Looking for a new home can be quite a stressful time as well as an exciting one – you may have to find an estate agent to sell your existing home, things are changing with the fees, such as the stamp duty holiday, and you may find yourself checking house survey information and the latest news about house surveys.
As well as thinking of all this, you will be looking for your dream home, and competing with others who are also looking for the same things – when it comes to looking for the perfect property, there are some things that are more sought after than others.
A Garden – Having a garden is one of the things that as Brits we take a great deal of pride in. A patch of land all of our own, whether we want space for the kids to play, grow our own vegetables, or recreate the Chelsea flower show – a garden is high on the list.
A Driveway – Off road parking has become increasingly desirable, especially since the trend towards households owning more than one car. It is also nice to have a good place for visitors to park when they pop in.
A Good Area – Depending on your age and situation this can mean many things – for some, it is being in the catchment area of a good OFSTED rated primary school, for others it means being walking distance to local shops and amenities.
