1. Do some prior detective work
A home is a place that you are bound to spend a lot of your time in, so it is important to make sure that you find a place that is the perfect fit for you. Have a stroll around the area and check out the atmosphere to see if it suits your vibes. Have a look and see if the property is close to public transport, shopping hubs, schools, or even if there are hospitals and health facilities in the area. This is especially important if you are checking out properties that are far from the inner city.

2. Thoroughly Inspect
Of course, every smart landlord will make sure that their homes are in perfect condition when you visit them. Make sure you pay attention to the small details- adequate power points, holes and cracks. Take notes at the defects and get a professional to check out something unusual or concerning.
Bringing along a family member or a friend so you have a second opinion on it is a great idea before you commit to a property.
