Viewing properties is a fun experience, especially when searching for your dream home! Here, we share three things to look for during a property viewing to help you to find the perfect option for your needs.
Check the room sizes
Although you’ll be given room dimensions along with the rest of a property’s details, it can be difficult to imagine whether your furniture will fit into the rooms of the home you’re looking at.
During your property viewing, pay close attention to each room and if you think they’re large enough for the items you want to move in. To be extra sure, you can always take a tape measure along so you can be more accurate.
Find out about the location
Considering the location of the property you’re viewing is especially important if you’re new to the area as you want to make sure that you’re moving somewhere that’s suitable for you.
For example, do you want to be within walking distance of a school or close to public transport options? During your property viewing, ask questions about the location and try to get there early, or leave time afterwards, so you can have a wander around the area and explore what’s nearby.
Consider the property’s potential
You’ll probably go into your property search with an idea about how much work you’d be happy to carry out on your new home if required, but even if you don’t want somewhere that needs renovating it can be good to keep the property’s potential in mind.
If you think that you’d like to convert the loft, extend, or make changes to create an open-plan space, you should find out whether there are any restrictions in place before proceeding with the purchase.
