Starting to view suitable properties - Think Property – Move Right:

You wouldn’t try on clothes you didn’t like, so why waste time going to see properties that won’t work for you or your family? Be clear about the things you need, the things you would like and the things you could sacrifice. How important is location and is a garage or garden essential? Be clear in discussing this with your agent and don’t let yourself get carried away by properties which you know in your heart just aren’t right.

It’s difficult but if you can be practical about exactly what it is you’re looking for, then you have a better chance of finding something you’ll really fall in love with. Try to see lots of houses and get an idea of what your money will buy and the kinds of properties on the market. If you like a certain house then see it at different times of the day and get a feel for its different moods. After all, you are going to be living here for years to come and are spending hundreds of thousands of pounds - taking a little bit of time to make your mind up has to be sensible. The person selling the house is always the best person to tell you about it and so don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Move Angels’ Quick summary

  • Make sure you see properties which match what you are looking for.
  • Why is the seller moving and what’s included in the sale price? Don’t be afraid to go back and look at a property again or ask more questions if you think of things at a later date.
