And just like that things can turn around for the best!
We were, admittedly, a little more cautious this time around because of how we felt we were burnt a few weeks ago. We selected a few places in the same area to look at which met our criteria yesterday and gave ourselves a plan. Chaos had also got a notification about a townhouse a bit further out that was definitely in our price range. It was open at the same time as another property we wanted to look, so we thought we’d just see how we were doing.
After the second unit we looked at that had been creatively worded and photographed in the advertisement, we made the decision to head over to see the townhouse. We knew from the moment we walked in that it was us.
It’s only a year old in a large complex of townhouses, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a courtyard, lock up garage and everything we could hope for! It has tenants in it at the moment but we could wait to move in until their lease ends.
Even though we had such a good feeling, we thought we’d go have a look at other properties on our list. When we saw the ensuite the size of a cupboard in the next unit, we made a dash to the car to call the agent and make an offer on the townhouse!
And that’s right! They accepted our offer. We didn’t play games or go into a bidding war, we simply offered the asking price, with the condition we could have the cats. It is in the by-laws of the complex that pets are allowed, so we should be fine!
OMG! We’ll have a home soon!
