The moving process

The first thing to do when considering moving is to establish how much you can borrow so that you can effectively determine what your upper range is and focus your search on those properties that are within your budget. 

You should also consider if you are willing to buy your new home in advance of selling your existing property or if you prefer to have sold your house in advance of making a commitment to buy. Your decision in this regard will be determined by market conditions and your own personal circumstances and objectives. 

What to do when moving

In many respects, moving house is like buying for the first time, but there are more things to do since you are making two transactions (buying and selling) instead of one. You still need to appoint a solicitor, but you may be able to strike a deal for him or her to advise on both the sale of your existing home and the purchase of your new one. As mentioned above, you should have finance in place and can seek approval in principle for the amount that you require.

One of the most important decisions to make, apart from finance, is to decide who will sell your existing property for you. Our sister company, Douglas Newman Good, has branches across the country and in-depth local knowledge in each of them.
