Is there a checklist for buyers or sellers helping to decide what’s most important?
The process of buying and selling is a complex one, so it’s helpful for your research to have checklists to ensure nothing is forgotten. There are several online resources with checklists for individual aspects of the moving process, including what to consider as a first-time buyer, help to buy schemes, removals, speeding up conveyancing and so on.
When it comes to deciding what you want for your new home to help you narrow down the choice of locations and types of property available, this is largely down to personal choice, so a standardised checklist might limit your requirements. You can talk to an estate agent about what you want as they will have the experience to narrow down your options. However, you need to consider the size of the property (number of rooms, bathroom facilities, bedrooms, etc.), size of garden, proximity to public transport links, noise, entertainment options (e.g. cinema, pub, eateries, etc.), access to off-road parking, schools, speed of broadband, and so on. Consider making a list of what the property must have and an associated wish list so that likely compromises can be made.
