At Absolute, we are often involved in the early stages when clients are buying a new home. We’re commonly asked to advise, before clients make an offer, on a property’s potential for renovation, outline costs for planned works and the process for carrying out a renovation. We also frequently start to plan and design for renovation projects immediately after exchange of contracts, to ensure contractors can start on site as soon as possible after the sale completes.
A member of our team recently became a first time buyer, so we have compiled a list of things to consider when buying a house.
This is part of a 9-part series:
Finding the right property – What do you want and how to find it
Costs – Before you make an offer consider all the associated costs
Making an offer – Out tips on securing your property
Choosing a solicitor – A vital part for an efficient purchase
Building survey – Why you need one and what to do if issues are raised
Measuring – Start planning your space before you move
Arranging to have work done before you move
Moving in – Practical advice to help organise your move
Settling in – Helping you get your house exactly as you’d like it
If you’re in the process of buying a house which needs renovation or need advice on a property’s potential before you buy; please get in touch. We can help with a whole project or simply provide advice on a consultancy basis until your purchase is complete.
