How to find the correct location you want to live
- Deciding where to live is one of the biggest parts of searching for a new home and location will have a big impact on the type of property you’ll be able to rent with your budget.
- You’ll need to decide whether location or size of property is more important to you when you’re looking. Generally, the more flexible you can be about where you live the better your chance of finding a bargain. How flexible you can be will depend on your lifestyle of course.
- If you have young children then access to schools may be a big factor in where you look. However if you don’t you may find better properties with lower rents further away from popular school catchment areas.
- Being close to transport links and other local amenities is also worth considering. Do you need to be close to a supermarket, main roads, train station or sports center for example?
