First Time Buyer’s Guide from London Property Buying Agents

Entering the property market for the first time is tough. Most people don’t know where to even start. What’s important to consider? What do I look for? Is buying really the right choice for me? Your London property buying agents have all the answers.


What You Need to Know as a First Time Buyer


  1. You can’t do it alone


The London property market is not an easy thing to get involved in. There’s so much to know about the proper value of a home or flat, where you should be looking and a whole mass of other items to consider. Hiring a property consultant will help you immensely. I would imagine you’re no property expert, and you’re probably intimidated just by looking at the deposit required on some of the properties in London. Having an agent who can explain everything to you will help you find the perfect fit. We know everything there is to know about the London market, and we won’t let you get conned into buying something you don’t know anything about.


  1. Consider a new build or recently renovated property


If you’re a first-time buyer, the last thing you want to think about after purchasing a property is how much you’ll have to spend on renovations and repairs. A new build can offer you the peace of mind that you’re getting exactly what you see in front of you, no fault wiring and such to worry about. Similarly, homes that have been recently renovated are perfect for those who are looking for less financial stress. We love offering clients options of renovated places as they hold their old charm while still being a complete luxury property.



  1. Have you thought about renting?


Sometimes the rush of being a first time buyer can be so overwhelming that it’s important to consider if you’re actually really ready to buy. You definitely do not want to rush into it because buying property is a lifetime commitment. If you’re unsure of exactly what you want and feel as though you might be settling, it might be time to consider a rental property.
