Guide to buying
Living by the water is a unique and very special lifestyle - which is why we’ve made it our mission to spread its benefits to as many people as possible.
Here’s why you should work with riverhomes to become one of the special few who gets to live by the river:
An enviable selection of properties
Due to the 14 years we’ve spent building our reputation as the London waterside specialists, we are regularly instructed to sell the capital’s most exquisite homes. If you know that the waterside lifestyle is what you want, riverhomes offers an extensive selection of properties that will be perfect for you - all overlooking or close to the water.
Intricate property and area knowledge
Our knowledge goes far beyond just bedroom sizes and the distance to the nearest station. We know the timings of the tides, when you’re likely to see a boat race from your window, when the garden will have the best light, the local shops that are worth investigating, and the restaurants that will impress visiting friends and family.
By the time you move in, you’ll know the area inside-out.
Fully attuned to your needs
We know how frustrating it is to spend time being dragged around properties that are totally unsuitable for you. We pride ourselves on taking the time to fully understand your needs, so we can quickly show you the properties that you’re most likely to fall in love with.
Updates to suit you
You want to stay updated, but we know that your time is valuable. Let us know the best way of keeping in contact with you - whether that be phone, email or SMS - and we’ll make sure we abide by your wishes.
Respected and reputable
Our integrity is underpinned by our professional accreditations, such as membership of the Ombudsman for Estate Agency (OEA). These accreditations guarantee that we’re reputable, accountable and respected.
Properties to suit different needs and budgets
We assign each property we’re instructed on to an appropriate category, which helps us determine which of our extensive selection best suit your needs and budget:
- riverhomes prime: homes that front the water
- riverhomes lifestyle: homes that are a short walk away from the water
- riverhomes houseboats: if you are looking to buy a houseboat and mooring, see our dedicated houseboats section
