What to look for when buying a home


What To Look For When Buying A Home

When looking for a new home, there is a huge amount to take into consideration. Budgets, locations, rooms, styles and personal preferences all have to be juggled with before a decision can be reached. You would be forgiven, therefore, if some of these details slipped your mind during a viewing. Unfortunately, this doesn’t make them any less important, nor make them need answers any less!

So rather than setting about to research and then memorise the multitude of checks that must be looked at when buying a home, here at Which? Mortgage Advisers we have done the hard work for you and put together an infographic of essential things to look for when house hunting.

Starting from when you arrive at your viewing – we have looked at what you should spot from the outside of the house before moving inside to the ground floor and beyond. We have also provided some insight into what you should be looking out for in the local area to make sure there are no nasty surprises if you chose to move in!
