Whether you’re moving out of your family home for the first time or just simply fancy a change, it can be hard to find suitable properties within modest budgets these days, and so you could probably do with all the help you can get, right? Well, luckily for you I’ve been involved in this industry for the last 5 years, and this has led me to pick up on a few tricks of the trade. Since I’m such a nice bloke, I thought maybe it would be wise for me to write a short article offering up some sound advice. There’s no need to thank me for this, although it would be cool if you left a comment if you have time.
Anyway, before I get into the nitty gritty, I just wanted to say how happy I am to see you’ve decided to try something new. Personally, if I live in the same property for more than a couple of years I start to feel trapped, and often my professional life begins to suffer. It’s important we all feel content with out living arrangements, as failing to achieve this can result in a lack of motivation in all other areas of our lives. So, if you want to learn about the best techniques for getting the best deal on a home rental, read on…
Set Your Budget And Stick To It
Even if you spot an amazing property at your local estate agency or online through websites like SafeLets, it’s vital that you never go over budget. Agreeing to repayments you can scarcely afford is a sure fire way of ensuring you have a hard time. Instead, you might like to try some negotiation tactics with the parties concerned in an attempt to knock them down. If this doesn’t work, it simply isn’t meant to be and so you should begin looking for alternative accommodation.
Decide On Exactly What You Need
Notice I used the word “need” instead of “want” in that title? This is because many people overreach themselves and opt for something far too big or flashy, eventually having to relocate long before their contract expires. Think about it; do you really need a 4 bedroom home when there’s only two of you living there? Stop worrying about what your friends and neighbours will think and start worrying about your finances.
Be Ready To Walk Away
Whenever you view a property, it’s important that you consider this visit to be more of a test drive. You see; if you visit a garage to check out the cars on offer, you don’t simply purchase the first one you see on aesthetics alone now do you? Take the same approach to finding the perfect home, and you should stand in good stead. If the landlord or estate agent isn’t willing to negotiate on price, simply say your goodbyes and leave. You never know; they might change their minds when they see how serious you are about lowering the costs.
If you follow all this advice, you should have little trouble finding somewhere suitable in a matter of days.
Good luck with everything, and don’t forget to send my invite for your moving in party!
