  • House for sale transport links – even if working from home is becoming more and more predominant, we suggest you check the transport links the house for sale has.

  • Number of bedrooms in the house for sale – are you looking for houses for sale for the whole family or are you single? Always think about how many bedrooms you need and if that number might change in the future

  • energy performance of the house for sale – What is the EPC of the house for sale? Today more than ever, is important that you check the EPC rating of the real estate assets available for sale on the market.

  • Internet speed in the area of the house for sale – it is important to remember that internet speed is a consequence of two factors: your plan and the infrastructure available in the area. Always check these parameters before looking for houses for sale. Especially if you are renting the property as this will impact your business costs. Whether that be in an excluded tenancy agreement or a more common, assured shorthold tenancy.

  • Does the house for sale have parking – if yes, is it on-street or is the house for sale equipped with a garage?

  • Houses for sale in conservation areas – always check the National Heritage list. If a house for sale is part of this list it means that it might be impossible for you to make changes to the property’s internal and external structure.

  • Houses for sale Conditions – some properties, like new builds, need no repairs or works; other houses listed for sale may need some investment to restore them and some others may need a complete renovation. Someone looking for houses for sale should always think about how much time and money they are willing to invest to complete the needed repairs.
