Before Josh and I bought our first home, we lived in a two bedroom apartment that we outgrew once we got married. We wanted more space, so we decided to look for a starter home that was slightly move-in ready (ha!). We found the perfect little house and instantly knew we NEEDED it. Fast forward a few months and here we are :) We felt very prepared for the financial side of everything … so that didn’t really scare us. We QUICKLY learned that being a homeowner is mostly just figuring everything out as you go. So, I’ve decided to share a few things we’ve learned so far:

 

  • Always have a good plumber on speed dial :)
  • Toilets CAN freeze in the winter
  • Be prepared to make 1836495653736585757 trips to Lowes and Home Depot.
  • Measure everything at least three times before you buy it
  • Radiators from 1920 aren’t quiet… but that’s okay!
  • Be prepared not to sleep the first night in your home…. EVERY NOISE IS A GHOST!
  • Making several trips to Target, Hobby Lobby and Home Goods every week is 1000% normal. GOTTA GET THOSE SALES!
  • Painting really does make a difference
  • YouTube tutorials are a life-saver
  • Any weather forecast other than sunshine will give you anxiety

 

Well friends, if you’re looking to buy a house I hope this post helped you! No one is alone in the craziness of owning a home. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and try to find the humor in everything!! Trust me, it helps!!

xoxo
