Tips for Finding the Perfect Home in London
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.
London has something to offer everyone – it’s about finding what you want and taking positive, well thought-out steps towards your goal. And don’t restrict yourself to thinking inside of the box – inform your plans for finding your dream home that includes your hobbies, your favourite parts of London, the best shopping districts, the entertainment and cultural institutions and events that are on offer in each area you search in. It all adds up to the puzzle that you’ll piece together to make your ideal home.
With that in mind, it’s time to start doing some research and making a solid plan of action. So open a Word document or get a pen and paper and start writing down the things you want from your new home. And don’t be tempted to self-edit at this stage – you’re writing down a list of ideal aspects and there will be time to see where you need to compromise later. For now, it’s all about getting your ideas down on paper so you can start to make a feasible plan of action.
Use the internet and do some research based on your current situation – do you need to think about changing schools for your children? Maybe you only use the Tube and you need to make sure you’re within a short distance of a Tube station. If either of these things is relevant, note them down, and move onto the next item. Even the smallest detail can be important, and you can return to flesh the idea out in more detail in the near future.
It’s also important to work out what your core reason is for buying a new home. Hopefully, your intention is to move in and live it up in your beautiful new home or apartment. However, for some, buying a new home is a financial decision, which is relevant for people who are interested in the rent-to-buy schemes and house-flipping for profit. There are also many instances where someone wants to own a property in London because they love the city but they’re often away on business trips or they also live abroad. This is where Airbnb can be useful as their vacant London home can bring in an income.
As your plan develops you’ll start to see it form into something that you can feasibly undertake. You’ll probably have started putting some figures together, and within a matter of weeks and months, you’ve found the perfect home!
