What are your New Year Property Resolutions?

30 Dec 2016

It’s that time of year again – setting your New Year Resolutions which usually fall by the way side by February (well they do for me at least.)

But what if you set your mind to buying / renting your first home, selling / letting your home or buying an investment property. With some planning and help with my below checklist you could achieve your goals!

RESOLUTION 1 – Buying your first home in 2017.

  • Draw up a budget
  • Talk to an Independent broker about the amount you can borrow.
  • Set a goal of how much deposit you can save each month.
  • Make a list of areas & must-have v’s nice to have
  • Compare house prices in the area.
  • Register with local agents.
  • Go to viewings
  • When you find the one offer.

  • De – Clutter!
  • A lick of paint really makes a difference
  • Speak to a local agent and ask for a valuation
  • List property for sale/ for let.

RESOLUTION 3 – Buy an Investment Property in 2017

  • Decide what your investment is for – yield, growth, pension
  • Consider different areas that work best for your interest
  • Speak to one of our buy to let specialists – we can suggest good areas, yields, rental figures
  • Consider costs involved when buying and once you become a landlord.
  • Figure out what you can afford to pay and set a limit/budget.
  • Once you have found the right property speak to Fineholm about property management.
