Home Buying? Make Sure You Get The Right Home For Your Needs...

Home buying for most of us, will be one of the most expensive purchases we ever make, so ensuring we choose the right property for our needs, as well as accessing the best mortgage deal available is very important, as getting it wrong can be very stressful and expensive.

According to a new report released by Which? Money, nearly one in five homeowners living in the UK feel as though they made a mistake when buying their home – this can be from paying too much for their home to being tied into a mortgage that doesn’t meet their needs.
Which? Money, the consumer group, said that these disappointments include buying a home next to a noisy airfield (they thought it was a disused RAF station, and didn’t realise it was still used by gliders, which are towed by nosy tug planes), having nightmare neighbours, paying too much in the excitement for their purchase, or ending up with an interest only mortgage, rather than a repayment mortgage.

The report stated: ‘Buying a house is constantly topping the list of the most stressful life events.It can even age you by up to two years, according to some studies – so it’s important to get it right, and not live to regret your choice.’
