How To Navigate The Home-Buying Process Without Damaging Your Relationship

Click here for Home Page

 

How To Navigate The Home-Buying Process Without Damaging Your Relationship

Relationships thrive on good communication and working together as a team, two key attributes you’ll need to institute if you’re planning a move with a partner. Research suggests that 58 percent of Americans agree that moving with a significant other is more stressful than wedding planning, so you’re going to both need to keep your wits about you as to not risk damaging your relationship. Don’t go into the home-buying and moving process without having a solid plan so you’re both on the same page throughout the entire process.

 

Choosing A New Home

It’s unlikely that you’re both going to find a home that 100 percent appeals to both of you, so you’re each going to need to compromise when it comes to things like layout, size of the yard, the number of rooms (and what you intend to use them for), etc. Tips for success include:

 

  • Make Separate Must-Have Lists: Having at least five items that match is where you should put your focus for what to look for in your next home. If possible, see if you can each compromise on one thing from each of your lists.

 

  • Separate Emotion From Budget: Unless you want to start your new homelife fighting about money, set realistic expectations of what you can both afford no matter how much you love that professional kitchen.

 

  • Consider Putting House Hunting On Hold: Sometimes taking a breather is more effective than putting pressure on yourselves to find the perfect abode right away. Consider letting your realtor help you weigh the pros and cons of your top picks — an unbiased third party can help you avoid an argument.

 

  • Be Honest About Your Financial Status: This is particularly important for unmarried couples who are buying home together. Factors like different credit scores, figuring out how to manage costs, and figuring out what you’ll do if the relationship goes south.

 

Plan Ahead

A moving checklist can help you organized and on track while limiting stress and arguments. When creating such a plan, be realistic about time — many people underestimate how long moving-related tasks can take, so exaggerate a bit so you have some wiggle room. If you decide to hire a mover, make sure you do so a few months in advance so you have ample time to research the best pros in the area for the job.

 

Declutter With Empathy

One of the quickest ways to start an argument is by insulting your partner’s personal belongings during the decluttering process. As it is, studies show Americans of all ages and sexes struggle to part with sentimental items. It’s likely that you’ll both have things you will need to get rid of in order to make more space in your new home — particularly if you’re downsizing. Like the buying process, compromise to ensure you’re both keeping some items of importance while making a dubious effort to avoid dragging things with you that you no longer need. This will help with the unpacking process later on.

 

Divide And Conquer

Stay out of each other’s hair by taking on separate tasks that cater to your strengths. For example, one of you might be better at tasks like organizing the movers and changing the addresses on all of your pertinent contacts while the other is better at packing boxes.

 

Practice Self-Care

Unpacking is an arduous process, so it can be easy to become overwhelmed, frustrated, and exhausted, which is the perfect recipe for getting on one another’s nerves. Take frequent breaks and take time to eat a decent meal — maybe even leaving the house to explore the neighborhood together.

 

Try to make some happy memories together amidst the chaos. Moving into a new home together is an exciting life milestone, so don’t let stress take that away from you. Take a moment to pop open a bottle of champagne and toast your success.

Looking For a Home Near JBLM? Here Are 4 Reasons Why Puyallup is a Popular Place to Buy a Home

REALTOR® Cyrus Bonnet recently had the opportunity to help a homebuyer purchase a gorgeous 5-bedroom, 2.5-bath home in the gated community of Hillsboro in Puyallup! Featuring premium and updated amenities, contemporary style, fabulous spaces (like a main floor master suite!), and a private backyard backed up to a greenbelt, Cyrus Bonnet’s recent clients are in for a treat. Congratulations to the new Puyallup residents!There are a long list of reasons why those in the military at JBLM choose to make Puyallup their home. While prized for its community atmosphere, Puyallup is also home to an excellent variety of city conveniences. If you work at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and are trying to figure out which nearby city to live in, here are a few of the top reasons why you may want to consider Puyallup:

  1. It’s easy to get from Puyallup to JBLM.

Commute times are a big deal for most people, and Puyallup offers a great city to live in all while being close to JBLM. As Puyallup covers a large area though, your commute time will largely depend on where in Puyallup you live. If you live closer to Frederickson in South Hill (a part of Puyallup), depending on traffic times your commute time could be as short as 12-15 minutes. However, if you live in Downtown Puyallup (in northern Puyallup) closer to Sumner, your commute time could be closer to 20-30 minutes. I would recommend doing a real-life test of your potential commute at the time of day you’d normally be driving at to see if the timing suits you.

  1. Puyallup is home to many in the military.

Due to its close proximity to JBLM, many people in the military choose to call Puyallup “home.” This has many advantages—for one, you could potentially set up a carpool with someone. There’s also people and families around with the same lifestyle, and it’s great to be able to call your fellow service members neighbors.

  1. There are many opportunities for shopping.

Whether you need to go grocery shopping or head to a mall with tons of options all in one place, Puyallup has it all. Costco, WinCo, Tacoma Boys, multiple Fred Meyers and Safeways, and more all offer great grocery shopping options. Plus, a huge farmers market is at Pioneer Park from April through October each year, which is great for picking up fresh food directly from the farmers themselves! Puyallup also has 2 Walmarts, 2 Targets, the South Hill Mall, and tons of other shopping centers that makes running errands easy.

  1. Puyallup is close to many outdoor opportunities.

Puyallup is home to several beautiful parks, and if you really want to feel like you’re out in nature or if you would like to head out for a long run, the Chapman Trail at South Hill Community Park, Bradley Lake Park, and Wildwood Park are a few excellent options. The Foothills Trail is another great option—this 25-mile trail is perfect for bicycling and running, and part of the trail is in Puyallup. You’re also close to Lake Tapps in Bonney Lake, and several lakes toward the south. Searching for an even bigger adventure? Mount Rainier National Park is about 1.5 hours away, depending on which part of the park you head to! Camping, hiking, boating, fishing, dirt biking, and much more are all within reach from Puyallup.

Searching for a Home Near JBLM? Here Are 5 Reasons to Check Out the City of DuPont

Recently, I worked with a lucky home buyer to help them win this 3-bedroom home in DuPont’s NW Landing community. Congratulations to the new owners!

DuPont is an excellent choice for those searching for a home that’s close to JBLM and in Pierce County, and I have a few favorite things about the city of DuPont to share:

  1. DuPont is right next door to JBLM.

Nestled in between the Puget Sound and Interstate-5, DuPont is just southwest of Joint Base Lewis-McChord. It’s a popular place for those who work at JBLM to call “home”—it’s close proximity ensures you can get home fast and start enjoying the beautiful outdoors you’re surrounded by! Which bring us to the next few reasons you’ll want to check out DuPont…

  1. DuPont is right on the Puget Sound.

The shimmering Puget Sound is truly a sight to behold, and residents of DuPont are lucky to have this Pacific Northwest treasure practically in their backyards!

  1. Nisqually National Wildlife Reserve is right next door, a dream for nature lovers.

Featuring over 4,500 acres to explore and observe, this incredible local reserve is the perfect retreat for when you just need to get away from it all. Grab your camera, pack a picnic, and head out for a day of adventure. 275 migrating species of birds, 24 species of fish, and a large variety of other animals like coyotes and small mammals can also be observed here. There are also some great programs and events to take advantage of—learn more about visiting here!

  1. Eagles Pride Golf Course offers a convenient and beautiful option for golf enthusiasts.

Open to the public, the 27-hole championship Eagles Pride Golf Course provides golfers with a fantastic local golfing option! Stunning scenery provides a picturesque setting all in the shadow of Mount Rainier. There’s also a driving range and a pro shop for your convenience.

  1. DuPont is next door to Lakewood, making it easy to take advantage of its many lakes.

As the name might suggest, Lakewood is home to several lakes. Especially of note is American Lake, which is the lake closest to DuPont. This dynamic amenity is home to a long list of fun activities to enjoy—American Lake North Park & Marina and Harry Todd Park are 2 excellent parks on the lake where you can enjoy some beach time or a picnic. You can also go fishing in American Lake—different types of trout, bass, perch, and salmon can all be found. 

You can keep exploring DuPont here!
