Avoid money melodramas
To beat other potential buyers, you need to get your finances sorted.
Check out the following pointers to get a head start:
- Review your credit score. If it’s low, you may struggle to get a mortgage.
- If you know how much you can afford, make sure you’ve got a large enough deposit saved.
- Get a mortgage in principle so you know how much you can borrow.
Trust the professionals
From estate agents to builders, conveyancers to mortgage brokers – the people around you matter.
Many buyers don’t take advice or ignore what they’re told, which can lead to countless problems.
Don’t underestimate costs
When buying an older property, get a surveyor round or view the property with a builder before making an offer.
Legal fees, commission payments and other associated costs can build up, so it’s essential to ensure enough money is left in the pot to carry out any work.
