Once you have found the right type of accomodation for your needs, asking yourself the following questions can help when choosing your new home.

Common considerations include:

  • Is there accommodation available within your budget?
  • What are the local facilities like?
  • Will you be able to keep up your hobbies and interests?
  • What is the public transport like?
  • Will your friends or family be able to visit easily?
  • Do you like the area? Do you feel safe?
  • Will your new home be suitable or easy to adapt if your needs change in the future?
  • What type of heating system does it have?

When looking for a new home the internet can be a brilliant search tool, Anchor's website features many of the details listed above on our individual property pages.
