Hello! I am moving to Sheffield in about a month, please tell me what area should I avoid (postcodes) in my search for the house. Also where is best to look for a house to rent: sites, Gumtree, zoopla, should I go to any real estate agency, can anyone recomend me a good one?I have so many others questions but one at a time. Thank you all!
Easier to say which areas to look at (rather than which to avoid) if you say what you're looking for.
Do you want vegan cafes or wine bars; are you looking for rural, city centre, housing estate, terraced or 4/5 bed executive?
What ages are the children (thinking schools)?
Sheffield is beautiful but it has challenges like all big cities and it is designed like a pie, rather than in concentric circles so some postcodes have both fantastic areas and awful ones. Therefore, it is better to search areas rather than postcodes.
Local agents are Blundells, Eadon Lockwood & Riddle, Haybrooks, Bloors, Lewis Wadsworth, Reeds Rains, Crapper & Haigh. I think they're all on Rightmove.
Whoa!!! Thanks for all the info. So, i saw S10 and S11 are the best, best houses, best schools and for what i understood safe, thinking about my children. But I can't afford it, i think. I don't have a job, i must fiind it. About the house, the top of the budget is 500-600 £, house, terraced, not central, 2-3 rooms. The kids are 2 and 12, but i will bring them in a few moths, after i put it all together: house, job etc. Bytheway, i am coming also with my brother, who is a nurse, any chance for him to find jobs there? Thanks.
Its been a while (few days actualul) but I was, I am preparing my departure, i Will be in Sheffield on 19th, so if it's no trouble i Will be asking you more then. Thank you all very much! I keep saying "thank you" but you really have helped me, i had so much thoughts, fears and you made me believe i can do it. So Thank you for now . ;) Mary
Meersbrook is a vegan haven, but I think your budget is quite right tbh. If you do end up there Carfield school is lovely, there's a massive park that has loads of community events and it's near a big virgin gym, which is great for swimming lessons. DONT use blundells they don't care if the house is falling apart around you. I used them for first six months in Sheffield then Gumtree to find s private rental.
My daughter is studying at an art school (she plays piano), i saw Parkwood Academy in S6 area is an art school and i think it would be good for her. Opinions about the school and/or the area. Thank you!
