I think we all know that Christmas is just around the corner and I honestly could not believe how quick this year has gone!! It has all come around so fast that I am so unprepared for it this year 😦 being in a new house we don’t have a tree yet or any decorations so it really doe not feel like Christmas to me when I am at home. I cannot wait to go up to my parents house this weekend and either a) see the beautiful tree they put up or b) put up the christmas tree!! Continue reading
It has been a week since I moved Sylvester into the house and I was very much afraid that he would not settle in as he is a very fussy cat!
But I am happy to say that he is a lot more settled than what I had thought! He is still scared of loud noises and he has his few hiding places that he loves to run to (under my bedside table is his favorite), but all in all he is finding himself comfortable in his new home 🙂 Continue reading
The weekend just passed was spent cleaning the house that will be my home for the next 12 months and let me tell you I put every ounce of effort into making it a place that I will be happy to come home to every night.You know when you walk into a place and you think its clean but then you take a closer look and see the layer of dirt on everything… well that’s what happened to me. I didn’t think the house was that bad but when I really looked at it there was a layer of dirt and dust that just had to be cleaned before any of us even considered staying there. Continue reading
A few months ago I started the whole process of looking for a new house to live in with a friend and my boyfriend, it was a totally new experience for me as i have never lived out of home.. but the boyfriend asked if I wanted to move with him and to be honest it was one of the happiest moments of my life. I never believed he would asked me to live with him, i honestly never expected it but it made me so happy that I started searching right away.
I jumped on www.realestate.com.au and began my search for a home for us to live in and after many many searches, saving for the bond and finding someone else to move in with us we finally found a place that fit our criteria to a T!!
I can happily say that as of yesterday afternoon we were finally accepted into the home that we applied for!! I was so happy that I called my boyfriend right away to tell him the good news! He was happy too though not as happy as I was/am!!
Now we have the awesome job of getting the Bond and Rent together to pay the agent and then on Saturday we go to out local Ray White Office found here – www.raywhite.com – to sign the final documents and then we get the keys to our new rental home!!
I cannot truly express how happy yet nervous I am over this 🙂
Well I had 9 bloody open for inspections to see on Saturday and I ended up going to most of them, I had help from one of the guys I will be moving out with to go see the rest so both our days were full on!!
So whilst we were at one house which was totally old and yuck! The real estate Man told us about another house not too far that we may be interested in….. Well let me tell you we really liked the house! It was simple but nice and had everything we needed and was in much better condition than most of the other homes we looked at so that was good! 🙂
I literally just emailed the application through now and the estate agent said he will give me an answer by late today or tomorrow… So I am hoping it will be a yes!! 🙂 and then we can move into a new home! I am so excited yet nervous at the same time!!!
Fingers crossed for me please xx
So there was a house that my Boyfriend went to see last week that he loved and when he told me about it I fell in love with it too!! It was 4 bedrooms tiled in all rooms apart from 2 bedrooms, was brand spanking new and it was only about 5 minutes down the road from a soccer pitch!! (We both love soccer)
Well we were waiting back to hear from the real estate and she was meant to call us on Wednesday but I hadn’t heard from her, so I called her yesterday and she was with a client so I left a message to call me back……. well the day dragged on and I hadn’t heard anything and just as I was about to leave work I thought hmmm lets just check my Hotmail and see if she emailed me ……… and she emailed saying that the landlord didn’t accept our application 😦 I was shattered 😦
Now we have to look for some more places and on Saturday I am actually going to 9 yes that’s right 9 open houses!! Dont ask me how I am going to see them all but hopefully at least one will tickle my fancy!!
Wish me luck as ill need it!
Just a little update on the house hunting situation, I have applied for about 4 houses so far and they are all relatively new or if not new they have been renovated a bit and look really nice!
There is 4 open inspections on Saturday which i have no idea how I am going to get to all of them! Doubt the boys will help me out as they are being true boys and leaving it all up to the woman to decide everything!! (secretly I don’t mind). All this means is that I am going to get a house that I like and that’s all that matters! 😛
I havent had any of the real estate agents contact me yet 😦 but i suppose they have a fair few people who apply so they will have to get through all of them!!
Wish me luck people!!
Well I saw the second house today and let me say I loved it!! It was smaller than im used to but I can’t expect to have a massive house with my budget!
The rooms were a decent size and the ensuite was nice too, the kitchen was spacious and nice and the backyard…. Well it’s small but I’m not too fussed on that! 🙂
I took a rental application and will speak to those I am moving out with and hopefully we can hand in the application and start the process!!
Sneak peak at the house!! Xx
