How to find the perfect house this Christmas?

There are many people who come to a real estate agency in Madrid at Christmas looking for the house of their dreams. When choosing the right property, you have to take into account many factors. For example, it is essential to think about whether you will be having children, the income you have and your job stability, which areas you like to look at, etc. In any case, the end and the beginning of the year is a great time to start looking for a home.

Performing a comparative study is vital if you want to make the right choice. In this sense, there are a number of factors that must be taken into account to increase your success in finding the perfect house at Christmas. Among them, the most important are:

- Location. The location is a factor that influences the price very noticeably. In fact, before looking for a house, this is the first aspect that needs to be established, i.e. where you want to live. Keep in mind that not all properties in different neighbourhoods are priced the same per square metre.

- The size. Generally, the 80 square-metre flats with two or three rooms are the most in demand. In fact, most of the current demand is centred on properties between 50 and 200 square metres. Those that are below or above this range don't enjoy the same demand.

- The height. This is estimated on the number of floors. For example, with every floor addition, a further 3,000 euros will be added. Ground floor properties or single-storey homes are the most economical, while penthouses are at the higher end of the price bracket.

- The State of Conservation. New constructions, due to their greater energy efficiency and insulation, have a higher price than the older properties. In this sense, an EPC or the energy certificate is especially relevant. Between the highest and the lowest scale there may be a price difference of more than 15 per cent.

- The exteriors. Those homes that have good views and face south are the ones that enjoy most natural light and have a much higher price. It is, therefore, important to take these into account when buying a home. These factors can cause the price to fluctuate by up to 29 per cent.

Good connections in public transport, swimming pool and garage are other elements to take into account when looking for a home this Christmas.
