Buying a home is the single biggest purchase you’ll ever make. But how many of us really do our homework before making this huge commitment?

Unlike when buying a car, we can’t take our potential new home for a test drive round the block. The reality is that at best you might get a few quick viewings over the space of a couple of weeks before having to sign on the dotted line.

Unfortunately, this lack of research time can see many new home owners hit by unexpected problems that can drain their finances and leave them questioning whether they’ve made the right decision.

So how can you make sure that your dream home doesn’t turn into a nightmare? Are you aware of all the costs that have to be considered? What are the biggest mistakes that home owners make before buying a property and what are the key things you should be checking out before making an offer?

Log on to our WebTV show where Azy Saii, and Peter Turner from Experian discuss what you need to look out for and demonstrate a ‘one stop shop’ solution – showing you how to use tools like the new PropertyCheck website to make sure you make the right decision.

Azy Saii and Peter Turner from Experian PropertyCheck join us here live online at 3pm.
