VIDEO: What mistakes are you making in your home search?

What are the common mistakes people make when searching for a new home?


Watch our video to find out: 



1. Not setting your budget 

Avoid disappointment and frustration by setting a clear budget, allowing for costs like stamp duty, conveyancing fees, and surveys.


2. Being too specific 

Restricting yourself to one particular street could mean you miss out on a fantastic property on the other side of town. 

Be open minded and ask your agent’s advice on other locations that are within your budget. Remember to decide what you’re prepared to compromise on ahead of time.


3. Falling in love at first sight

This can cloud your judgement. Are you overlooking the flaws? Ask yourself why you like it and if it actually meets your needs. 

Don’t get too invested, as you’ll be disappointment if your offer isn’t accepted – remember there will be more than one property for you! 


4. Overestimating your DIY skills

Be confident but realistic. Can you really do all that work – and afford it?
