Moving house can be difficult and stressful, which is why it’s so important to make sure that you’ve done your research and found the perfect property for you and your family, so you know you don’t have to move again for a good long while.
Making a mistake when house buying can prove to be very expensive, as well as having a huge impact on your mental and emotional wellbeing, so it’s vital that you know you’ve found the right house and it’s worth making the move.
Thinking about the future and how the house you’re looking at will address your needs as time goes on is a wise idea, especially if you know you’re unlikely to want to move again.
Think about whether you’ll be able to grow into the house, if there is enough room for children should you decide you want them, if there’s any undeveloped space you could transform and so on.
Asking questions of your estate agents is also a must so you can find out all about the property you’re keen on and there won’t be any nasty surprises once you’ve moved everything in and have started unpacking.
Seek answers to the likes of potential damp, if the building is structurally sound, how much storage space there is, how old the roof is, which way the house faces… make a list of questions so you don’t miss anything important.
It’s also a good idea to see as many properties as you can and keep a close eye on property websites while you’re looking, in case something new comes up, thus increasing your chances of finding your dream home.
