Online estate agent, I Am The Agent has announced a new partnership with Capricorn Mortgages, part of the Capricorn Wealth Management group. The agreement between the two firms will provide I Am The Agent clients with easy access to mortgage advice and details on the best available mortgage rate for any property in I Am The Agent’s online portfolio.
Capricorn Mortgages is a bespoke London mortgage broker, offering a full ‘advice and recommendation’ service to clients. Its advisors are fully licensed, qualified and FSA registered and have years of experience in the industry covering UK mortgage broking and general financial planning. It will integrate its unique intellicalc mortgage and affordability calculator with the I Am The Agent website. The mortgage calculator will appear on every private property sale listing at IAmTheAgent.com.
Conor Murphy director of Capricorn Financial Consultancy said, “This is an excellent partnership for both parties. Intellicalc allows buyers to search for property based on affordability and this works exceptionally well with an online agency such as I Am The Agent. All clients will be contacted within two hours and most within the hour by a Capricorn adviser. We can give them all the follow up advice that they need to enable them to make an informed decision on their property purchase.’
Designed to make the buying process easier and stress free, the partnership between the two firms comes as The British Banker’s Association warned that home loan approvals reached a 12 month low in February.
Rebecca Peach, managing director of I Am The Agent said, “We are very excited about our partnership with Conor and his team, it will allow our buyers the opportunity to view an array of mortgage offerings that are exclusive to Capricorn and the Open Work’s network. The bespoke client experience that Capricorn Wealth offers is second to none and the home visits and in depth knowledge allows an independent view at your own convenience”.
The intellicalc mortgage calculator makes it possible for potential buyers to instantly see whether or not they can afford the property under consideration. It allows the would-be homeowner to enter their available deposit, annual income and property price as well as select from repayment or interest only mortgages. An experienced mortgage broker from Capricorn Mortgages will then call or email within two hours with details on the best available mortgage rates and further advice about the mortgage and house buying process. The service is available across standard residential mortgages as well as buy-to-let investments.
As part of the agreement between fixed fee estate agent I Am The Agent and Capricorn Mortgages, regular mortgage posts will be added to the I Am The Agent blog, giving readers essential insight into mortgage rates and availability.
