For those on the dating game I have to say I really do feel for you.  Dating isn’t what it used to be when I was single which was quite a while back now.  Hearing stories from my friends who are dating and others that have been house hunting and then coming across this a great infographic which likens dating to house hunting I simply had to share.  We can all do with a fun distraction a few times in the day can’t we!  It’s actually pretty spot on too.  House hunting and dating have quite a few similarities.

One thing I have noticed is sometimes people are a bit too quick to jump into a relationship / buy a house without doing enough research, they tend to regret this in the long run.  You should always take your time and get a feel for the prospective house or partner as getting attached early may mean you over look some serious flaws which will later haunt you to no end.  I remember house hunting with my husband years ago and there were so many things I considered prior to even viewing a house and too be honest I have to admit I also had a list of criteria prior to going out with my husband too.  If you are looking for a long term relationship with your house or partner then it pays to be thorough.

Borrowed with permission from thanks so much guys, I didn’t want to end up on the naughty step.  The Law House can help you deal with any residential or commercial property situations – non dating related.

I totally agree with not committing after one viewing (in regards to if you like a home or date) as you can’t always get a suitable feel for a home or prospective partner during that period of time.  A few viewings can help you make a far better judgement and in regards to a house viewing different times of day can make a difference as you can assess the noise levels and also traffic and parking in that area.  It is also advisable to view a few houses or go on a few first and second dates to make sure you make the right decision.  You never know what you might be missing out on otherwise.  I’m not suggesting going out with numerous men, just make sure you don’t commit too early to the first one you meet.  The same can be said of houses, you might think you love the first one but it turns out the fourth one you view is perfect and ticks all the boxes.

Can you see the similarities between finding the perfect house and dating?

  1. This is so important and you are so right with all the points. Buying a house is a huge commitment and it is best to take time and get to know someone before rushing in with someone and realising that they are not the one x

  2. In a few years time when it comes to looking at houses I know I’m going to be doing a lot of research into the area and I bet I’ll view the property quite a few times x
