The search for a house continues

With constant e-mail alerts telling us about prospective suitable properties and lots of trawling the internet for somewhere to call home we are finally going to look at a house this week. It ticks a lot of the boxes that both myself and James require so will see how this one turns out and will keep you all updated on the progress of buying our very first house.

Welcome to A Little Cornish Home

Hello and welcome to our blog a little Cornish Home. We are Amanda and James and we have been together nearly 5 years and during that time have lived in a multitude of Cornish property. From House shares in Falmouth and Truro whilst Amanda was at college to flats over looking watergate bay. We have now found ourselves spending the last few years in a beautiful cottage on a farm, it's a wonderful house, large, quiet, spacious, beautiful, modern, warm and safe. It's perfect but it is just not ours.

This is our journey from renting to mortgaging and renovating. James works for a local housing association and spends his time organising other peoples houses to be refurbished and repaired and i'm a self confessed 'locationlocationlocation' addict wishing one day kirsty and phil could help us to take the plunge into buying a house.

Well over 5 years of renting later and £1000's given to various landlords it is time to leave the security blanket of rented homes and step onto the steep scary property ladder.

This is our story of first time buyers, first time renovators and living the Cornish dream.

All we have to do now is find a house and buy it...... Where do we start???
