The idea for OneDome was born out of my first experience with home buying.
After spending months viewing properties, I found the perfect home for my family and began the house buying process. After 4 months of a stressful and disjointed journey, I found out on the day of exchange that another person had bought the house of my dreams. The experience cost me thousands of pounds and months of my life. Because of that, I didn’t attempt to buy a property again for four years.
When I started researching the issue, I found that I wasn’t the only person to experience a failed transaction. Over 400,000 home buyers in the UK have been through the same experience, losing £2,700 on average. It was then that I decided there must be a better way.
