From Rented Accommodation To Your Very Own Pad

From Rented Accommodation To Your Very Own Pad

Most people’s goal is to move from their rented apartment or house into their very own home. Buying your very first property is a sign that you are well and truly an independent adult and very able to stand on your own two feet. You’ll finally be a homeowner!

However, moving from rented accommodation to a new house of your very own is a huge step and one that you will need to get used to. Even though it may not seem that different on the outside, when you finally do make the move, you might find that you need to change your lifestyle and your mindset. Here’s how you can go from rented accommodation to your very own pad without any problems.

Get That Deposit Back

You will need every bit of cash that you can get on once you buy your own home. Those mortgage repayments don’t come cheap! So, before you move out of your rented accommodation, you need to get it all clean and sparkling so that you definitely get all of your deposit back. The best thing you can do is hire professionals, like Whizz end of lease cleaning services, to come and clean the property for you. You should also collect all the copies of the house keys. Otherwise, your landlord might charge to get new copies made. Oh, and don’t forget to repaint the property if you have done any of your own decorating.

Budget Better

Now that you are a homeowner, you will need to ensure that you save as much money as possible so that you always have some cash for your mortgage repayments. Your monthly wages should easily cover your payments. However, it’s also necessary to have a bit of extra cash saved up in an emergency fund. You never know what the future might throw at you, and having this cash to fall back on will help you continue to pay your mortgage no matter what happens.

Brush Up On DIY Skills

Now that you own your very own home, you won’t be able to call a landlord to come and fix a leaking pipe or broken boiler. You will have to do that all on your own! Sure, you could hire out a handyman to come and help you with any odd jobs that need doing around the property, but that is going to cost you a pretty penny. You will find that it works out considerably cheaper to do a spot of your own DIY. Investing in top-quality tools and materials will help you do a good job. And there are plenty of YouTube videos that show you how to do specific jobs. You might get so into DIY that you end up subscribing to a monthly DIY magazine!

Moving into your very own home can be as nerve wracking as it is exciting. But don’t worry, once you get used to it, you will never look back again. You might even wonder why it took you so long to buy somewhere!
