4 Tips When Looking at Properties for Sale in Wythenshawe

If you are looking for properties for sale in Wythenshawe, here are some helpful advice and tips to guide you through the process.

Wythenshawe is a large suburban area in south Manchester, with a population of more than 80,000 people. It is one of the most diverse and vibrant parts of the city, offering a range of amenities, transport links, green spaces, and cultural attractions. If you are looking for properties for sale in Wythenshawe, here are some helpful advice and tips to guide you through the process.

Know your budget and priorities

Before you start your property search, it is important to have a clear idea of how much you can afford and what kind of property you are looking for. You can use online tools to get an estimate of how much your current home is worth, and a mortgage calculator to see how much you can borrow and what your monthly payments would be. You should also consider other costs such as stamp duty, legal fees, survey fees, moving costs, and maintenance costs.

If you don't have a home to sell, you will need a substantial deposit - usually around 10% of the purchase price.

And with a budget in mind, you can narrow down your search by deciding what your priorities are.

For example, do you need a certain number of bedrooms or bathrooms? Do you want a garden or a garage? Do you prefer a new build or an older property? Do you want to be close to schools, shops, parks or public transport?

Research the area and the market

Wythenshawe is a popular place to live, and you should research the area thoroughly before you make an offer on a property, to make sure it suits your lifestyle and needs. You should also research the local schools if you have children, the local amenities, and more. It's also worth researching how the local property market is performing, including for sale and sold prices, and buyer demand.

It would help if you also visited the area in person at different times of the day and week, to get a feel for the atmosphere, the traffic, the noise, and the neighbours. You can also talk to local residents, estate agents, and community groups to get their opinions and insights on living in Wythenshawe.

View properties carefully and compare options

When you find properties that match your criteria and budget, you should arrange viewings as soon as possible, as Wythenshawe properties can sell quickly. You should view properties carefully and critically, looking for any signs of damage, defects, or potential problems. You should also ask questions about the property's history, condition, features, and costs.

If you see several homes – and this might include flats for sale in Wythenshawe - you will need to compare them so take photographs so you can remember what you liked - and didn't like! - about each one.

Make a realistic and informed offer

When you find a property that you want to buy in Wythenshawe, you should make an offer that is realistic and informed. You should base your offer on the property's value, condition, features, and demand, as well as your budget and circumstances. You should also be prepared to negotiate with the seller or their agent, as they may reject or counter your offer. You should be flexible and reasonable, but also firm and confident. You should also be ready to provide evidence of your finances, such as a mortgage agreement in principle or proof of funds.

This is where the expertise of the friendly team at Bergins will help since they have more than 20 years of experience in selling homes in Wythenshawe.

Follow the legal process and complete the purchase

Once your offer is accepted by the seller, you should follow the legal process of buying a property in Wythenshawe. This involves hiring a solicitor or conveyancer to handle the contracts, searches, surveys, and transfers. You should also arrange a mortgage if you need one, as well as a home insurance policy.

You should also keep in touch with the seller or their agent, as well as your solicitor or conveyancer, throughout the process, to make sure everything is progressing smoothly and on time.

Properties for sale in Wythenshawe

The final stage of the process is completion, which is when you pay the remaining balance of the purchase price, receive the keys, and become the legal owner of the property.

You should also arrange the moving date and transfer the utilities before moving in and celebrating your new home in Wythenshawe!

Dear Tony and Mike Guys I just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for all you have done to help me with the sale of my home.After trying to sell my house for a year with other agents and getting nowhere, you sold it after only three days at the asking price.You called me when you said you would.You answered all my questions and went beyond what I would of expected. A brilliant brilliant service I can't thank you enough. I wish you both the very best for the future

Dear Tony and Mike I just had to write to say thank you once again for everything you have done for us. The thought of having to sell my late fathers house was filling me with absolute dread, having never bought or sold a property before I didn't know where to start. From the moment I met you though I felt completely at ease, you took all the stress and worry away and within 24 hours the house had been sold and you had arranged a lovely solicitor to take care of the legal side. I'm still amazed at how smoothly everything was, especially as I have 3 siblings who were also involved in the process. I keep seeing houses that have been on the market for a while and I want to knock and say, "get in touch with Tony and Mike at Bergins, they'll soon have your house sold". Thank you again guys for everything, you run a top class business
