Summer holiday viewings: how to keep little house-hunters happy

Wednesday, 4 July 2018

If you’re house hunting during the summer holidays, and you have a family, chances are you’ll be viewing potential homes with the kids in tow. If this sounds like a recipe for disaster, think again. Viewing houses with your little (or big) ones can be a really positive and useful experience.

Viewing houses with your children means they feel included in the process from the start, and since they will be living in the house too, their input can be really valuable. Kids often feel anxious about the “unknown” aspect of moving house, so actually being able to have a say in what happens can help them feel calmer and more in control.

Seeing your kids in a property can also help you visualise how comfortable the whole family may (or may not) be there and give you a clearer picture of how family life would work in the house.

To make your summer holiday run a little smoother, we’ve put together a list of ways to keep the kids happy and engaged whilst house hunting.
