How to find your perfect Hertfordshire home

At Steven Oates our aim is to help you make the correct choices and best decisions when it comes to finding your perfect home in Hertfordshire so here are our top tips to ensure you find your perfect home. 

What type of property do you require? It’s important to scope out the local area so that you can judge what type of properties are available in which locations and at what cost. For example, Victorian properties may be located in one town, whilst new builds are predominantly in another! So, if you require a large Victorian property in location A, your research may indicate that you may only be able to secure that type of property in location B. It’s vital you research the market so that you have realistic expectations and are aware that you may need to compromise. 
TOP TIP: Think about what you truly need from your home rather than the extras you simply desire and be honest about it. For example, if you work from home, an office will be a need. If you have children, a garden will be a need. Whereas a desire could be a log burning stove or a conservatory. Both of which can be added to a property with little hassle. 

Do you need to be close to your place of work or your children’s school and are you willing to compromise on proximity in order to purchase your dream home? Think about whether you are prepared to compromise on specifics such as having a longer commute, living near a busy road or distance to amenities. It’s important you decide what is imperative to your happiness in your new home. 
TOP TIP: The right location is often more important than the right house. You can change a house and make it your home – but you cannot change its location.
