What to Look For When Looking For a New Home

It is all well and good deciding to sell your home, but in order to move house you also need to find somewhere new to live. There are some fantastic houses for sale in Cheshunt and Enfield and the surrounding areas we cover, but how do you find the right one for you?


What Do You Like About Your Current House?

One of the first things to consider is what you like about your current house. As you and your family already live there today and know what works well, it makes sense to consider keeping these types of features in your new house. For example, if you have decking or a patio area in the garden that has had lots of use it would make sense to look for a new house that also has this. You might find that the feature you like now is slightly different in your new house, but if it is something you have enjoyed then add this to your ‘must-have’ list for your new house.


What Would You Change About The House You Live in Now?

On the flip-side of this, what do you have in your house now that really grinds your gears? Do you hate the parking set up you have or the fact one of the bedrooms is too small? Think about what in your current home doesn’t work for you and your family and then look to ensure these are improved in any new house you decide you might like to buy.


What Other Needs Do You Have?

Depending on your motivation for moving, you might also want to take other factors into consideration. Do you want to be near the shops or other local amenities? Is there a school you want your children to attend? Put all of these together in a list and ensure that they’re taken into consideration when you start your property search.


Often when it comes to the house you decide to buy, it will come down to how much you love it when you first walk through the door. However, there is nothing wrong with having a list of features your new home must have – you’re far more likely to find a new home to fall in love with that way.
