When to Go for Viewing a Property in Edinburgh and Steps to Take Before Arranging Time

By KateForbes Subscribe to RSS | February 20th 2012 | Views:

Buying a house is one of the most important decisions in your life. You must never make this decision hastily or you might end up repenting your entire life. Whenever deciding to buy a property, you must always take out time and do a detailed viewing of the property to see if it is everything that you want. An important decision like this must not be made just because the property looks alluring or because it looks good in pictures.

Steps to be taken before arranging for a viewing

First of all before arranging for a viewing you must contact the estate agent and get as much information about the property as possible. These day’s agents have floor plans, pictures, room dimensions, virtual tours etc. You should get these and spend some time studying them. Next, you should visit the area to have an idea of the neighborhood. Whether it is 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.

You must prepare a notebook before you go for a viewing. Make a check list of all the aspects you need to look into. Also take measurements of your furniture to check if it will fit in that particular property. Taking a camera is always a nice idea. You can take pictures of the property which can help you to make up your mind later. Moreover, it is always good 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 a good idea, as you will be working the other time. On the other hand if you have a lot of properties to view then taking off some time from work is also a good idea. You should never arrange for a number of viewings on the same day, it might be unproductive. 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. This will give you an idea of the neighborhood, the surrounding, amount of daylight, security at night etc.

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

Moving into a new house is a stressful job. So you must take your steps carefully and make the right decision.
