We know better than anyone that searching for your dream property can evoke sleepless nights.
But there are some simple ways to reduce stress and keep a level head whilst searching for your new home!
Get Yourself a Binder
You might not have had one since you went to school, but getting your hands on a good binder would be extremely helpful when house-hunting. Sounds silly but from our lengthy experience, we know that you’re going to come across a lot of documents, many of which you’re going to want physical copies of. Getting yourself a nice binder means keeping all those important documents in one place. Adding some handy page dividers will further help you to categorise and store your documents, making them super accessible and easy to find. We know it’s all about online storage these days, but there’s nothing wrong with kicking it old school.
Keep a Diary
While house hunting, you’re going to meet loads of new faces as well as make dates you’re going to have to remember. By keeping either a paper or electronic diary, you have somewhere to keep an organised list of future house viewings, contacts and important details so they can be quickly accessed and most importantly; remembered.
Lists, Lists, Lists
Making lists is a great way to stay organised, and when house hunting, lists can be a crucial part of staying level headed amongst all the information that is thrown your way. You can list imperative features you’re on the lookout for, or even just make a run of the mill, ‘tick off as you go along’ list. Writing all that stuff down leaves your head clear for other things, allowing you to be calm and ready to make important decisions.
