How to Look?

With such a huge variety and quality of information available, it's sometimes difficult to identify that perfect home - the home of your dreams.  There are some things you can do to increase your chances of doing just that. Here are just a few of them.

10 Tips for Finding Your Dream Property

1- Make sure you are using the best property website for your search.  There are almost as many property finder websites as there are properties for sale, do your homework to identify the best ones.

2- Try to get the 'inside track' on properties coming onto the market soon - before they are actually listed. Talk to local real estate agents to find out if anything suitable might be coming up.

3- Do some research into the market in terms of prices. Such information is now readily available online and can help you avoid paying too much for your dream property.

4- Investigate the neighbourhood extensively. Visit your preferred location often, and at different times of the day to ensure you know as much as you can about the surroundings. Talk to other residents and shopkeepers, even the local police officers, to get the truth about the area.

5- Make sure you consider local planning notices, and newspaper articles, to try to find out what, if any, developments are planned for the locality. You may get a pleasant surprise, or a nasty shock.

6- Quiz the owner about the property. Find out as much information as you can about the property, and its amenities and services. About the neighbours, and the neighbourhood.

7- Look for problems.  Whilst that may seem somewhat negative, it's better to identify any potential deal breakers before you've handed over your life savings, than after. 

8- Consider the long-term saleability of the property. It may seem strange to start thinking about selling a property before you have even bought it, but it's always best to consider your exit strategy as early as possible.

9- Be proactive in finding the right property.  You don't have to wait until properties hit the market, you can be proactive and send a letter to suitable homes in your preferred location. This may get you into a property before other interested parties.

10- Finally, don't panic. Don't overpay for a property just because it seems too good a chance to miss. Always remember, there are many more properties out there - plenty more fish in the sea as they say!

So, there you have a number of useful, and hopefully profitable, tips to help you identify your ideal home.
