A few things I muse on when viewing properties.

Featured

 

How safe would I feel walking home from the tube?
Can the iPhone be visible or would I only venture out in full Kevlar?

How resaleable?
Would even Purple Bricks baulk at listing it?

Structural soundness?
Indoor mushrooms and I am onto it.. more than that, GET A SURVEY.

Sound pollution.
Am I vibrating?

Storage space.
The hoover and ironing board ARE OUT warning klaxon.

Same road as a school?
Six weeks in and you’ll spend night and day plotting Yummy Mummy annihilation.

Garden office.
Sad. Cold. Damp. Sad.

Area – the ‘people like us’ test.
How many sourdough outlets?

Convenient location.
The Ocado, Deliveroo and Uber test.

Attic conversions.
There’s a reason they were attics.

Common areas.
How common?

Mezzanines.
Stupid.

Lower ground flats.
Smell of damp and a view of ankles.

‘Needs updating’.
How bad is the smell of wee?

Neighbours.

LEAVE MEANS LEAVE poster in the window?
The modern day Asda trolley in the front garden.
