Buyer’s Tips

Stay Alert:

Register to receive Property Alerts, be first to be informed of new houses coming on the market in your price range, area & size.

Save time:

When you see a property you like, but you don’t know the immediate area, check it out on Googles’ street view first, to make sure it is the right immediate location for you. It might save you time, for example, if you have cat’s, a main road is probably off putting, but for a commuter wanting great transport links it could be ideal.

Be Offer Ready:

Get your finances in order, you need to know if you can borrow and how much, before you start looking. You don’t want to find the house of your dreams, to lose it, because you’re not ready. Your offer can’t be accepted without proof of how you will finance the purchase. So that mean’s an agreement in principle from your mortgage lender and a bank statement showing the deposit you have. If you haven’t already done so we recommend you see an ‘independent mortgage adviser’ to discuss the best option for you, and obtain an agreement in principle from the mortgage lender, to borrow you the funds, to buy your home. Don’t just go to your bank, as they can only offer their narrow range of mortgages, see our mortgage page for information.

Put Yourself In Front:

A buyer’s position and how keen they are, is really important when sellers consider offers, particularly if they have received more than one. So, make sure you are ready go. Choose your solicitor in advance of finding your right home, it doesn’t cost you anything to choose your solicitor now, but means you can advise you have your solicitor in place and are ready to start the buying process the next day. This will show sellers, that you’re a serious buyer ready to move quickly, which is what they want. We can recommend solicitors and get you a free no obligation quote, see our conveyancing page for more information.

Have Vision:

We all have full busy lives, so it’s not surprising that the house with spacious measurements online, looks a little smaller when you view, as it is full of toy’s and lived in. See beyond the furniture and possessions, you will be fulling your new home with your own style.

Don’t Leave It Too Late:

The biggest complaint we hear from buyers, is ‘it’s already gone ” the market is moving quickly and if you want to secure your perfect home, move with it. In advance of starting your house hunting, work out your budget, and with this in mind you will be prepared, and know what you can afford, so when the right property comes along, you can offer with confidence.
