'Happiness is ... buying your first home'
The house buying process for me and Tom started with us finding the right property. Our main priority was to buy a house in the area close to our family. We also wanted a property that needed renovating to put our own stamp on it as Tom is a joiner so is extremely handy around the house. The first step we took was contacting a mortgage advisor, who is a friend of a friend, to find out the likelihood of us being able to get a mortgage and look into the amount of money we could borrow.
