Home Buying Tips - Viewings!

As your KW estate agent, I’ll arrange for you to visit the homes you’ve selected, together and in-person, to determine the best fit for you. Some of the common questions buyers ask are answered below.

Q1. How can I make the most of my time when viewing properties?

    Get an accurate idea of your price range, an estimate of your monthly payments and a mortgage in principle letter, so sellers will take you seriously when you make an offer.
    Discuss with me your “wants” and “needs” list. Think about what’s most important to you: the location or the house itself.

Q2. What should I expect when viewing properties?


    I accompany all viewings so typically I will meet you at the property, this really helps me get an understanding of what you are looking for.
    Homeowners usually are not home, so you’re free to spend as little or as much time as you want.
    Buyers often have a gut reaction to a home. First impressions count, but you can also consult me to learn more about home values and possibly to reevaluate your priorities in the context of what’s available in your price range.

Q3. How many properties should I see?

    Sometimes buyers find their future home the first time out and others look at 50 homes before they see one that checks all their boxes. It’s a good idea to see at least a few alternatives so you have some points of comparison, but sometimes you just know a place is where you want to live.

Q4. What should I look for when viewing?

    Look beyond the staging and decorative items to see the features and fixtures that convey with the house. 
    Check the condition of the home.Keep track with photos and notes. 
    Consider possible home improvements you might want to make so you can research costs later. 
    Don’t forget to check out the outside of the property and the neighbourhood. 
    Locate transport links, schools, shops, restaurants, parks and other amenities.

Facebook review from new homeowner in Romford.

After 4 month wait we finally got our first home. Thank you so much Peter for your professional advice and helped us with each steps. I still remember when the first time we viewing the property Peter prepared property information documents and send me 3D house viewing link of the property which is non of any other agency did this. This was very helpful and a very nice experience for me.Thank you so much again for your help Mr Peter Garland-Collins. Xinyi, New Homeowner.

Referral from a mortgage broker

All agents offer such great promises of what they will do but I’m unsure if they really live up to this but Peter was amazing all the way through & delivered on everything promised. Moving is a scary, unknown world to most of us but Peter always kept in touch, communication is the key. I honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more. I would recommend Peter to anyone without hesitation. I feel I should have at least one negative comment however I can’t think of anything. James S, Vendor.
