Viewing Tips
  • DO make appointments to view the property before signing any documents
  • DO see as many houses as you possibly can before you make any decisions
  • DO debrief and consider your options. Weigh the pros and cons
  • DO NOT go to view any property on your own 
  • DO have someone go along with you to visit the property.  Along with having them there for safety reasons, you may find their opinion valuable 
  • DO NOT make appointments for later than 20:30.
