how to buy a house

When you read anything about how to buy a house, the much quoted three golden rules are location, location, location. But some locations are right for some and wrong for others. The fact is we all want to live among like-minded people, with similar interests. 
Whether you’re an arty, intellectual type, a captain of industry or a dread-locked beach bum, we can point you in the right direction, or even shine some light on places you might want to avoid like the plague!
