Published: 7 September 2018

At Cotswold Independent Financial Services our services rely on major commitments, for example investing into a pension, buying or remortgaging a home and purchasing a buy to let property. An article in the Independent shows based on a poll of 2,000 adults how quickly they are ready to commit. When it comes to relationships one in ten surveyed think it takes a least a month before love blossoms (or 9 dates). In contrast “the average homeowner will commit to buying a new house after just four visits to the property. And a third admit to falling head over heels in love the first time they step through the front door.” “Researchers found a spontaneous third of homebuyers have decided to go for a property after only seeing it for a brief time.” “A prime location is the factor most likely to result in Brits falling in love with a property, followed by the look of the exterior and interior. The garden, the kitchen and the general character of the house are also important considerations.” Due to the timely nature of needing to get a mortgage secured when providing independent mortgage advice our whole of market knowledge helps us know the peculiarities of each lender and the best fit for you in order to expedite the process. The research continues “once they have the keys to a new home, one in four homeowners feel the first butterflies of love within the first 24 hours of moving in.” Read the full article here.
