First Time Buyer

So who's excited that it's nearly the weekend?

As mentioned in previous posts, I am currently looking to buy a house or a flat - depending on what my budget can stretch to. It is literally becoming the bane of my life. First up - I didn't think I would be doing this as a single gal - when I was little, I was sure that I would have my Prince Charming by my side. Turns out - not so much. Secondly - I can afford the mortgage, but who knew all the costs to actually move house would add up to SOOOOOO much! It's stressing me out to say the least. The search continues to find something that is girly and pretty - last week I viewed a flat - the estate agent asked what I thought of it - to which I replied "It looks like a haunted 70s bed sit!" Not a chance! 

Hugs & Kisses

Try to see through the rubbish too though, our first house was a dump but we knew it had amazing potential! In France, your costs are 20% of the actual sale value so it makes England seem cheap!

Good Luck, Im sure you will find somewhere suitable cute soon. Like wise I was a first time buyer not so long ago but was so thankful to share the stress of it all with my fiance. Just shows how much of a strong independent woman you are though xx :o)

We bought our first house last year and it is expensive/stressful etc but it's SO worth it. Keep in mind that when its yours you can change it and prettify it up :-)

I moved into my first house last weekend. It is so expensive! After our 10% we budgeted another £2000 and we still have a little bit of that but none of that was used for furniture and stuff that's coming from a different account.
Good Luck, it's so stressful and the week before was horrendous but I'm sat on my sofa and it's so worth it! Get to be friends with estate agents too! Our house was actually a house the estate agent did up to sell. He can't be the only worker that does it.

I hope you find you dream home :) I would love to live in my very own house, but can't really afford since I'm still a college student. No bank would give me a loan :D

That pic from weheartit is so adorable! ^^

Thanks for checking out my blog.
You're so lucky to be able to buy somewhere (even if it is without a Prince Charming!) I hope you find somewhere amazing. xx
