Renting Before Buying: Yes or No?. There are many things to consider when buying, selling or renting a property, and it can all get a little overwhelming at times. Here's property expert Phil Spencer to answer some of your property related questions, such as whether renting before buying is worth it.
Q1 - Should I rent before I buy a house? Or is this a costly mistake?
Renting before buying isn't necessarily a costly mistake. There are many issues surrounding renting, but it can be a very costly mistake if you buy a house and end up regretting it. Those who rent before they buy avoid this situation.
Q2 - How can I add value to my house?
If rooms in your house are considered "too small", you can't magically make them any bigger. However, can make them seem bigger through a few creative lighting and presentation choices. Buyers are always attracted to light and space, so exploiting these two factors will help increase the property's value.
Q3 - Is it best to buy a flat or a house if you're a first-time buyer?
A freehold house holds more freedom, but you will be responsible for the upkeep for the entire thing. Look for opportunities to add value - these are more readily found within a house than a flat, but that doesn't mean adding value to your flat is impossible.
