A Buyers Guide

Date Published 17 November 2015

Buying a home is a huge financial commitment, there's plenty to think about so it can be difficult to know where to start. Read VA's simple buyers guide which offers you practical advice on buying a home.

Step1 – Finding a property you can afford.
It's a good idea to work out the amount you can afford to spend on buying a property and on your monthly mortgage payments. Mortgage affordability calculators can give you an estimate of how much you can borrow based on you income and outgoing.

Step 2- View properties& make an offer.
We have new properties coming on the market each week, so be sure to register your details with us so you are the first to view new properties. Once you have found a home you want to buy make an offer and we will pass that onto the seller and negotiate your behalf until the offer is accepted.

Step3- Organize a solicitor and surveyor.
A solicitor will handle the legal work around the property and the surveyor will survey the property to check for problems, which might impact on the cost of the home.
VA has a panel of solicitors who we can recommend for great service and advice. Ask a member of the VA team...
