Finding your home

Once you have decided that you want to move, it is worthwhile making a list of what you want from a property and where you want to live.




Ask yourself questions that are important to you. This list isn’t exhaustive, but it will get you started:


  • How far are you prepared to travel for work?
  • Are there good transport links?
  • Are you looking to be near Schools?
  • Other local amenities and services…. Could you pop out for milk if needed?


What about the property?


Ask yourself what you are looking for:


  • Do you need a house or a flat?
  • How much storage do you need?
  • Do you need 3 bedrooms, or would just like 3 bedrooms?
  • Property age - old or new?
  • How important is outside space? Could you maintain a large garden?
  • Is parking important to you?
  • Do you need a garage or just would like a garage?
  • What is the council tax like, can you afford it?
  • Could you live with existing décor for a few months until you can afford to improve it?
  • Is the bathroom/kitchen functional, can you replace it a few months down the line when your funds are replenished?
  • Could you knock a wall down to make a bigger space? Could you add an extension to accommodate the living space you need?
  • Does it have the potential to be the right home, even though it may not be at the moment?
