7 tips for a house viewing in Norwich

7 tips for house viewing in Norwich

Norwich is a beautiful city located in the east of England, and it offers a range of properties for those looking to buy a home. However, before you make the final decision to purchase a house, it is important to view the property carefully. Viewing a house to buy can be exciting, but it can also be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know what to look for. To help you out, here are 7 tips for a house viewing in Norwich.

  1. Take note of the location – The location of the property is an important factor to consider when viewing a house to buy. Take note of the neighbourhood, accessibility to transport links, and local amenities such as shops, schools, and hospitals. If you have children, you may want to check the availability of good schools in the area.
  2. Look beyond the decor – The decor of a property can be off-putting, but it’s important to look beyond it. Remember, you can always redecorate the property to your own taste once you have purchased it. Instead, focus on the condition of the walls, ceilings, and floors, as well as any potential structural issues.
  3. Check the size of the rooms – It’s important to make sure the property has adequate living space. Check the size of the rooms to see if they are large enough to accommodate your furniture and belongings. If the rooms feel small, consider whether you could knock down walls to create a more open-plan living space.
  4. Look for signs of damp – Damp can be a major issue in older properties, especially in areas like Norwich, where the weather can be wet and humid. Check the walls and ceilings for signs of damp such as mold, musty smells, and water stains.
  5. Inspect the plumbing and heating systems – Make sure you check the plumbing and heating systems when viewing a house to buy. Check the water pressure and temperature in the bathroom and kitchen, and ask if the heating system has been regularly serviced.
  6. Take note of the storage space – Storage space is often overlooked when viewing a property, but it’s an important factor to consider. Check if there is adequate storage space for your belongings such as cupboards, wardrobes, and shelving units.
  7. Don’t forget the outdoor space – If the property has an outdoor space such as a garden or patio, make sure you check it out. Look for any signs of damage, check the fencing and gates, and consider whether it’s big enough for your needs.

In conclusion, buying a property can be a big decision, and it’s important to take your time when viewing houses in Norwich. Use these tips to help you make an informed decision and find the perfect home for you and your family.
