Leading developer David Wilson Homes has revealed its top tips for loved-up couples on the lookout for their new home in Nottinghamshire this Valentine’s Day.
Finding your dream home as a couple can result in clashes over what exactly that dream home is, so the five star homebuilder is giving hints and tips on how to find a property that’s perfect together at its Romans’ Quarter development in Bingham.
Buying a house may seem daunting at first and often people don’t even know where to begin, but in this handy checklist, the five star housebuilder has given its helpful hints and tips on how the process works.
Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes, said: “It’s natural that as a couple you might not always agree but when it comes to making what is possible the biggest investment of your life, it’s important you both get what you want.
“While you might have different ideas of what type of house you’re looking for, there are tricks you can use to make the best of the experience and buy a home you fall in love with.”
Among the properties available at Romans’ Quarter is the three bedroom Kennett; ideal as a starter home or a second step on the property ladder, and David Wilson Homes’ top tips for couples ahead of purchasing a property are:
Compromise is key
While compromising isn’t always easy, this is a home for both of you to enjoy together and wherever possible you should try to meet in the middle. Recognise what matters to your partner and make sure they do the same and communicate throughout the whole process.
Consider the best use of your future home
Your home needs to be adaptable to your needs, both present and future. Will you need a home office if one of you works from home? Are you planning on adding to your family? Make sure your home will suit what you’re both using it for.
Create a list of the must-haves
Both of you should make a wish list for your new home separately, do you need a guest bedroom and good transport links while your partner is more concerned about the size of the living room?
Go through your lists together and select features you both agree on to create a master list of must-haves, make these the priority when searching for your new home.
Get your ownership options clear
There are lots of different ways to own your home as a couple from joint ownership to tenants in common. Make sure you explore all of your options and choose an ownership option and a mortgage that works for you as a couple. Make sure you do your research and get advice on what will be the best option for each of you.
Rachael continued, “By following our top tips, couples can find a property that works for both of you avoiding stress and clashes.
