Buyer Advice
  • paragraph

    Unless buying a brand new home most people buy houses through estate agents. However before rushing into a purchase you need to know how much you can afford and, at the same time, consider what you REALLY want from your first/next home. The following section should help give you a clearer idea.

    FIRST THINK ABOUT WHERE YOU NEED TO LIVE

    • Do you need to be near work?
      • Consider - The further you live away from work, the more it will cost you in time AND money to get there.
    • Do you need to be near relatives?
      • Consider - Do your relatives baby sit for you? Are you needed to help care for a relative?
    • Do you need to be near a particular school?
      • Consider - Even if you don't have kids now, you may well do in the future, so think about where you would prefer them to be educated before you buy. A good school is surely worthwhile.
    • Would you prefer to be near friends?
    • Would you prefer to be near shops and other facilities?
    • Do you need to be near to a bus stop, sports club, gym, nursery, etc?
    • Would you prefer to live in a town or village?
    • Do you like the idea of living on an estate?
    THEN THINK ABOUT WHAT TYPE OF HOUSE?
    • What type of house would you like?
      • Terraced, Bungalow, Flat, Detached, Semi
    • Would you like a brand new or pre-owned home?
    • What floor plan do you prefer?
      • Traditional or Modern style
    • Are you into DIY?
      • Consider a home which needs improving could ultimately make you a useful profit. However you will need the resources to finance a DIY project. Have you got the resources?
    AND WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE IN YOUR HOUSE?
    • Double Glazing?
      • UPVC, Hardwood, Aluminium?
    • Central Heating?
      • Gas, Electric, Solid Fuel, Oil?
    • A nice Kitchen
      • What do you like?
    • Fireplace
      • What do you like?
    • Bathroom
      • Is a shower a necessity?
    • Ensuite bathroom?
    • Hallway?
    • Decor - Modern or Traditional?
      • Consider - Would you be willing to redecorate to your taste. Or would you prefer ready to move into with little to do?
    • Do you intend to have/add to a family in the near future?
      • Consider - Is it worth buying a bigger home in which you can also live happily with a growing family?
    • How many bedrooms do you need now and in the future?
    • Where can you park your car(s)?
      • Is a garage essential?
    • Would you like a garden?
      • or would gardening be a chore?
    • Do you need plenty of storage?
    • Do you need a hobby room or extra space?
    • Do you need a study?
      • Do you work from home and need an extra room or space to do so?
    • Do you regularly have people to stay?
      • and need an extra bedroom?
    • Do you need a dining room?

    CREATE A PLAN

    Why not prepare a list with two columns one containing what I/we

     WANT IN A HOUSE - DON'T WANT IN A HOUSE

    This will help you build a picture of exactly what you want from your first/next home and allow you to quickly eliminate those homes which don't meet up to your requirements. Without proper planning many people will move into a home and then find it does not meet with their needs. Avoid this by planning now. Once you have a clear picture of what you want, use the HOMES TO BUY button to search for a home on this website, call into any of our branches to browse through sales particulars or read our ads in the local press. Once you see something you like, contact the Dowen branch involved to arrange a viewing. Many people prefer to view a selection of homes to get a good idea of what is available. Finally you will find the home of your dreams. The way forward is then to make an offer to the estate agent.

    PROPERTY TO LET ?

    LOOK NO FURTHER THAN DOWEN

    Letting is a good way to obtain a regular income from a vacant property. People choose to let for a variety of reasons, for example they may be unable to sell the property and therefore decide to let instead; they may be working away for a period of time and intend to return to the property in the future or simply may have decided to invest in a property in the hope of receiving a better overall return on their capital.

    All our branches offer an individual letting service with experienced personnel whose aim is to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

    We offer a choice of service:

    Management :

    We find the tenant, complete all documentation then manage the property on a day to day basis for a monthly management fee (usually taken as a percentage of the rent collected). We deal with the day to day needs of the tenant, attend to repairs and other related matters. Your bank account will be credited monthly with any rent collected.

    Tenant Finder :

    We find the tenant, complete the initial paperwork and prepare the lease then you manage the property thereafter. For this service we charge a single one off fee.

    OUR INTENSIVE MARKETING INCLUDES

    24/7 advertising on DOWEN.CO.UK where our top quality presentation generally includes a photographic slideshow, location map, route guide and local schools information.24/7 advertising on RIGHTMOVE.CO.UK the most popular property portal in the UK, Property presentation via in-branch brochures and static displays. Motivated and enthusiastic lettings agents. Each is a well-trained professional with good local knowledge and a commitment to everyday exceptional customer service.

    FREE VALUATION

    If you are ready to let please contact your nearest Dowen branch and ask for a free valuation. Our valuer will be delighted to tell you about our lettings service, your expected expenses and what we, as your letting agent, can do for you.
