Moving house, whether you’re renting or buying can be a daunting task. Looking on property portals such as Rightmove (www.rightmove.co.uk)and OnTheMarket.com (www.onthemarket.com) is a good place to start to identify
- What type of house are you looking for?
- Which area are you looking at?
- Do you need to take into account school catchment areas? Rightmove has a school checker feature which can be helpful (http://www.rightmove.co.uk/schools.html)
Once you’ve identified the above you’re ready to view, it’s time to contact the estate or letting agent that is listing the property you are interested in.
Having viewed the property you will be in a position to put forward your offer. Whether buying or selling there is inevitably a process of negotiation as you work out the terms of your purchase / let. For example, if you’re purchasing things to consider are asking price, fixtures and fittings, whether you are part of a chain or an unencumbered purchaser and if you’re looking to rent your agent will need to know the duration you wish to let for initially, when you are looking to move in and whether you require any improvements or changes before you move in.
