My friend who just moved to the UK recently bought a house. She just emailed pictures of her lovely home and I was really in awe. Immediately, numbers started to ring in my head as to how much they got that home for. I’m not comfortable to ask, as I find it kind of tacky. So you know what I did? I did my research. I just needed to feed my inquisitive mind.
I found a lot of listings at WelcomeHome.co.uk. It’s amazing how, one can have every single detail at their fingertips in just a click of the mouse. Oh my, the real wonders of the internet. Aside from interactive maps, there are area reviews, and a detailed information about the properties listed.
Anyway, I saw homes in the Liverpool area, but what got my attention were the flats to buy in Liverpool. Like the one that’s situated in the business district of the city near the Moorfields Station. The features are awesome. The flat has large sash windows and a fitted kitchen. At Sheffield on the other hand, I got interested with detached homes. Houses to buy in Sheffield still abound even with Sheffield known as a place,where most people would want to get flats. A Victorian three bedroom terraced, bricked home caught my eye situated at the sought after Hanover Conservation area. It’s so lovely and charming and it’s listed for £250,000. I made my search the last, at the area where my friend lives right now. It’s at Brighton, the city located at the south coast of England. I wasn’t aware that this place is a popular resort with only 160,000 or more residents. One of the houses to buy in Brighton that I fell in love with as I was searching was, a detached home with bay windows and double glazed French doors leading to a manicured garden. The piece de resistance is a stone built open fireplace. Imagine relaxing in that garden! For £550,000, this beautiful home can be yours.
Now, I have a pretty clear idea of the costs of acquiring a home in the UK. My friend is so contented and happy of their choice. I wish I had that much money to invest, so I can snag one near my friend’s home. It would be nice to lounge around in the summer around my own English garden.
