When it comes to buying a new home, there are several ways you can be a better buyer and reduce the chance of losing your new dream home.

First, get your finances in place:

  • If you are borrowing, get a mortgage agreement.
  • If you are a cash buyer, make sure you can provide evidence of your funds, such as bank statements or shares certificates.

Do you have a property to sell? Then being on the market, or having a buyer for your property will make your own offer stronger.

A good buyer will not make an offer to buy a new property without having sold their current property.

Know your chain details so you know how quickly you can sell and move – has the person that you have sold your property to, sold their property, and so on down the chain?

Remember, attending a property viewing is exciting but it can also make you slightly anxious. It’s always a good idea to invite someone to attend the viewing with you. At the very least it’s advisable to inform a friend or relative that you are viewing a property and the time and date of the appointment.

Lastly, find a conveyancer to manage the legal matters of your sale, so you are ready to move forward as soon as you agree an offer.
