Tips for finding your dream home

As a nation obsessed with property, we can spend hours surfing the internet looking for our dream homes.  For many this dream turns into a reality once they stumble across “the one”.

To indulge your property delights here are a few useful tools on Rightmove, the UK’s number one property website, which can help you find your dream home to buy or rent:

Draw a Search

For those that know exactly where they want to live, Draw a Search is a saviour. Simply draw the exact area you are interested in on a map, and, hey presto, it will show all properties for sale or to rent in your search area.

Property Alerts

We all like to be the first to know when a new property to buy or rent comes onto the market, and registering for property alerts allows you to do just that.  You’ll receive an email when a new property matching your criteria is added to Rightmove.

Surfing on a Mobile

Whether you are commuting, on your lunch break or sat in front of the TV, jump onto the Rightmove mobile site or their mobile app to start an effortless search and enjoy swiping through their image gallery.

Mortgage Calculator

Keen to see what you could afford?  Try the mortgage calculator to see where your budget could take you.  It will help you work out your likely monthly payments based on different interest rates and repayment terms, helping you set a budget for your dream home.

Property Valuation

If you have a property to sell or let, it is now really easy to request a valuation from local experts in your area.  Simply complete the form and invite up to four agents to arrange a valuation in your home.

Most importantly, enjoy looking for your dream home to buy or rent – you never know what gems you might find.  Happy home hunting!
