A great starting point for finding out about homes in your local market is to pick up a free local newspaper – these are usually available from agents and supermarkets on a weekly basis.

Why not just use the Internet?

Well the papers give you a broad overview of different areas, the price ranges in that area which you wouldn’t pick up from an online search for properties that tick your boxes and it also lets you know which agents work in that local area. You can then get more detail on their website if any of the properties advertised tickle your fancy.

Newspapers also do focused articles about different areas, usually highlighting local amenities and schools, which aren’t always apparent.

So to start you on your house hunt – read a newspaper. I promise, it will only take you 15 minutes and a cup of tea (and a pen) to circle all the properties that catch your eye, but will make you more knowledgable than if you simply carried out an Internet search.
