How to find your next home

Posted on Monday, July 13th, 2015 in Buying Advice

Searching for your new home can be exciting and often very daunting. The amount of information available nowadays should make finding the right property easy but in truth most buyers often feel overwhelmed by the choice or despondent by the lack of the perfect home.

We suggest you make a list of essentials the property must have (number of bedrooms, garden, parking, age, type, condition and of course location). Make sure this list only has items which are absolutely non-negotiable because if your wish list is too long finding the right home can be extremely difficult.

Although we encourage everyone to search the property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla (where all of our properties can be found), or drive around your chosen area to note down for sale boards outside suitable properties, the best way to fine tune your requirements and get a real understanding of what’s available is to register with expert local estate agents. We are delighted to help buyers search for their perfect home and everyone who is registered on our ‘Preferred Buyers’ database will be informed about suitable properties before they are available on the property portals.
