Everyone wants to buy their own home no matter where they live in the world. While there are some common steps when buying a home on either side of the proverbial pond, there are also some major differences when purchasing a home in Manchester, NH versus Manchester, UK.
For example, in the US, home buyers have their own real estate agent who helps them find homes, drives them around to see homes and write up offers and negotiate on their behalf. In the UK and Ireland, home buyers are their own and only the seller has a real estate agent. There is also a major difference as to when the buyer and seller have an air-tight, legally binding contract to buy-sell the home.
As they say, all real estate is local!
