Are you aware that June is National Homeownership month? Probably not. Because you’re too busy working to afford the home you live in, whether you rent it or own it. Why should
When you’re shopping for a property, you probably have a list of must-have features for your dream home. But when you’re shopping for a home with your partner, your list of must-haves and their list of must-haves might not quite align—and those discrepancies can lead to disagreements, arguments, and some good, old-fashioned bickering.
But what features are most likely to spark those debates? A recent survey from home remodeling website Porch found that the home features couples are most likely to disagree on include:
An outdoor bar or barbecue area; and
A finished garage.
What does this mean for you? If you and your partner are planning on buying a home, make sure to talk about your must-haves before you go house shopping; that way, you’re on the same page—and you won’t find yourself bickering over fireplaces or flooring during the home-buying process.
