  • First time buyer - long-term consdierations

    Hi all,

    I'm a first-time buyer looking to buy by myself, as such the properties I can afford are quite limited. I have found a new-build one-bed flat that is well within my price-range and suits perfectly location wise etc. However, I am being advised by others that buying a one-bed severely limits me in the long-term. I do have the potential of being sent abroad for a year or so with work, so how easy it will be to rent or sell it on are a factor for me. I guess my question is, broadly speaking, am I signficantly worse off with a one-bed new-build flat well within my budget, but accepting it may be difficult to sell it on etc, in which case should I wait to find a two-bed place, likely to be an older house/flat, that stretches me mortgage wise, based on the fact that I can make a better return in the long-term?

    Any advice you can provide will be most appreciated.
