Is it teething time for your little one?

Buying a house is one of the biggest financial things that you will ever do in your life and finding the right one is really difficult. While it is easy to base your decision on a gut feeling, there is a lot more to it than that.


Here are five other ways to tell that you have finally found The One.


1. You love the location

While it is important you love the actual house, it is also vital you like the area just as much. You can always change your home around but you can’t change your neighbours or the long trek to the bus stop.


2. You can see your future there

If you can see yourself sitting in the garden when you are old and grey then you know you have a keeper.



3. You brag about it to everyone

Bragging is not a nice thing to do but if you find yourself wanting to tell everyone about this dream house then you may have found The One.


4. You can afford it

There is no point getting yourself into unmanageable debt for the sake of a home – but if this one ticks the boxes nicely it’s definitely a keeper.


5. There is space to grow

A home with space to grow is a forever home. Whether you have more children or get a few more pets, if there is space out the back or in the attic to expand with your family then it’s a good place.
