Property Sourcing

We understand that finding your dream home can be extremely time consuming and often quite daunting.

To make full use of our experts knowledge and experience whilst at the same time freeing up your own time we offer our bespoke property sourcing service.

We start by setting you up with an initial meeting with one of our teams experts and go in to detail about what it is you’re looking for and your requirements. We will then give you honest and open advice and talk you through the current property market and if your expectations can be met or even exceeded.

Once you’re 100% happy to let us source for your dream property we set out and use every available method to find your new home. We will be in contact daily after sourcing all appropriate properties in your specific area and give you property lists for you to go through.

We only source properties that meets your criteria. When we source a house that you would like to view we set up a viewing for you and one of our experts to go and see the property. When once we have found a property that you are happy with and you would like to make an offer on we then manage the negotiation side.

Location Research

Choosing the location of your new home

Choosing the right location for your new home is widely considered one of the most important decisions and with so many aspects to think about there is no surprise why.

Buying a house is probably the biggest investment you will make so getting it right first time will help elevate any stress and problems that could come in the future.

If you’re young a flat in the bustling city centre may sound appealing now but in 1-2 years your priorities may change and so you need to be living in an area that will accommodate for these changes.

Location, location, location better translates to compromise, compromise and more compromises!

You need to find a balance that will serve you well in the immediate future and also long term over the next 5, 10, 15+ years.

Going to view a property

When going to view a property for the first time it is important to remember what to look for. There can lots of things that you might overlook if you don’t go in prepared so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Here at Town and City Homes in Dartford we have put together this simple list of things to remember when viewing a property for the first time.

  • If the house is on a main road, try to come back at different times of day and night to judge noise level, traffic and safety.
  • Always check the outside of the property before entering. Check for any noticeable defects, for example: the roof; tiles, chimney and guttering.
  • Check the condition of the windows
  • Check any paving to make sure it is not cracked or loose.
  • Check parking on the road if there isn’t driveway or garage. Can you park easily?
  • Check any gates and make sure they are secure and not damaged.
  • Always view a property with someone else. Take a friend go with your partner or with the estate agent, for that “extra set of eyes”.
  • Once inside check all fixtures and fittings, ask what’s included and check the quality.
  • Look out for damp patches in particular, on the ceiling or at the bottom of walls and check behind large furniture and fittings if you can.
  • Make sure you ask about the plumbing and heating. How old is the boiler? Does the toilets flush properly and does the water heats up quickly?
  • Check for any work that has been done on the property and if there has, be sure to request for receipts and guarantees.
  • Go in the loft and check the insulation and condition of the overall loft space.
  • Check the bills and council tax so you can get a good idea of the running costs of the property.
  • Make conversation with the seller and build a relationship as they are more likely to accept an offer from someone they like
  • Most importantly check that it suits your taste and you get a good feeling when entering the property!

 

Using this checklist and your own checklist for things you want to see will make going to view a property that bit easier and you will know exactly what to look for.
