Finding the perfect home in London is all about striking a balance between your heart and your head. It’s wise to do as much research as possible as you build up your plan of action but it wouldn’t be called a perfect home if it’s just about planning and fact-finding. This is your passion project and you need to put all of yourself into the project, that way you’ll not only find the correct house for your budget, you’ll hopefully find the home of your dreams – one you’ll never want to move out of.
Sometimes inner-city life can take its toll – the pace, the noise, the traffic and pollution, it all adds up and can become overwhelming. We all have aspirations for our lives and they often include dreams of relocating to sunnier climates, as we drift off into thoughts of warm sand under our feet every morning or a rustic country village where the smell of fresh baking fills the air. And a few sirens later, we’re dragged back down to earth. But maybe, just maybe, 2017 is the year to start making those dreams a reality.
Anyone not living under a rock knows that a general election is looming. Instead of sitting it out until 2020, it’s 8 June 2017 on which we’re being asked to cast our votes into the ballot boxes around the country – three whole years earlier than anticipated and only a month away. But what should you expect if you own or are looking to own a flat or a house? How will this snap election affect the market, if at all? And is there any way of accurately forecasting such things in the first place? Let’s take a closer look at this issue and see what is and isn’t the case.
