A playful approach to the issue of home ownership ‘Game of Homes’.

Ever played a game of monopoly and realise how frustrated you get with other game players? Okay, so it’s only a game, but what monopoly represents is the competitiveness and frustration buying a property can pose. With every game, there are pitfalls and in reality buying a property, whether it be a house or flat can offer similar problems. Competitive offers, the possibility of being gazumped and the endless fees invoiced by your solicitor, estate agent and vendor.

Purchasing a new property can take its toll on any prospective buyer, with so many ways a sale can fall through. It is never an easy task and it can be extremely tiring both financially and mentally. To avoid this at all costs, it is imperative for potential homeowners to fully understand the process of buying a property through an estate agent. Even if it is not your first property purchase, every sale is different and you can most certainly encounter new problems you had never envisioned.

So if you are thinking of packing up and moving to a new home to start a family, recently married and need somewhere to call a place your home or a young first time buyer who is wanting to climb onto the property ladder, be wary of hidden costs involved. You will need patience and a stash load of cash for a deposit, stamp duty and fees involved. It is integral to understand each stage of buying a property as with any contract, once it’s signed, it’s harder to get out of.

Taking a playful and engaging approach to the issue of home ownership, we thought it best to illustrate the process of buying a property in the style of game of homes. We have identified 12 key stages of buying a home through an estate agent to ensure any sale you dive into works out for the best with as little stress as possible, making your house a home in no time!
