First Time Buyers: How much does it really cost to move house?

How much does it really cost to move house?

I've got some exciting news. Mr Dollface and I have just bought our very first home, hooray! It's a brand new home, so we have been waiting for it to be built and we are so excited. Prepare to see lots of home related pics popping up on my twitter and Instagram soon, and you'll have already seen me planning the interiors on Pinterest!

Buying a home has not been an easy process and we've found that the people we've ended up dealing with tend to assume all buyers know what the process is. News flash: as first time buyers, we had no idea. Plus, our parents bought houses a long time ago and the process has changed since then.

I've decided to start an ad hoc post series all about buying your first home, what to expect and try and tell you some of the information that you might not know, and cut out all the jargon that completely threw us!

In this post, I'll be talking about some of the costs you're likely to come across (not including the ones you already know about such as the deposit). We had no idea about some of these fees and I wish we had been a little more prepared. Because we weren't made aware until the last minute, we didn't get a chance to do much price comparison or look into anything.

If we had been aware of them, we would have used ReallyMoving.com's easy cost of moving calculator and been a little more prepared!

So here's a few of the extra costs you can expect to encounter!
