This week’s blog article is for all the new homeowners in Marlborough. 1st May is a day, just for you… Yes, it’s New Homeowners Day!
Owning a home is part of the Kiwi dream, but these days it takes lots of hard work and dedication to step on the property ladder for the first time. So, when you get there, we think it’s something to celebrate.
If you’re still on the search for a home, you might find this article from our archives helpful. It’s chock full of tips to help you prepare for the exciting challenge ahead of you.
If, however, you have just become new homeowners, then why not take 1st May as a day to celebrate in style. Just like other new homeowners will be doing around the world.
Here are three ways to help you celebrate new homeowners day in Marlborough.
Have a housewarming party:
This may seem an obvious choice, but it’s easy to get so bogged down with moving that you forget to plan the party. If you’re not keen on having a crowd in your new home, then make it a garage or yard party! If you plan the event close to your moving date, then be sure to encourage your friends to bring a plate. That way it won’t matter if your kitchen isn’t completely sorted.
Have a quiet night in:
You’ve worked hard to get to this stage in your life. So, enjoy the right of passage. Prepare a romantic dinner with your partner. Have a cosy catch up with your housemates or family. Or, if you’ve bought on your own simply taking time to relax in your new surroundings. Do remember to light some candles… This is a traditional ritual, which hails from the superstition of warding off evil spirits. But, we think there’s something special about the glow of candlelight to mark this special occasion.
Meet the neighbours:
New to the neighbourhood? Celebrate your new home and meet all the good people from nearby by hosting a neighbours night. Keep it simple by making it a casual drop-in affair with finger food and a glass of fizz. That way, you’re likely to get higher attendance and meet all the good residents from nearby.
