Buyers Cautioned to Take Time Over Property Decisions

Following this story in the Daily Mail about buyers making snap decisions due to a faster moving property market, Pagan Osborne Property Director, Karen Turner, has the following advice for prospective buyers

“Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make so we would definitely recommend people give it serious consideration and believe the majority of people do so.

“A lot of research is now carried out online ahead of viewing a property so people will already know whether or not a property is likely to be suitable for them before they even step inside. Arriving at viewings armed with this information undoubtedly speeds up the process and this is important.

“Buying a home is a decision which needs to suit both the heart and the head. It is important to consider all the factors living in this property would mean for your life in the coming years and it also needs to feel like home.  A wish list is always good to have as it helps keep you focussed on what is important to you when buying a home.

“The market is becoming more buoyant and properties are moving quicker. While we’re not suggesting people need to decide in half an hour, it is important to find a balance which will ensure buyers do not miss the opportunity to move into their dream home.”
