House hunting is either the most fun thing that you can do or one of the most stressing. On the one hand, it’s exciting, because there are just so many houses each so different from the next, and it’s interesting to imagine, each time, what you life would be like in each house. On the other hand, though, finding exactly the right house can take a long time, and this will start to tax on your mental strength – you might be tempted to just give up and settle for some hovel without a bathroom. This doesn’t need to happen, though. Taking your tim is the best thing to do, and you can speed up the process a little by knowing exactly what to look for. Reading house hunting blogs can be extremely useful, so here are our favourite blogs to read while house hunting.
