House viewing in Peterborough is a great fun. It gives you a chance to view different properties in your budget, from the inside, not just the outside. You can get a real for a property and decide if that house could become your home.

House viewing in Peterborough also gives you the opportunity to ask lots of questions. Below we have listed some of the questions what we recommend you should ask when viewing houses in Peterborough.

How Long Has This House Been On The Market?

By asking this question you can find out of the home has been on the market a while. If it has you can speak to the estate agent about why. There may have been a higher price on the house before, or a buyer fell through. In some cases you may be able to make a lower offer on the property if it has been on the market a while and the seller is keen to get it sold quickly.

How Long Have The Home Owners Lived There?

If the home owners have lived in the house for ten years or more then you know it is a nice area to live. However if they have only been there for a short while you may want to dig a little bit deeper and find out more. They could be moving closer to an ill family member, or it’s been a relationship breakup. However they could have terrible neighbours and be keen to move away from them.

Why Are They Selling Their Home?

Similarly to the last question, you want to find out if there are any problems with the home and that is why they are moving. In many cases the sellers will be upgrading or downgrading and that is why they want to move. If you find out they are staying in the same village or even street, then you know it’s a good area to live as they want to stay there!

Is There A Chain?

By understanding how long the chain is and some details about people in the chain, you can start to see how long it may take from offer to completion. If it’s a short chain with a first time buyer then the time from offer to completion could be extremely quick. By knowing the chain you could be getting into before putting in an offer, you’ll be able to better weight up your options.
