Season 1 Episode 2

Episode two of our property podcast looks at preparing to buy a house.

Preparation is key to buying any property successfully. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of house hunting. But, you’ve got to remember that this will probably be the biggest shopping expedition of your life and there are many things that can go wrong along the way. Planning is an absolute must.

What’s discussed?

Phil shares his advice with co-host Chris Ducker on the importance of planning as much as possible before you even start looking for your dream home.

Phil and Chris talk through everything from establishing a budget right at the beginning of your journey, to mortgage applications, finding a good solicitor and much more.
