Uncategorized   |   May 27, 2022   |   Wright & Co Estate Agents


For the majority of people, a property is one of the biggest purchases they will ever make and it is so important to ensure you’re investing in the right house to prevent the stress, hassle and cost associated with moving home multiple times. However, finding your dream home isn’t always easy and there are so many different factors to take into consideration when browsing the property market. 


Whether you’re already a homeowner or you’re a first-time buyer, below we have put together some useful tips for finding the best property to purchase. Taking into consideration everything below can help to make the experience of buying your dream home much more enjoyable. 


Make a list of what you like and don’t like 


Before you start looking at houses for sale, it will be really useful to create a list of things you don’t like about the property you’re currently living in and a list of things you would ideally like to have in your dream home. Then, you should put the list of things you would like to have into an order of priority starting with the things you’re not willing to compromise on. Doing this can help you to identify the things that you consider to be necessities and you will know what to look for when you start browsing the market. 


Find out exactly how much you can spend


It can be easy to view properties that are way out of your budget, especially if you don’t really know what your budget is, and this can result in you falling in love with a house you can’t afford. To stop this from happening, it’s always worthwhile speaking to a mortgage advisor prior to looking at houses for sale. They can give you a better idea of how much you will be able to borrow and you can then make sure you’re sticking to a realistic budget when trying to find your dream home, preventing disappointment. 


Think ahead to the future 


If you plan on living in your dream home for many years to come, you need to take into consideration the future when choosing a property to purchase. For example, would you like to have children in the future? If so, you may want to look for a house with a couple of spare bedrooms and a spacious garden. Thinking ahead will help to ensure the house you choose will still be suitable for your family in the future, so you won’t need to move again in a few years.  


Enlist the help of an estate agent


Whilst you don’t necessarily need the help of an estate agent to browse the property market, enlisting their help can make the process of finding your dream home much easier. An experienced estate agent will have a wealth of knowledge about the property market and they can inform you how likely you are to find a property that ticks all of your boxes in terms of size, location and budget. An estate agent can also let you know if anything new comes on the market that would be perfect for you. 


Don’t be afraid to view a property twice 


Instead of rushing into things and making an offer on a property after just one viewing, it can be really useful to go back for a second look. Viewing a property is very exciting and it can be easy to overlook important features, so a second visit provides you with the opportunity to double-check that it is the right choice. If possible, if your first viewing was in the morning at the weekend, ask for the second viewing to be in the evening during the week, this will enable you to see the house in a different light too.
