When it comes to buying a house in Peterborough, property viewings are essential. This is your chance to see the property and picture yourself living there. Here at Letters Group we have completed thousands of property viewings over the years. This very often means we know what we are going to be asked, before the viewing even starts. That’s the great thing about house hunting with professional estate agents. We are here to help you and experienced in helping people just like you.
Here are some things you can do to make the most of your property viewing in Peterborough. After all, buying a home is a big decision and there will be a lot to take in.
- Property Viewing Times
It’s a good idea to visit the house in daylight. This will give you an opportunity to really see the home and surrounding areas. However, we recommend that you go back at different times the day. You don’t need to book a viewing for this as you are assessing the area. Look at how busy the roads are, if it is quiet in the evening and how easy it is to park, for example. By viewing the property at different times you’ll get a real feel for your potential new home.
- Meet The Neighbours
Nobody knows the area better than the neighbours. The person selling the home will say all the things you want to hear so they can sell their home to you. However, it makes no difference to the neighbours. They can let you know what’s great about the area, what the community is like and the best local restaurants too. They’ll also let you know about things they dislike about the area, or tips to get the most from your home.
- The Room Uses
As you go through each room in the house during the viewing, think about how you will use the space. Can you picture in your head what you will use each room for? Imagine where you will put your furniture and where all your belongings will go too. If you can’t imagine your furniture in the room, then this could be a sign that’s it’s not the right home for you.
These are just three ways that you can make the most of your property viewings. Here at Letters Group, our professional and friendly estate agents are here to help you. They will recommend the homes that suit your needs and help you with any queries you have.
