Search for the perfect home

Searching for your new home has got to be one of the most exciting stages of the moving process but it’s important to look with some method behind the madness. By now you will know what houses are within your price range. It’s important to stick to these properties and to not get carried away drooling at millionaire’s row.

Firstly, write a list of all the things that are essential to your new property. You list should look something like this:

  • Three bedrooms
  • Two bathrooms
  • Spacious kitchen
  • Dining area
  • Garden

Secondly you need to write a list of all the things you would like your property to have but that aren’t absolutely necessary. It’s rare to achieve absolutely everything you want in your new home so it’s good to have a little room to manoeuvre. You list should look something like this:

  • Conservatory
  • Large garden
  • Office space

Once you have your targets all set you can start searching for your dream property. Be sure to look utilising all possible search tools – look online, via estate agents, in the local newspaper and call one of our Move Planners and get them involved too.
