Things to know before you move home to a different area

Things to know before you move home to a different area

Moving to a different area?

If you are buying or selling a property and moving to a different part of the country, a ZOOMLOCAL report could help. It could be part of your sellers’ package, or of course useful for you to make sure the new area really is where you want to settle.

Would you buy a car without looking under the bonnet?

Around 80% of homebuyers don’t bother getting any type of survey when buying a home, which is incredible! Imagine a local garage offering to sell you a car for £3k. Would you buy it without any knowledge of mechanics? No warranty? Without looking under the bonnet or checking the tyres? There won’t be many people that would say yes. So, if you are a seasoned pro or a first-time buyer and are about to purchase the perfect home, please ensure to commission a Homebuyer Report, a RICS Valuation or a Building Survey, our Sales team can help you decide which is best for you and the property in question.
