You’ve signed the mortgage papers, moved in all your boxes, and maybe even popped some bubbly—but the celebration doesn’t have to stop there. If you are looking for more ways to celebrate buying a home, think about the memories you want to create in your house. The point is to have a good time whether you want to fill the place with all your favorite people or all your favorite things.
Getting off on the right foot after buying a house is pertinent. Kickstart life in your new place properly with these memory-making tips that will make you feel right at home.
Throw a Housewarming Party
A timeless way to commemorate the purchase of your new home is by throwing a party. A housewarming party fills your new home with good memories and positive vibes to last a lifetime. Even if you are social distancing, you can host a virtual housewarming event to allow your loved ones to see your new place. Once you decide on a date and time, send invitations by mail or via the internet. Sending invitations is also a wonderful way to announce you have moved.
Top Tip: Use treats like baked goods or candies to invite neighbors to your housewarming party. Get to know everyone on your street!
Update Interior Rooms
Bring a modern design to your living room with ergonomic furniture, a full entertainment system, or contemporary artwork. Never negate your style and preferences when choosing pieces to include in your home. Whether it’s a television or sectional you’ve had your eye on for a while, purchasing something new is a great way to celebrate buying a home.
Take Photos in Front Of Your Home
If the photos you saw—and shared with some friends and family—before you bought your home are the only ones you have, you might celebrate moving in and unpacking by taking additional pictures. Take photos you want to share with friends and family online. Include a photo of the household standing somewhere significant such as:
- in front of the house
- in the yard
- on the porch
- in front of the fireplace
- near a window with a beautiful view
- on the couch
- around the table
Check Out Your Neighborhood
Schedule time to explore your new neighborhood and the greater community. If there are sidewalks near your house, you can take a walking tour. Get in the car and go on an adventure to find out what kind of things there are to do near you. You can also use the internet to discover the location of nearby parks, restaurants, and event venues.
Buying a new house is a life event. Include your friends and family in your big moment by hosting a party or taking photos. Settle into your space by upgrading the decorations and exploring your community. No matter what type of neighborhood or house you move to, you can find a plethora of ways to celebrate buying your home.
