Ticking All The Boxes For Your Dream Home - Avoid Unseen Disasters

Given how long searching for a property can take, when you and your family finally stumble across one that seems too good to be true, it's only natural that an overwhelming euphoria engulfs you - but beware spontaneity.

Because this is such a life-changing decision, remember to stay grounded and make sure the property ticks all of your personal home boxes before going ahead with making an offer - put together a comprehensive checklist and go over it thoroughly.

Investigate the condition of the property - does everything appear to be in order?

Defects like cracks of dampness in the walls, badly maintained electrical work or plumbing could potentially lead to problems later on in the future.

Likewise, have a look at the surrounding neighbourhood. How close is the property to local shopping centres, transport hubs and schools? Is the street relatively quiet or quite busy?

These are just a few of the things you need to be looking for - so don't forget to see how the house measures up.

Taking the extra time to check everything out will ensure the house of your dreams doesn't turn into the burden from your nightmares.
