Viewing houses can be very time-consuming, and may even be demoralising if you don’t do your research beforehand. After all, no-one wants to book time off work or lose hours of their weekend with viewings that simply aren’t worthwhile.Before you book any viewings or visit any show homes, use online searches to find suitable homes in your chosen area, and be honest about your must-have criteria.
If you absolutely need three bedrooms, don’t waste your time viewing two bed houses. If a utility room is a must, check the specifics before you make an appointment or think about adapting existing space, so that you can include one. While it’s a good idea to be flexible and open-minded, it’s only really worth viewing houses that tick all the right boxes.
