The Steps of Purchasing a Property
Our August update to our blog focuses on the steps taken when purchasing a property.
Finding a reliable estate agent is of the utmost importance when looking to purchase or to sell a property. When looking to purchase a property, it’s vital to bear in mind that there is a specific set of steps taken before the final process of buying or selling the property. When selling your property, this usually takes the form of the initial valuation, selecting your estate agent & instructing a solicitor to presenting your property, marketing it and offering viewings. After you receive an offer which you agree on then an exchange of contracts can take place resulting in the purchasing of the property. This process can take a few months so it’s important to be in the know-how about every aspect and to be fully prepared. This can make the process a lot less stressful whilst helping you in the sale of your property. As when you are looking to purchase a property you are in a similar situation, without potentially having to present the property then this process may be less stressful. However, where exchanges occur; the steps in selling your property could be almost the same. This is why the team at Foden Property are more than happy to advise you in the purchasing or the sale of a property. Our team can use their wealth of experience to advise you on all of the steps to purchasing the property as well as offering advice throughout the process.
Deciding When to Purchase a Property
It’s also important to consider when you are going to purchase a property or to make your property available for purchase. The New Years period is always a busy time, with potential homeowners looking to start the New Year by purchasing a property. This means that you may want to think about when to sell your property, as there are pros and cons for marketing your property at this time. This also leads well into thinking about how fast you wish to make a sale. If you have a lot of time and are looking to finalise every detail then this may not be appropriate for certain buyers. If a potential buyer looks to be in a rush regarding the purchase then they may be impatient if you are not on their page for example. The same can be said if you are in a rush and find a buyer that wishes to bide their time regarding making decisions. Thinking about if a buyer is right for you is very important and can even aid in making a sale more smooth and less stressful. Here at Foden Property, we will also endeavour to find buyers that suit what you are looking for, as well as buyers that are matched to the property on our database.

Thoughts When Looking to Purchase a Property
The October edition of our article takes an in-depth look at what you need to consider when viewing a property for sale.
When you are looking to purchase a property, there are likely a number of thoughts in your mind on what you are looking for and which types of property are idea to your requirements. There’s understandably a lot of pitfalls associated with looking to purchase a property which you need to keep in mind when viewing and considering your next home. At first, it’s important to take time when looking to purchase a property for sale. You do not have to view a property once and it’s often advised to visit the property two to three times at different times before making your decision. This allows you to visit the property at different times such as in the morning, at rush hour and in the evening. This allows you to work out if you are living in a busy area or if you are underneath a busy flight route for example. Should you decide that it’s quiet enough during these times then it’s also important to consider the area that the property is located in. Are you next to a busy street, takeaway or nightclub? These areas can be particularly loud and rowdy in the early hours of the morning on the weekend so it’s important to consider the area before rushing to make a purchase. Once you have considered this you’ll need to have a serious check for a lot of things when viewing the property.
Ensure That You Thoroughly Check the Property
When viewing the property, it’s important to carry out extensive checks and not just take a look around. This can range from checking light switches to water points and water pressure. You need not necessarily be put off by problems that need to be fixed as these can be used to negotiate on price should these repairs cost a substantial amount of money or there is a long list of repairs that need to be carried out. Checking for mould is important as mould can be painted over to hide the damage. Mould can be hidden but the musky smell is harder to hide so ensure that you check that there are no obvious signs of mould around the property. It’s also a sensible idea to check the neighborhood and to look at the condition of other houses. If they are well-kept then this indicates that the street is in good order. If houses are run-down and are in disrepair then this can indicate issues that may be being hidden in the house that you are not aware of so vigilance is key. When you are looking at rooms that are filled with smaller furniture, assess how much space you have available. This is also a great tip when looking at the kitchen area. Pretending that you are preparing a meal is a great way to see if you have enough space in the current kitchen to cook and prepare food.
