Viewing a Property in Edinburgh

By Graham Lamont Subscribe to RSS | January 28th 2012 | Views:

One of the most important decisions of your life is to buy a house. It is very important that you must take time before making a decision; if you decide in hurry then you might end up repenting your entire life. Before making a decision of buying a property, you must always take out time and do a detailed viewing of the property. This will help you to check everything that you want. You must keep in mind that you just not buy the property because the property looks charming or it looks good in pictures. You must consider all the important things relating to the property.

Important steps before viewing:

Earliest step which you have to take before arranging for a viewing that you must contact to the estate agent and get as much information about the property as possible. At the moment agents have floor plans, pictures, room dimensions, virtual tours etc. These can be very helpful and you should get these and spend some time to study them. After that, you should visit the area to have an idea of the neighborhood. By doing this you will have the clear picture of what you want.

Once you have gone all these steps and still have a positive view of the property, then you should ask the estate agent to arrange for a property viewing.

It is better; you must put in order a notebook before you go for a viewing. You should make a check list of all the portions you need to look into. Another important thing is that you should also take measurements of your furniture to check if it will fit in that particular property. Taking a camera with you is always a nice idea. You can take pictures of the property which can help you to make up your mind later. Furthermore, it is better to go with someone, for security and for a second opinion.

When to go for a viewing:

Arranging for a viewing in the evening or weekend is an excellent idea, as you will be working the other time. But at the same time if you have to visit more than one property then taking off some time from work is also a good idea. You must consider that you should never arrange for a number of viewings on the same day, it might be fruitless. If you approve of the property after the first viewing then you should arrange for some more viewings, all at different times of the day and week. As you can have better idea of the neighborhood, the surrounding, amount of daylight and security at night.

Before making a decision you must also check for the local stores and supermarkets in the area, proximity to public transport and schools/universities (if you have kids).

It is obvious that moving into a new house is a demanding job. So you must take your steps carefully and make the right decision.
