My TOP house hunting tips!
Started thinking about where you'll live next year?
If the answer is yes, I'm here to help!
When I started looking for a house with my group of friends last year it was a pretty stressful experience and I want to help you avoid some of the mistakes I made.
My main piece of advice is don't rush. Good things take time and you don't need to sign for the first house you see; no matter how much your friends, landlords and estate agents try to rush you! I'd also suggest that you visit the Housing Fair in November and take time over the Christmas holidays to really think about where you want to live and WHO you want to live with. You'll always find a house; don't end up signing for something unsuitable.
If you've got any questions, speak to Accommodation Services who'll be happy to help you make the right decision for you!
