call to find out what you want. Having come up with an initial hit-list and worked out the area, they whittle it down by visiting and videoing properties in which you’re interested, finally narrowing it down for your viewings. They’ll even help you find somewhere to stay if you have to travel any distance to do so.

Ed is really easy to work with, intuitive and clever, what’s more he knows exactly what you’re going through as he did it with his own family, moving from London to Totnes. Close family links with the South Hams, plus over 10 years in the property buying and letting biz means his  advice is always on the money and that’s important as it’s Ed who will be holding your hand right through the process, from sale negotiations, through the conveyancing and right to the moment you’re handed the key and get to pop that cork.

If your dream home is available in his part of the county Nick will find it for you, but his service is not just about keeping close to selling agents to find out what they have been out to value, local intel can lead to tip offs about great houses too. If you’re looking for a location with an active community of like-minded people, the right schools, or need advice on whether a property is overpriced or a bargain he can steer you in the right direction and most importantly help to identify any potential pitfalls before you get too far down the line.

Itching to make that move? Read Ed and Nick’s tips on Moving to Devon, then give them a bell – Ed:01803 732128 or 07711 724939/Nick:07977 490574. That call could remove much of the house-hunting headache (and potential heartache) and kickstart a whole new life in the West Country. And that’s got to be worth picking up the phone for.
