Grantham Weekend Property News

When you start browsing homes, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of opportunity. It’s even easier to get swept up in the moment and end up making bad choices!

Taking time to decide what you want in a Grantham property before you start viewing can help you quickly find the right place.

If you’re struggling to choose a home, here are our tips on how to find the right place to buy in Grantham.


1.     Decide What’s Important and What’s Not


When thinking about your new home, you may have a mile-long list of hopes and dreams. It’s great to know what you want before you start looking. But it’s also a good idea to know what’s important and what’s not. Finding the dream home with everything you want can be tricky, if not impossible.

Make a list of your top priorities and split things into a list of ‘essentials’ and ‘nice-to-haves’. This will help make choosing your Grantham home much easier.


2.     Consider The Long-Term


If you’re moving home or buying your first place, make sure you’re thinking about the long-term. Knowing how long you’ll stay in your new home can help you decide what’s needed.

For example, if you want to stay for at least ten years, will you need a school nearby, good transport links or a spare bedroom?

You don’t need to plan your entire life. But it’s good to have a rough idea of what you need long-term when choosing a new home.


3.     Think About Investment and Resale Value


If you’re thinking about investing in renovation work when you move, consider the resale value and future development of the area.

Ask your estate agent for information about things like extension potential or projected resale value in five to ten years. This can help you decide whether you’d rather choose a property that needs lots of work or one that’s ready to move into.


4.     Think About What You Want To Be Close To


When looking for a home in the Grantham area, think about what amenities you want nearby. Is it important that you are near the station or a bus stop? Or is it more important that you have access to the local schools or parks?

Deciding what amenities are important can help narrow down your search. Just make sure you’re not being too specific with your search, The more specific you are, the harder it’ll be to find your new home!
