10 Thoughts:

When buying your first home

Is there a larger rollercoaster of emotion than buying your first property? The first step on the property ladder, and an even bigger step into official adult life…

 

1. It’s happening. You’re going to do it. You’re going to buy a house.

 

2. … How exactly do mortgages work?

 

3. Then you look at the numbers and the excitement dwindles.

 

4. ...Let’s put that aside for now though and start looking at all these pretty properties online.

 

5. So the viewings begin. And you start to understand the true extent of false advertising. 

 

6. And the small talk with the estate agent is wearing thin. 

 

7.  Until, out of nowhere, a hidden gem appears. So you lock-in that viewing AT THE EARLIEST. POSSIBLE. CONVENIENCE. 

 

8. OFFER HAS BEEN ACCEPTED. CELEBRATIONS ALL ROUND.

 

9. Now it’s time for the solicitors to get involved. Time to nod along and pretend to know what ‘conveyancing’ means.

 

10.  … But you’re also now a home owner. YAY!
