The first thing that you need to do is figure out your budget, so that you know exactly what you can afford; this will help you to find the house that is right for you and means that you can budget effectively to ensure that you can live easily within your means. Remember to budget with your deposit in mind.
What features do you want or need? That is what you need to ask yourself. Do you want a garage, off-road parking, a garden, or an en suite? If so, look for houses that meet your individual criteria.
Remember to also consider a compromise if you can’t find that property that encompasses all of your desires. Would you settle for a property with a yard and not a garden or a home with one bathroom but several large bedrooms?
Take the time to research the areas; find out where the schools, doctors, dental practices and supermarkets are. You will need to also research local transport networks – what is the public transport like? How much will it cost? Is there anywhere to keep a car? How do you get to the major motorway networks? Spend a bit of time in the area to fully get to grips with it.
What type of rental do you want? There are 2 to choose from (minus commercial of course): houses and flats/apartments. Which one you choose will depend on personal preference and your own requirements. Typically houses are preferred by families whereas flats and apartments are preferred by singles occupants and young couples – although this is certainly not the rule.
