Waiting For My Dream Home

I wanted to write a post dedicated to me and my struggle to buy a house or in fact find the perfect one. Me and my boyfriend have lived together now for years and years and everything has been fine. We know that when we commit and actually get a mortgage together there will be no issues because we work so well together and in all of these years we have never even had an argument!

We living with my mum at the minute while we save for our deposit. We were going to move out and rent somewhere on our own but it just seems like a waste of money renting somewhere when we could stay at home for free and then we can save 100% of our money instead of giving it to a landlord.

Also, my mum is barely ever home because she works away, she probably comes home one or two weeks every fortnight and that is it. So, essentially we have our own place anyway. It took us a fair while to get the deposit together for our house. We had an idea in mind of how much we wanted to save and we were very harsh with ourselves and we soon achieved it. Then it was just a case of trying to find a house.

We know the area where we want to move to but we don’t want to jump into something if it isn’t exactly what we are looking for. Over the past few months there have been so many houses that have come up for sale but there have been certain things that have put us off. And, I refuse to buy something that I am not 100% in love with.

We speak about our dream house all the time so we know how we want it to be in our heads. People say that we are aiming too high for our dream home, but if I am going to be spending in excess of £600,000 on a house I want it to be perfect.

We aren’t in a rush to find a house. We are taking a relaxed approach to it. We have a lovely home where we are now and a huge benefit to us is that we already have our deposit sorted. Then one day when the perfect house does come along we can snatch it up!

I just wanted to write a short post on it because I know how hard it can be, we have struggled so much and had to scrape money to get our deposit together. I am hopeful for the next few months that we will find the ideal home and I will keep you posted on all the steps.

I just didn’t want any of you to think it was just you guys going through the struggle. If anybody wants to talk about it leave me a comment below or drop me a line on my email,
