Homebuyer Mortgage Advice in Scunthorpe 

First Time Buyers in Scunthorpe stepping into the mortgage world for the first time may find the experience a bit overwhelming. This is why it’s good to be prepared in order to make the most out of your house buying experience. Below are 9 questions to ask yourself as a First Time Buyer in Scunthorpe who’s looking to purchase a property.

1. How much interest has there been in the property? 

Before committing to any property, it’s a good idea to ask how many people have looked and enquired about the property. Because a mortgage will be one of the biggest financial commitments in your life, you need to know how you have left to make a final decision. If the property is getting a lot of attraction, you’ll need to make that final verdict sooner, rather than later.

2. Is the property chain free?

A property chain is when several transactions are occurring at the same time for the sale and purchase to go through. If the property is a part of a chain, this will have a significant effect on your mortgage process. When it comes to a new home, there is no onward chain.

All this can increase the chance of you moving in quickly especially if you are not part of a chain yourself. You can have more of an advantage as a buyer if you don’t need to sell your own property first because you won’t be interrupting the home buying process. It’s good to utilise this benefit when negotiating the property price.

3. What’s included in the sale? 

In some circumstances, previous owners tend to leave some items behind. These items can include electronic goods like washing machines, fridges, freezers, or things like sheds that have been left for the next occupant. This doesn’t apply to new build properties as they come as standard or agreed upon before being built.

The downside is for those who don’t want these items you’ll have to find a way to dispose of them. In the circumstance where you buying a new build property, there might be items you can buy that can be fitted and ready on moving in day.

4. What are the neighbours like?

Knowing whether or not your neighbours are good people can be the final factor in making that decision if you want to live on the property or not. After all, you and your neighbours will be the ones building a community, so it’s always best that everyone gets along with each other.

5. How much does it cost to run? 

Depending on the house and the location will factor in the costs. This is why it’s important to do your research and ask the right questions. Even things like how much the Council Tax is as well as the average spending on utilities. All this can be checked online by researching online or asking the seller.

6. Which way does the house face?

The direction the house faces can be an important factor too. If you enjoy relaxing in the garden in late summer evenings or reading books in natural light. You may find that having a south-facing garden is an ideal choice, but sometimes it comes with a larger expensive.

7. How much work will be required after moving in? 

Below are some things you may want to look into. 

  • How energy efficient is the property? 
  • Does it have any damp?
