Opening a savings account can be a good way to save up for your deposit. Take a look at our range of savings accounts.
Make friends with the agents. Calling and visiting your estate agents regularly will help ensure you’re the first to know when a hot new property hits the market.
Put aside a whole day, and do a number of viewings (six is the suggested maximum). Go on a weekday if you can – estate agents will give you more time than at the weekend.
Take your own pictures. These are much more useful than glossy agents’ shots. Film your visits on your phone, too. That way, you have something to refer back to.
