First time buyers - tips for getting on the housing market
It’s a big commitment and a big decision, but buying your first home doesn’t need to be (that!) scary. Here at Barton Kendal, we have helped thousands of first-time buyers take those first steps on to the housing ladder in Rochdale. And, of course, we have all been first-time buyers ourselves.
The local market
We know the local Rochdale housing market. We know the areas and we know the houses, inside and out. We can help guide first-time buyers navigate the searching process, the negotiating process, and the buying process. We’re here for everything from that initial moment of committing to being a home-owner to the exciting move-in day when we hand over your keys.
Rochdale has multiple choices for all kinds of buyers. We know that not all first-time buyers are looking for traditional starter homes. First-time buyers are a varied bunch, and we can help those looking to buy to choose the right home for them, from flats and apartments, to terraced houses, semi-detached properties, newer builds, and doer-uppers. Some buyers want a ‘ready to move into’ property, with the interior exactly to their own tastes and low maintenance all round. Others are willing to do a bit of cosmetic decoration or upgrading where/if needed. Then there are the get stuck in first-time buyers who are willing to take on larger and/or more complex or challenging ‘projects’ that may require specialists’ skills, and additional budget. Our professional team have helped them all secure the right property over the years.
Some first-time buyers are looking for a property for a defined period of time (though life is never that predictable!). Others are seeking somewhere they can make their mark on and hopefully add value to. As a family-owned business, deeply rooted in the Rochdale housing market, we know the trends and can help you make those decisions both for now – and for the future.
