What to write

Welcome home: what to write in a new home card

They say home is where the heart is, and at TouchNote, we say a new home card is where the heartfelt is! Yes, super cheesy we know, but we stand by it. 

A home is a big purchase and one that takes a lot of hard work. So we have created this selection of messages to help you come up with the perfect new home card congratulations. Whether you want something short and sweet, funny, for first-time buyers, new neighbours, families or someone moving abroad, we have the message for every new homeowner. Or perhaps you want some inspiration on how to best capture the moment of a new home, in which case we have just the read for you!

Once you’ve found the perfect card from our range of TouchNote exclusive New Home Cards, it’s onto the message. 

Keep it short and sweet

If you are looking for a simple message, these congratulations messages could be precisely what you’re looking for. No need to complicate it, wish the recipient all the best with their new home and keep it short and sweet.

  • “Home Sweet Home.”

  • “Welcome Home. Congratulations on your new house!”

  • “Wishing you a lifetime of great memories in your new home.”

  • “You got the keys! Excited for the grand tour.”

  • “Good luck with your new home. Let the decorating begin.”

  • “There’s no place like home.”

  • “Best wishes on settling into your new place. Have fun!”

  • “Congratulations on your new apartment.”

  • “May your new home be blessed with warmth, love and happiness.”

  • “Cheers to you and your new home.”

Say something funny

A move can be a stressful time. Between packing up your whole life and unpacking it again, undertaking ambitious DIY jobs, and introducing yourself to the entire neighborhood, it’s not always smooth sailing. But it’s an exciting time and one you can definitely inject a bit of humor into. 

  • “Home is where the wifi connects automatically!”

  • “Let’s hope the neighbours aren’t a nightmare!”

  • “I can’t wait to come to stay, and definitely overstay my welcome!”

  • “Welcome to the mortgage club.”

  • “Shut the front door; look who has a new home!”

  • “Good luck with your new home, but more importantly, good luck with all your DIY fails!”

  • “May your home look just like your Pinterest board.”

  • “So which room is mine….”

First Time Wishes

For the first-time buyer, a new home is not only the biggest purchase they will have ever made but by far the most important. Wish them luck, and congratulate them on taking that first step onto the property ladder!

  • “Very excited that you have become homeowners. Now time to unleash your Pinterest board on your new crib.”
