Henry Pryor is a buying agent, professional negotiator and housing market commentator.
Henry worked for Savills for 10 years before running the country house department in London for Strutt & Parker. He left to set up the first of what became known as the “affiliate groups”, The London Office for provincial estate agents.
In early 2007, to the annoyance of some of Henry professional colleagues, he suggested that we may have witnessed the top of the housing market. The FT were brave enough to run the story and it led to Henry first interview on the Today program, where he was subsequently proved right by the events of the 'credit crunch'.
For the past ten years Henry has worked as a ‘buying agent‘, sourcing homes between £500k and £50m, some for the rich & famous others for the plain hard working. After 37 years in the business Henry has bought and sold over 1,000 properties.
Henry advised a buying agent can;
Source off-market properties – those available but not advertised on websites or in agents windows.
Advise on areas, compare and contrast different places.
Research a street, village or town looking at crime, natural threats such as flooding and over-flights by planes.
Assess relative value.
Will research the motivations of the sellers and look for pressure points like death, debt or divorce.
Comment on yield and the potential for capital growth.
Negotiate with the seller and their agent. (Not all selling agents are slippery but some certainly are!).
Introduce the best mortgage brokers, accountants and wealth managers along with advisors, tradesmen & lawyers.
Liaise with solicitors, valuers, surveyors, architects, builders and contractors.
