Forres House Viewing

When viewing a Forres home for the first time, it’s important to go beyond the obvious and inquire about important aspects of the property. You want to know everything about the property, from the water pressure and windows to the parking options and noise.

Consider an overnight stay in Moray or as close to a Forres property you’d like to buy to get a feel for the neighbourhood.

Before putting pen to paper, it’s wise to conduct some research on the area you wish to purchase in, regardless if you’ve living in Forres your whole life, as every street is different.

To get a feel for a Forres house you’re looking to purchase, it’s recommended to spend a minimum of 30 minutes viewing.

Because of the high demand for housing in Moray, viewing appointments may be limited. Schedule your Forres house viewings when you’re well-slept and off work.

Thoroughly inspect the Forres house exterior by walking around. Inspect the roof for loose or missing tiles, damaged guttering, and wet, hairline cracks in the walls.

It is not required that the Forres seller disclose any defects. They can attempt to conceal them. Some common examples of cover-ups include painting over damp mould or using furniture or rugs to hide holes in the wall or floor.

Viewing a Forres house multiple times is still recommended, even in a market where properties are selling quickly, so you can catch and resolve issues.

Before you go Forres house-hunting, it’s a good idea to speak with a mortgage broker to find out how much you can borrow and set a manageable budget. Look at the prices of housing around Forres and the greater Moray area against your spending limit to gauge whether Forres is an affordable place to buy a new home.

It is common practice to set up a down payment (deposit) equal to five per cent of the purchase price of the Forres home you wish to purchase. Putting down a larger down payment allows you to apply for mortgage deals with reduced interest rates.

For first-time Scotland buyers, the government will match 25% of their savings (up to £1,000 per year) if they put money into a lifetime ISA.

Mortgage companies often ask for a “valuation survey,” which is distinct from a home inspection in that it does not assess the Forres property’s current condition. Even if you pay for a valuation survey, you might not see the results; the survey verifies the Forres property’s approximate value for the lender.

Always get a second opinion when purchasing a Forres home to find any hidden problems.
