As soon as you come across a property you like, make an appointment with the Estate Agent or, if the property is being sold privately, with the seller to view it. Moving quickly is important, particularly if the property has just come onto the market; if it's desirable, you can bet that other buyers will be interested. Slot Game Online.
Take someone with you on viewings. Not only will this increase your safety (particularly important if you're a woman), but you also get a second opinion, and, if you're inclined to get carried away, someone to stop you. Try not to take the kids along however, as they will just get in the way and distract you from the task at hand. Slot Game Online.
Arranging Good Viewing Times
Most people view properties after work, or a weekends (usually a Saturday as most agents don't work Sundays) - which is fine. The key is to arrange to view the house in daylight so that you can see how much natural light it gets - In winter therefore, viewing on the weekend is better than after work. Slot Game Online.
Here are some tips to make the most efficient use of your time:
Work out how many properties you can comfortably view in one go - Try not to book in more than a handful or you'll get tired and irritable and be less capable of making the right decision. The maximum you should view is 5 in one day, but be aware that this can be very exhausting. Slot Game Online.
Consider taking a day off work to view several properties in one go - This offers a few benefits - the agent will be less busy than at the weekend, you can get a good number of properties out of the way in one hit, and the task won't cut into your leisure time. Slot Game Online.
Go as early in the day as you can - If a flat in a desirable area goes on sale on a Thursday and you can't see it until Saturday evening, you may have missed the boat. But if you view it first thing Saturday morning, you can beat the prospective buyers lined up to see it during the day. And if you like it you can make an offer, which the seller may accept before anyone else gets the chance to make one. Slot Game Online.
If you're interested in a property after the first viewing, revisit it several times. Don't be afraid to make as many repeat appointments as you need to help you make up your mind. The second viewing is useful for measuring up and checking whether your sofa will fit into the lounge. Feel free to take a tape measure and notebook to jot these details down. Slot Game Online.
On follow up viewings as to look around on your own without the agent or seller watching your every move. This will help you feel less harassed. Slot Game Online.
Arrange follow up viewings at different times of the day and night (within reason) so you can assess how noise and traffic levels affect the property. If, for example, the house is opposite a school, the road will get very busy around 9am and 3.30pm. When you arrange follow up meetings, try to time them so that you can be at the property during potential problem times. Slot Game Online.
What To Look For During A Viewing
Before you view any properties, it's important that you're clear about what you're looking for. This may sound blindingly obvious, but until you ask yourself what features a property must have and what features you'd quite like but aren't essential, you can't work out whether a property is suitable for you. With your criteria in mind, you can view a property and objectively compare it with your criteria. Slot Game Online.
Write a list of 'must haves' and 'would likes' before viewing any properties. As long as you can tick off all the 'must haves', the property is suitable. And if you have several ticks next to the 'would likes' as well, consider it a bonus. Slot Game Online.
Looking At The Exterior
Your viewing of the property starts before you even set foot inside the front door. Before entering the property, check the exterior and make sure that you're satisfied with the answers to the following questions:
Do the neighbourhood houses appear clean and well cared for? Are the neighbours' drives clear of old cars and rubbish? The type of neighbours you want are those who take pride in their homes. This can also be an important factor when you come to sell the property. Slot Game Online.
Is the road noisy and busy? Is there room for parking? Would it be safe for children to play in the street at night?
Does the roof look sound, or are tiles missing? Don't forget to check the guttering and drains, particularly if it's raining.
If it is night-time, is it well lit? Would you feel safe walking home late at night? Would you feel happy leaving your car in the street at night? Does the exterior of the property need a lick of paint? If so, you may be able to negotiate with the seller over the purchase price. Slot Game Online.
Have any extensions been added to the property?
Although selling the property is likely to be the last thing on your mind, consider how easy it will be when you move. Look out for anything that might make this difficult, such as mobile phone mast or electricity pylons in the immediate vicinity, aeroplanes roaring overhead or intercity trains hurtling past at all hours of the day and night. Check train time tables and arrange several viewings at different times to make sure that any potential noise isn't intrusive to the property. Slot Game Online.
