A few tips can help you use to choose a sunny home

Have you noticed that some properties only have viewings in the morning? Isn't this a bit early for those of us that like a weekend sleep in?


There is often a legitimate reason. Go back to the same property at 2pm and its probably sitting in deep shade. Agents are there to sell you the property, not show you the weaknesses. For this reason we suggest you go back to the property three to five times, before you commit to a purchase. This will help you choose a sunny home.


HOW CAN YOU MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE A SUNNY HOME?


One thing that's really annoying is discovering that the house you've just spent your life savings on, gets no afternoon sun.


Visit the property at 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm in the summer months. On each visit have a really good look at where the sun is and how it has moved across the sky.


Think about how different this will be in summer and winter months, when the sun moves across a different part of the sky.


IT'S ALSO IMPORTANT TO LOOK FOR SHADING


Shading from trees, nearby buildings, or other objects can also impact how much sun a house will receive. Take note of any large objects (especially close to boundaries) that may shade the house and/or yard during the day, and consider how this will impact the amount of sun the house receives.


Finally, inspecting the house multiple times can also give you a chance to assess the neighborhood and its surroundings. You can observe the traffic patterns and noise levels at different times of the day - these may impact your quality of life in the new home.
