Buying a Home – Why did we choose this house?

Hi again! We found out last night that we are going to exchange today! Two days earlier than planned! (And there was me worried about meeting our deadline), so I thought I would give a bit of info about why we decided to go for this house, as quite a few factors came into it.

Buying a Home – We reserved our home

Last Friday we reserved our new home, it is a new build so wont be ready to move in to under October/November time, however as it is a new build, we have 28 days (now 21) to exchange.

So it’s been a learning curve of a week, once we’ve exchanged and it is all for definite I shall share more information about the house and the rest of our process for buying our home, but for now – I’ll be sharing about what we have been up to this last week, and what we can expect over the next three weeks.

Buying a Home – Where do we want to live?

I have lived in Essex all of my life, my husband grew up in London, before moving to Somerset, back to London, and then to Essex.

Essex is a great place to live, and I definitely have not taken full advantage of everything available to me whilst living here.

However, it is not where I plan on living, it isn’t even where we want to purchase our first home. When we are ready to buy, we will hopefully be relocating down to the Isle of Wight.
