6 things you'll hear new homeowners say

Trust us, you’ll recognise these gems. You might have even said them yourself.

IT’S A MONUMENTAL event in anyone’s life – the first home that’s all your own.

But it often seems that buying a home consumes conversation for months. You’ll see your friend transform from the joker down the pub to property-obsessed new homeowner, right before your very eyes.

Here are a few things you’ll definitely hear them say.

1. “We’re staying in tonight, got so much to do in the house”

It’s taking over their lives.

2. “We’ve a big job to do on the garden…”

Not only will a new homeowner let you know ALL about their renovations plans, but look forward to hearing about their landscaping ideas. Even if they’re well aware you hate gardening.
