It always feels impossible to get all the ‘ducks in a row’ when planning a move. Should you wait until you find the perfect home before listing your current property? Should you wait until you have an offer before you start looking?
OUR ADVICE: make sure your property is listed as soon as possible when deciding to move.
If you have a property to sell, make sure it is on the market!
At best, some Vendors may not wish for you to view if you aren’t on the market yourself. At worst, another buyer might beat you to the property you want. When you DO offer on a home you want, you are in a good position if you can tell them you already have a buyer waiting or even just lots of interest on your home.
At the very least, have a valuation. It’s important to have an idea of what your home is worth in the current market so you can plan your finances for the onward move you’re dreaming of!
If you will be buying with a mortgage, make sure it is in place.
An offer can only be provisionally accepted from a buyer that can’t prove they have the funds, and any delays could result in a better prepared buyer pipping you to the post!
Even if you will only be applying for a low amount, or transferring the mortgage from the sale of your current property, if you can show you have the funds in place the Vendor will know you are able to proceed, increasing your chances of having YOUR offer accepted over another buyers.
TIP OF THE DAY: It is ALWAYS worth visiting an independent mortgage adviser to make sure you are getting the best deal.

One last thing…
You’ve got your mortgage agreement, you’ve got your property on the market, but nothings happening. It’s time for a second opinion.
If your property has been on the market a while and you still haven’t received a reasonable offer something has to change. Has your agent updated your property photographs recently? Do your current photographs do your property justice? Are you receiving detailed feedback that explains where your property might not be meeting expectations for buyers? Is your agent pushing for a reduction?
A reduction could cost you THOUSANDS. A second opinion is FREE.
