Try before you buy!
Geoff and Sarah were told by their estate agent that a home they wanted to buy had good transport links – but not all was as it seemed.
Geoff and Sarah looked at a lovely home that was – according to the estate agent – a short bus ride away from the city centre, where they both worked.
On closer inspection, after they had tested the journey, during rush hour, it transpired that although the city centre was not far as the crow flies, the bus actually took a round-about route that would have made their commute into a daily torture. They did not buy that house, instead opting for somewhere with better connections.
