Moving home can be incredibly stressful; in fact, it’s considered one of the biggest stresses that we face throughout our lives. However, it can be worsened by a constant worry about finances. Whether you’re a first time buyer or moving into your fifth property, here are some top tips to help you move onto the next step.
Before signing on the dotted line for a home, it is important to take a few cautionary steps to ensure the foundation and structure of your home are secure, rodent free and clear of any moisture or water damage. Investing in a professional inspection can save you thousands of dollars in flooring, framing, and foundation repair after purchase. Most sellers will negotiate their asking price based on the damage estimates and provide you with a pest, rodent, and moisture free home that you will enjoy for years to come.
Buying a new home is an exciting prospect. It is a chance to have a space that is your own, no landlord breathing down your neck and no restrictions on décor (though you might need to get planning permission before you carry out some renovations). It is also a significant symbol of achievement for most working adults.
