There comes a time in our lives when we’re finally ready to move on from being owned by the monthly rent. We want a place of our own, not beholden to another landowner, least of all to a leasing agency, and it’s time to set out on one of the greatest adventures the world has to offer. Buying our first home! New Home Owners Day celebrates this auspicious occasion and those who are daring enough to take the plunge into private home ownership. For some of them it will be a thing to pass on to their children, for others the first purchase of many as they enter the realm of real estate.
History of New Home Owners Day
It’s been the dream of families ever since we settled our first village, to own a home of our very own. A space set aside that is just ours, a sanctuary where we are kings and queens of our own little hill, rather than simply renting under the auspices of another. Whether you have to settle on a small rural lot in a tiny town, or a sprawling estate in lush forests, buying your first home is always a reason for excitement. Buying your second is a cause for celebration! There’s just so much to do when you’ve become a new home owner.
You have to decide how to decorate it, whether you’re going to remodel, or maybe you built it from scratch and it’s time to start helping your lawn recover from all the construction equipment. Either way, New Home Owners Day celebrates the journey you’ve begun, and the one you will follow for as long as you own your home. Most of all, once you’ve bought your own home you now have the right to take a deep breath and relax from all the stress involved in getting it done.
How to celebrate New Home Owners Day
When you’ve purchased a new home it’s traditional to hold a house warming party. House warming parties used to be literally that, you’d come into your new home and light a fire in your hearth to warm the home and bring the life and light of family into it. However you choose to celebrate New Home Owners Day, you have a right to feel proud and accomplished at having finally made it through the gauntlet and become a home owner.
