The secrets to finding your ideal home this spring

Purchasing a property is an exciting experience and is the single largest purchase most people will ever make.

Finding the perfect home can be a difficult task, so before you begin, consider these four things:
 
Select your location
Only begin searching for a new home once you have determined a selection of locations you are interested in living in. It is important to consider council tax charges, proximity to amenities and schools, available property types, and available transport links.
 
Compile a must-have checklist
Create a list of all the features that are a must, followed by all the features that would be nice, but are not essential. When looking for a house, you can then ensure that everything on your ‘must-have’ list is ticked off and that everything on your ‘nice-to-have’ list is a bonus. When it comes to comparing homes, you can see which ones check the most boxes to help you make a final decision.
 
Consider your future needs
To prepare for the long term, consider choosing a property that will support your growth. Is there enough space? Is there a garden? Are there any improvements you could make, such as converting undeveloped space? These are the kinds of factors to examine.
 
Look at all costs
Of course, finding a property within your budget is important, but you should also factor in other expenses, including house improvements. If you find a property that you believe would be great with a few tweaks, consider the financial implications of those changes. While some may be minor, such as wallpaper or paint colour, others, such as replacing the flooring or reconfiguring the kitchen layout, could be rather costly.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
