Tips for house hunting

If you are currently looking to buy a house then you will probably already have in mind both an area and a budget. Doing your research before you start your search proper will save you a lot of time down the line and thus greatly simplify your search. There are several things you need to take into consideration when it comes to finding your ideal home, and these can vastly differ depending on your own circumstances.

You should consider how re-sellable it is further down the line when you decide to move. While that property that has been sitting on the estate agents books for months and had its price dropped several times may seem like a great bargain, you have to ask yourself why nobody has snapped it up before now. When you try to sell it several times down the line do you really want to wait for months for a buyer and have to keep dropping the price.

If you have a young family you will have to consider areas that have both good schools and be within commutable distance for work, and these are the areas that tend to have the houses that carry the largest price tags. Be realistic when you are considering these two factors, how far can you reasonably be away from the school or work, if the logistics don’t add up then an urgent review of your budget may be needed.

Areas such as York are always incredibly popular as they are judged to be one of the premium places to live in the country. Houses here don’t come cheap obviously, as city living is one of the most desirable. York, with all its attractions and new business facilities has seen a huge upsurge in interest in recent years and finding your ideal home here can be difficult if you don’t know where to look.
