1. Where? (to look)

The first important stage in beginning your property search is deciding where to look. Browsing property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla is always a good place to start with a wide range of properties, giving you a great starting point to think about what you want in a home. However, having a look at your local Estate Agents websites is the best way of getting a head start on the best new homes as they are launched here before they make their way to the larger portals, so make sure you keep your eye on them!

2. What? (to look for)

Once you’ve started checking out available properties, you’ll soon get an idea of what you’re after in your new home. You may not have an exact dream home in mind but try creating a clear vision of you want, this includes bedrooms, bathrooms, garden and of course a price range! It is important to keep these things in mind when searching. Create a list of what’s important to you and narrow your search down based on this, having a smaller list of properties to look through will make your life easier!

3. How? (to find it)

Registering with your local estate agent is a must! They are the first to know about any properties going on the market and will be the first to let you know if your perfect home goes on the market. You can even find out about your new dream home before it goes live online, reducing the stress of finding out late and putting you one step ahead. This puts you in a great position for making an offer and progressing quickly to the next stage of your life.
