How to speed up the purchase of your ideal home
Buying a home is a very exciting time, so it’s in everyone’s interest to speed up the process. There are specific steps you can take to steer things in the right direction.
Know your stuff
A house is likely to be the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, which means certain legalities are involved. Getting your head around the key terms will help you communicate easily with estate agents and solicitors.
Who you work with is also very important. Ask friends and family to recommend trusted property professionals and removal companies to get your ducks in a row before you begin.
Organise your finances
Once you feel confident about progressing, it’s time to weigh up your options. Should you sell before you put in an offer? While you’ll be a chain-free buyer, you’ll have to factor in storage costs and rent while looking for your ideal home.
It’s also a good idea to talk to a mortgage expert to arrange an agreement in principle.
So, you’re ready to make an offer. If the seller accepts, arrange a date for exchanging contracts and communicate your requirements to your solicitor clearly, so everyone stays on the same page. On that note, make sure you respond quickly to any requests to prevent holdups.
Of course, you will need a trusted partner with expert local knowledge to help you sell your current home or buy a new one. That’s where we come in.
