New Year is synonymous with fresh change, as people around the globe set resolutions to make improvements to their lives.

One thing people often resolve to do in the new year (along with the old stalwarts of getting fitter and looking for a new job) is to find their dream home. Indeed, major property searching websites in the UK always report an increase in traffic from Boxing Day, showing that people start to look for a new home whilst their Christmas tree is still up and there are leftovers in the fridge.

If looking for a new home is top off your to-do list for the New Year, the award -winning Tick Property Group recommend the following 3 things to get you off to a flying start:

1. Set Your Budget

This applies whether you’re looking for a new rental property or you want to buy. Look at what you can afford and what changes you may need to instil now to make getting your dream home a reality.

2. Be Specific

Are you looking for a flat or a house? Do you want one bedroom or two? Do you need to be near a railway station for commuting, or is a parking space on your “must-have” list? The more specific you are in your search, the more likely you are to find what you’re looking for without any surprises along the way.

3. Ask Questions

Once you’ve decided on a location and know the type of property you’re after, you should then have a think of all the questions you’ll need answers for. How much deposit do you need to pay? How long does the process take between application and getting the keys in your hand? When should you give notice on your current property? The more questions you have, the better. You’ll be fully prepared for your move, and the only thing you’ll have to worry about is unpacking your belongings.
