Cautious Kitty

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 New Chapter Starts

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

The Start of a New Life

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 🙂

our new life awaits

This May Be It!!

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

It Just Wasn’t Meant For Us

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!

Applications Towards a New Life

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!!

So Many Questions!!

So i am applying for several houses now and let me tell you if you havent applied for a rental property before well OMG there are so many bloody questions you have to answer!! So much information you have to give and when filling it out for someone else there is so much to ask and it takes so bloody long!!! But on the plus side it means I get to move out sooooo yay for me!! ;p

so many questions that it hurts my head 😦

Well were not going to move out in the original area that I had hoped 😦 but we came to a compromise and the suburb we are moving to I am very happy with and the houses we have looked at are so bloody BEAUTIFUL!!!! They are bigger than what we were originally looking at cos now with the 3 of us we have increased the price slightly but still affordable!! So now we get a bigger Prettier house which I am totally cool with!

Well that was just a quick update for you and hopefully soon I will be able to say we have been accepted into a place!! That would be totally AMAZING!!

Inspection number 2!

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!!

Excitement!!

Sneak peak at the house!! Xx

Inspection Time!

So I went to my first house inspection yesterday for a house to move out to and I thought 4 bedroom 2 bathroom place would be nice! I had to take time off work to go see this place so I was hoping it would be good!!

Well…… The house was horrible 😦 it was an older house which I don’t really mind but I mean it has to be at least taken care of and let me tell you this place had not been taken care of at all!! it was filthy, I mean I know you can clean up the house and all that but wouldn’t you do that before you had people come in for an inspection? I mean that’s what I would hae done! Anyways even though it was dirty it was so small, I mean the rooms were as tiny as one of the offices at my work!! and that was the main bedroom!! and the other rooms where even smaller 😦 oh and don’t even get me started on the kitchen!! it was so small I really don’t know how anyone could ever have cooked a meal there!!

But anyways that’s only one house and I am sure that there will be more out there that suit my needs!! here hoping the one on Saturday will be a lot better!! 🙂

Wish me luck xx
