Here are a number of things you’ll need to consider when looking for a new home to help you choose the right type of property for you.

Choosing the right type of property for you

The Size
This is going to be a big factor for the majority of people, given that the size of property they need will often dictate where they move to. For example, if you need plenty of space, you’re more likely to want to move into a house, whereas if you’re not too fussed on the amount of space in your property, an apartment or small studio might be fine for you.

Accessibility issues
For those of you with elderly or disabled relatives living with you, accessibility issues will need to be considered. Bedsits and ground floor flats are the most common type of property used by those with mobility problems, but adapted houses can also work well.

Your Budget
The bigger the property, the more expensive it’s going to be. If you only have a small budget, then you’ll need to opt for a smaller, more basic property in order to save yourself some money. This will often be a deciding factor between different types of properties for many people.

How Often You’ll be Home

If you’re not likely to be home too often through work or family commitments, or even because you enjoy the great outdoors, then you might consider simply sharing a house with others, or investing in a smaller property because your heart doesn’t really lie there.

Pets, family, and other commitments
Big families, plenty of pets or plans to be a foster parent (amongst other things) will dictate the type of property that you’re likely to invest in. This is going to be a big thing to consider due to just how much this can impact the type of property you’ll be using.

Your lifestyle
With more and more people taking steps towards a minimalist lifestyle, so many people are choosing to live in smaller properties just to fit in with their lifestyle, and we think this is great! Although you might not immediately think to consider your lifestyle when you’re choosing a property, it’s not a bad idea!
