Hello Forumites! In order to help keep the Forum a useful, safe and friendly place for our users, discussions around non-MoneySaving matters are not permitted per the Forum rules. While we understand that mentioning house prices may sometimes be relevant to a user's specific MoneySaving situation, we ask that you please avoid veering into broad, general debates about the market, the economy and politics, as these can unfortunately lead to abusive or hateful behaviour.

Hi all

No advice needed (this time), I was fortunate enough to complete on a great house this aft so am now officially a homeowner!!

I just wanted to take the chance to say thank you to everyone on this board for the various advices and support you've given me through this FTB journey!

 Since I joined you guys have seen me through countless viewings as well as two fallen sales and you've been a huge sounding board for me throughout the process. 

I will doubtless be asking many many more questions on this board but for now I just wanted to share some appreciation :) you've been invaluable!

    What a lovely post. 

    As per Slithery, I don’t know if I’ve posted on any of your threads, but like you, I found this board so helpful during the stressful buying/selling process. So much so that I continue to post if I think I can help. 

    There’s more useful advice on the sub board ‘In My Home (includes DIY)’ if you need it. 

    Enjoy your new home!

    I found my broker, when I was looking to staircase my shared ownership property, and didn't know where to start, through the "I'm a Broker, ask me anything" post.

    She was worth her weight in gold. 🙂

    Congrats on your new home, hope you're very happy there :)
    It gives me hope that I will yet find my perfectly imperfect property (even after 26 viewings!!!).  Having been outbid a few times now, I have to say it does become tiresome and I definitely have Rightmove fatigue.  So happy for you.  Best of luck!
