Securing a deposit is the first and most vital step to buying your own home. Familiarise yourself with an online mortgage calculator and remember, your credit score and income play a factor in this. You may wish to seek advice from your local mortgage advisor to ensure you are in the best financial position to proceed.
As you begin your property search it will come as no surprise how many deal-breakers you will find that you perhaps hadn’t thought about at the beginning of your search. Identifying the non-negotiables will prove vital when carrying out your search for the perfect property to call home. Don’t forget to look for what you want, what you
need (e.g.school etc), the area you wish to buy in and the timescales you have in mind.
Do Your Research

Make an Offer
So, you have decided to proceed with a property, you will need to put forward a formal offer with the estate agent promptly, as there may be other interested parties. Once the offer has been qualified and we have confirmation that you are proceedable financially we can move to accept your offer. At this stage, do think about whether you would like to negotiate on any goods in the property, now is the time to take note if the seller suggested any non-fixed items would be up for sale.
