Buying in Sydney is expensive! Even if you could afford a city apartment Strata fees will start at $1000 a quarter increasing every year. For the last few months we thought that we would buy in the City around Pyrmont. We’re young and we want convenience and to be close to work. But now it looks more likely that we’ll stay in the suburbs and we're probably looking to buy a 2-3 bedroom townhouse, a yard with grass, a cupboard that doesn’t double as a laundry and our own backyard where we can have a BBQ.
I think that I may have fallen for a place but our loan won’t be finalised till 2.5 weeks time (when my probation ends). Despite reports that the Housing market is still sluggish we know and can see that the market is very active! Chances are, the place we like will be sold by the time that we’re ready to offer.
On Wednesday Jacky had mapped out about 8 open for inspections that we would check out over the weekend. When Saturday came around 4 places had already been snapped up. I guess if it’s meant to be it will be, and if not then there is somewhere out there waiting for us to find it.
