If your requirements are more investment focused and you're looking to purchase a property to let, we also provide expert advice on purchasing buy-to-let property.

Before you look to buy, put yourself in a position to buy, qualify yourself for a mortgage as soon as possible. When buying a property, it is worth providing your estate agent with as much information as possible, from your property being chain free to your readiness to proceed with the purchase.

Research your location, the local schools, shops, transport and neighbours, to get a good feel of what it will be like to live there.

If you find your ideal home and it is priced correctly, consider offering the full asking price, to avoid losing out. By offering correctly and accurately for your desired property, you stand a much greater chance of securing the house without being outbid or rivaled.
