Buying a new home is a process that you should be immensely proud of. Although it appears as though it should be quick and simple, anyone who has been through the process will tell you that it is far from it, with the potential for endless stresses, sleepless nights and arguments with estate agents. Here’s how you can ensure your prospective new house becomes a home immediately.
Dotting the Is and Crossing the Ts
The first part of the moving in process starts before you’ve even signed the contract. You may have had a bid accepted, and your property may look beautiful, but that doesn’t mean that you’re ready to move in. Instead, there are a range of conveyancing steps that you must take first.
This will ensure that you’re fully aware of any restrictions in place on the property and it will prevent any nasty surprises occurring. Fortunately, this isn’t a particularly arduous process, and companies likeConveyancing Direct offer an online conveyancing service. As soon as this process is complete it is time to sign the paperwork, hand over the deeds and let the fun begin.
Plan, Plan, Plan
Even after the conveyancing process has been completed, the rest of them moving in process will take time and, as a result, you’ll have ample time to plan.
You should make the planning process as meticulous as possible. Go back to the property and spend time measuring each and every room. From here, you can sit and plan the layout of each room. After this, you’ll know exactly what will go where on moving in day and what you still need to buy before the big day. You want your new house to become a home in an instant, and this kind of meticulous planning allows this.
Décor and Personalisation: A House Becomes a Home
From the second you move in you can begin to personalise your new home. People often market their properties in neutral colours (as is advised) and although this can make the house look light and bright, it appears impersonal and sterile.
To counteract this, you need to immediately get out the paint and personalise. Make your bedroom the first room of focus (a good night’s sleep is essential for you to recover from a strenuous day’s decorating) and then take the process from there.
The more photos and personal items you can hang, the better to begin with. These will act as a great symbol of your ownership and, alongside your personal possessions from your old house; they’ll make you feel right at home here.
Remember, as soon as you’re in, the stressful ordeal is over. It’s time to enjoy yourself and begin transforming your new house into a loving family home. Plus, it’s finally yours, so you can do this in whatever way you see fit.
