- Prioritize! Decide on the features that you believe are most important to have for your first home.
When choosing your first home, it may be difficult to agree on which house you’d like since you both have varying preferences. That’s why agreeing on what you need before going house hunting is so important. Do you prefer location over size? Or do they prefer more rooms and a large backyard? Having a clear idea of what is important for you and your new life with your partner is very important.
- Compromising is key.
- Don’t rush it, ensure that you are ready.
- The legal side.
- Save money for renovations.
If you’re buying your first home, we suggest setting aside some funds for renovations, so that you can make that house your forever home. Doing renovations gives you room to personalise your space and to add your own ‘touch’. Plus, working together on small projects can help build a bond between you. #goals
