Your Move have put together a checklist of costs to think about when moving house. ‘Moving house is an exciting time but it’s easy to get caught out by additional costs that you may not have factored in to your initial budget, especially if you’re a first time buyer who is unfamiliar with the process.’
Costs such as deposit, removal costs and ongoing running rates are important to think about when buying a new property. However, when selling a property, estate agency fees, legal fees, stamp duty and surveys can add up. Stewardson Developments could help, with a fast, hassle free, cash sale.
Some tips for keeping costs down:
– Speak to a Mortgage Advisor to get the best rate you can.
– Depending on how much you have to move consider hiring a van and moving your possessions yourself. Try not to move during peak times too, these include summer holidays, weekends and towards the end of the month.
– Have a clear out prior to your move, this way you will have less to move and there’s also the potential to make money too.
