I have name changed so I don't out myself.

We've moved to Merseyside and are trying to figure out where to buy a house and which one to buy. We need to move quickly because we have to port our existing mortgage or else pay a fee of several thousand. But on the other hand we don't know the area very well and are working long hours so its hard to view. But I've been studying Rightmove constantly and it's doing my head in. So I have the cheek to turn to mumsnet for help.

Our budget is around £250k and we're looking for a place with at least two bedrooms and two reception rooms though we'd strongly prefer one more of each. We don't want a bungalow but don't mind a semi, a terraced or of course detached. We do want a nice garden or decent bit of land and we'd like a place with some character. Because of work we want to live on the southport to hunts cross train line and we want to be in a safe neighbourhood.

Ideas on neighbourhoods would be great. For example, is Crosby nice? Ainsdale? Any links to houses on rightmove would be amazingly helpful. Or any other advice please. Thank you!

Headless, I looked, the pub bar jumped out at me! grin

That's a great garden in that Davenham Road place you found.

Yes that was one of MadBusLady's that I want to look at. Amazing how gorgeous it is inside versus how ordinary the exterior is. I guess if you're creative you can make just about any house look great.
