Buying a house is likely the most expensive investment a person will ever make. And, from finding the right location to choosing the style of property which suits you, there’s lots to consider. While some people may choose to completely renovate their new home, others may be seeking accommodation which is ready to move straight into. Whatever you’re looking for, in an effort to reduce the possibility of stress with your move on the property market, it may be worth thinking about some important aspects when taking a tour of a potential new home.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer or you’re looking to down-size, it’s not uncommon to have several viewings of a property before making the decision to buy it.
And, during these visits, RubberBond have suggested considering 29 different points - ranging from what the roof looks like, to the local transport links.
So, what did they suggest?
According to the roofing specialists, taking a look at potential problem areas outside of the property could be a very good idea indeed.
Looking at the age of a roof, for instance, as well as whether it’s flat or pictured, and has any missing tiles, could mean you avoid buying a house which is home to a whole host of problems.
Similarly, while browsing the home, take a look at whether the windows are hosting any problems.
Once you’ve stepped inside the property, it’s good to take a closer look at certain aspects of the home, too.
Taking a look at the attic, and whether it could be altered, may mean you discover storage space - or perhaps even the opportunity to extend.
And, seeing what the phone service is like before you buy, may be beneficial.
Location will likely pay a big part of whether you make a purchase, for many people.
Not only should you check what the local amenities are like, but considering whether you’re likely to be disturbed by passers-by late at night - or even aeroplanes overhead - comes recommended.
