The importance of starting your house hunt early

When you think of winter time, the first thing that probably comes to mind is Christmas. However, many students and young professionals also use the winter months to get ahead of the game and start their house hunt for 2023/24. There are many benefits of securing your property early, and this blog will delve into them.

It's no secret that all the good properties go first. Why wouldn’t they? When you start looking early, you have a wide range of properties to choose from, meaning you can get the best value for money. We don’t recommend rushing into a decision, but when you spot something you love you’ll be ready to go! 

We understand that choosing a home is a process that takes time and patience- so sorting it early gives you time to decide and choose a place where you feel secure, peaceful, and at home.

Not only is this important for your mental health, but it’s also inevitably a huge aspect of your life. When you decide on a property and sign up, you know you’ve got the rest of the year to sit back, put your feet up and chill! Knowing everyone else is running around like headless chickens, you know you’ve secured your property and all that’s left is to move in next year!



Moving out of your home away from your family and friends is a big step when you’re studying at uni, and taking that stride towards independence can be hard work, especially when it comes to choosing your housemates. Doing this carefully might save you from bickering over bills, who’ll do the dishes, who should do the supermarket run, or whose turn it is to clean the toilet (!!!).

Usually, your friendships grow stronger once you’ve secured a property. You can allow yourself to get excited with your new friends and plan the year ahead! 


Top tip: We suggest taking your friends on a little day trip to the area you’re moving to. Grab a coffee, some lunch, and go for a walk to explore the area and get excited about the year to come!



When it comes to Summer time, all you want to do is hang with friends and catch a tan, right? When you sign up early, all your deposit and guarantor info will be sorted early in the year, leaving Summer for fun, fun and more fun! We have a super easy sign up process, where you are prompted regularly for everything you need. The process is fully remote meaning you don’t even need to leave your bed!
