First-time parents? Tips to help you move house


Congratulations, you're having a baby - the beginning of your new life, and a motivation to sell your property and be happily settled in your new home well ahead of the due date for the new arrival.

Your Purplebricks Local Property Expert will understand your situation and ably support and advise you every step of the way. It's in everyone's best interest to ensure the process flows smoothly with minimal stress for you as parents to be and that's where the Purplebricks experience shines through.

As ever, the most important element of getting the ideal sale is to know your buyer. Your Local Property Expert will give you great advice on this. However, I can let you into a secret, your ideal buyer is...You! That is, the person you were when you bought your home in the first place... before the magic happened and parenthood came knocking on the door.

So what are your priorities for achieving a good, fast sale? Think back to when you bought the place. What attracted you to it? What made it perfect for the lifestyle you had then and how have you changed it since you moved in?
