Congratulations On Your New Home: Housewarming Wishes Ideas

Congratulations On Your New Home: Housewarming Wishes Ideas

Few events are more tumultuous, labor-intensive, and yet emotionally gratifying than moving into a new home. Putting everything you own in boxes, moving those boxes to a new location, and then unpacking them all can take weeks — sometimes months! But in the end, it’s worth it, as you now get to enjoy a new life in fresh environs. 

 If you know someone that recently made the transition into a new house, it’s nice to welcome them into their new space and show your solidarity with their ongoing journey. However before you send a card, you need to consider your housewarming wishes — what are you going to say? “Congratulations on your new home!” gets the job done, but it’s not very exciting. Instead, take a cue from some of the examples provided below, and elevate your housewarming wishes.

Heartwarming Housewarming Wishes

Taking the sentimental route is always a good option. People are invested in their homes, filling them with all of their hopes and dreams for the future. Let them know that you’re with them.

  • The steps into your new home represent the steps in your life that brought you to this point, and they always lead you home. Welcome to your new one! 
  •  Here’s wishing that all the love, friendship, and contentment you found in your old place follow you to your new home and multiply. Happy housewarming! 
  •  May your new roof keep the elements out and good tidings in. Welcome home! A new home is a stepping stone in the river of life. 
  • Here’s to hoping the storms are kept at bay as you move to the next stage in your journey. Happy new home! 
  •  When the wind blows, your walls will keep it out. When the rain pours, your roof will deflect it. When the sun shines, your windows will let it flood happily into your life. 
  •  We couldn’t be more excited for you. A new home is a chance to start over, remaking yourself as you unpack your life. Hoping you can make the most of it!

Housewarming Wishes for First Time Buyers

If your recipient is new to homebuying, congratulate them on making such a bold move.

  • A house is a place you rent until you don’t need it anymore. A home is a place you own, where you can put down roots and stay put for the long haul. Welcome to your new home! 
  •  Congratulations! You just got another X on your “adulting” checklist. Enjoy your new home! 
  •  You bought a house! Welcome to being in debt for the next 30 years of your life! It’s worth every minute. Happy housewarming! 
  •  No one sends you a card when you buy a pack of gum. Scale up to a car, and there’s nary a peep. But drop big money on a house, and you get a party! Welcome to the exciting world of homeownership!

Funny Housewarming Wishes

Choosing a bit of levity is another strong choice. Keep your loved ones laughing as they forge a new chapter in their lives.

  • They say that laughter is the best medicine and home is where the heart is, so laughing at home should keep you healthy for years! 
  •  Pro tip: If you never unpack the boxes from this move, you’ll be all ready for the next. Three cheers for efficiency! Welcome to your new home! 
  •  What makes a house a home? An ‘M’ in place of the ‘U’ and ‘S’! Here’s hoping life in your new home is better than your spelling ability! Welcome home! 
  •  You asked for people to help you move. I sent you this card in my place. It may not help you move your couch, but it should put a smile on your face. Happy housewarming! 
  •  Moving is a ton of work…and that’s it. No witty conclusion. I hope you get the work out of the way soon so you can start enjoying your new home! 
  •  If home is where the heart is, moving requires consulting with a cardiologist. Good luck with your upcoming transplant, and happy new house! 
  •  Here’s to hoping your new home is everything you want it to be and that you can make peace with the ghosts living in your attic. Good luck!
