Excuse the play on words but the world has become besotted by the oh’ so popular television series Game of Thrones and though winter is not yet coming (Jon Snow’s famous line), buying a house represents a similar game of triumph and success when approaching the property market!
Buying a house is one of the most difficult, exciting and financially tiring processes anyone will endure at various stages of a lifetime. You may well be a first time buyer who only knows the bare minimum when it comes to jumping onto the property ladder. Purchasing a house whether your first or tenth is never an easy task and as with other games, there are always various pitfalls that cannot always be prevented. The property market is a tough game of competition from those who are more than willing to ‘gazump’ your original asking price, or whether you find out your mortgage broker cannot lend you the money you need to complete.
So to be sure that you understand each individual step, we have made your very own Game of Homes; the property snakes and ladders game. From start to finish, you have all the information needed to prepare you before embarking on your big adventure. Be cautious of those snakes who have the power to bring you back down! Research, money, time and patience are essential to possess when purchasing a house through an estate agent.
