The process of looking, choosing and buying your first home can often be quite daunting. However, if you know what to look for, the home-buying process can be a breeze. Luckily, we are here to help with some points that will hopefully help you on your way to finding your perfect new home.
Getting to know your prospective neighbourhood is debatably the most important point when choosing your new home. After all, this is where you’ll be spending most of your time. If you’re looking at show homes in a certain area, be sure to get out and have a walk around the local area to get a feel for the place. Make a note of local shops, public transport links, parks, schools and the amount of public space. You’ll soon get that instinctive feeling if the area is right for you.
Unfortunately, even at First Home News we can’t see into the future and the best anyone can do is plan ahead for what could potentially happen. Will you be needing an extra bedroom or two for new arrivals in a year’s time? Are there any schools nearby? Has the house got a garden? How close by are the in-laws? These are all major factors to consider if you are thinking of starting a family in the near future.
Not just bricks and mortar…
We’re not going to lie, the quality of the bricks and mortar that construct your new home are pretty important too. This is why it is important to think about the house-builder who is actually building your home. Quality house-builders such as Keepmoat have built over 20,000 new homes and nothing stands the test of time like, well, time! Going beyond the house itself, Keepmoat create innovative and well-designed communities with the buyer in mind. The transparency and round the clock support Keepmoat provides will guarantee their first time buyer a comfortable and stress-free home-buying experience.
