House Reservation

Tuesday, 15 October 2019

For anyone that follows me on Instagram will know that Sam and I have recently reserved a house. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind to be honest because in August, we early-bird reserved a house with the intention of moving in next June. Well, that’s all changed in the matter of a week which has been exciting, terrifying and overwhelming all at once.

If I rewind to August, we reserved a house which we’d both agreed on but it didn’t have a garage. We both wanted one but there were none left on the site which we wanted to live on so accepted that we would need to buy a garden shed and everything would be fine.

Fast-forward to two weeks ago and Sam texts me to say a plot has become available which is the same as our house but with a garage. We booked an appointment for the weekend, and I can honestly say we spent 10 minutes looking around to know that we wanted the house. 

Someone had actually pulled out of the house, which we later found out was due to their house sale falling through, which meant all of the extras had already been picked AND other people were trying to reserve the house too due to the price. We literally raced home to update our financial adviser to approve us for the sale, so that we could go back to the show homes to reserve the house the next day.

Thankfully, the sales adviser had told everyone that we were reserving so we were able to beat everyone else to it. I was so nervous beforehand because our sales adviser is not the best and I wouldn’t put anything past her.

So our move in date has now moved from June 2020 to end of November 2019 which is a massive difference and everything is happening so quickly but it’s going to be worth it. We’ve sent our paperwork to submit for the mortgage application and the first lot of paperwork to the solicitors. I just hope there aren't any delays because I’d love to be in the house for Christmas.

I’m not sure if I will blog the journey but I have created a new Instagram account called @samsnewhome if anyone wants a nosey over there!
