Hello all! We've been quite busy fulfilling wedding orders the past weeks, we've fallen behind on keeping you posted on what's savvy in the wedding world. Today we are discussing "post wedding adventures", where your happily ever after will take place, your "new" home together. A lot more planning is in store, and not just for one big day, but your lives as a single unit, a family, even a family of two, it's your family's new home. This is what it's all about. Not centerpieces, gowns, but comfort, your wishes, and still a color palette is in the mix, but it's not for one day, it's for every day.
Many couples plan to join households just before or right after their wedding. Sometimes its living in an apartment, renting a condo, and most often buying a house together. We had some great tips shared with us from Elizabeth Dodson, co-founder of HomeZada, that we thought to pass along to you! We hope you find this helpful if you and your new spouse are in the search for your newlywed haven.
There are some obvious things to consider when buying a house like price, size and room quantities to support your family. However, some other considerations come to mind that may not always be top of mind when considering a new home.
Best Time to Buy
Review the Home During Different Times During the Day
Each of these considerations are easy to add to your list of considerations when buying a home and can help you get the home you will love.
Did any of this article help you in your upcoming home search? Were there things mentioned you had already considered, or will now consider? Please share your intake, we love to hear comments on our articles!
I highly agree with viewing the home at different times throughout the day. Also neighborhood surroundings...proximity to schools, easy access to freeway/highway, stores, gas stations, restaurants nearby, etc. When searching for your home, drive around the area, get the feel for how neighbors upkeep their lawns, especially for design layout, and look to see if neighbors stand out on the sidewalk or driveways chatting it up.
All of the suggestions here are great take-aways in my book, especially for first time home buyers. Be savvy in your new home search, whether it is a resale, or to be built. And, if a new build, know that your home will not look like the model...as I've learned, unless you purchase the model.
When all is said and done, welcome to your newlywed dream home, Mr. & Mrs.! Display your wedding memories, your together memories, and if family is following suit, your home is now ready for the next chapter!
Our many thanks for the tips, submitted by Elizabeth Dodson, co-founder of HomeZada!
