Well, it’s that time of the year, many of us are hoping for a fresh start in 2020 and what could be a fresher start to the new year than moving into a brand-new home. A new you are not truly complete without a new view, a new neighbourhood and a new house. If you’re thinking of moving into a new home in the new year, there are some things you should keep in mind so that you start your new journey on the right foot.
Summer and Autumn
If you’re looking to buy in the new year its worth considering the first seasons you come across in the property market will be summer and autumn. As things heat up early next year there will be a large supply of houses, but competition and prices will be at their highest. If you wait a little longer until its autumn, you will find prices will drop slightly with a drop in property listings and competition.
Consider Getting a Pre-Approval
Getting a pre-approval from a lender will ensure you’re approved for a home loan before you even decide on what house you want to buy. It gives you peace of mind and knowledge of what you can and can’t afford, saving you from many hours of stress.
Talk to a Mortgage Broker
A mortgage broker has many years of experience they can use to find the best home loan for you and best fits your personal circumstances and financial situation. They will save you valuable time and money before, during and after you purchase your new home.
Keeping in mind these considerations will give you the best possible start to house hunting in 2020.
