  • Moving house? Prepare for a smooth exit

    With the move date circled on your calendar, it is time to plan ahead. If you are changing large furniture items, order now and arrange for them to be delivered to your new abode in sync with your arrival. Then get to work selling your old ones and see if you can make a thrifty return that you can put towards something nice for your brand new home. Set to work clearing out unwanted items (anything that is neither beautiful nor useful) and if possible allocate one room for box storage.

  • Moving house? Practice your poker face

    You’re almost there - your desired property is within reach. You’ve spoken to several developers, you’ve kept your extravagances in check and you’ve finally found a property that you can see yourself settling in. Time to sign on the dotted line.

  • Moving house? Location, location, location

    Property professionals say it is better to choose the smallest house in the nicest neighborhood you can afford. But let’s be realistic.

    Dreaming of a villa in Rehab? Got your eye on a penthouse in Degla? Whatever your reasons for moving house, do not attempt it without first heeding the advice on this page.

  • Moving house? Survey the area

    As a rule of thumb you should consider at least three properties before you purchase. If you find ‘The One’ straight away, good for you. Make an offer and use the cooling-off period to see what else is out there. At the very least you’ll be left in no doubt as to what a great decision you have made. Home seekers have various shop windows to choose from, including classified adverts in local newspapers, property websites, estate agents and word of mouth. The point is to ensure you have compared enough districts, developers, prices and styles to be confident you are getting the most for your money. Unlike a car, a wedding or a holiday, this is an investment for your future and most likely, your children’s future.
