It's Official!

Contracts have been exchanged, deposit given, strata report clear and loan approved! Jacky and I have just put a deposit on our first home =P
It’s a 9 year old town house with 2 levels, 3 bedrooms, double garage, 2.5 bathrooms, ensuite, walk in wardrobes, separate dining and kitchen, a lounge room with hardwood floors and a small back yard (just big enough to hold a BBQ party!)
Wow...... what an exciting (but scary) feeling!

Settlement is July 13th...I'm counting!

Sarah: we'll get the keys july 13th just in time for you to see it!

Twins: well seems that furniture will be expensive so i'm not sure what i will do there yet..but it'll be fun looking ..you should see all the lists i've made and spread sheets of our budgets.

Labels...you know i like labels...the stuff in the kitchen will probably all be labelled hehhe.

Ayako said...

Wow...congratulations on your big step! =) (I know, such a cliched thing to say..)

Bosco said...

noodles said...

congrats congrats =D it sounds HUGE for a townhouse!! not to mention it also looks huge =D

though i do wonder what the .5 of a bathroom is...

petals said...

Congratulations Em...and Jacky, of course!
;)

The place sounds really lovely and cosy, and it looks it too!

PiCkLeS said...

Amanda: haha thank you!

Bosco: your place looks really nice, it's an investment property though? or are you planning to move in later down the track?

Mario: It's big compared to the townhouses in the area because we didn't want to be any further than 20 mins away from the city. But overall it's not a huge place but very comfortable for 2 people. ahhaha a lot of people have asked me about the 0.5 bathroom, basically we have a toilet downstairs with no shower or bath so we count that as half a bathroom.

Christine: thanks, can't wait to go furniture shopping! and i finally have room for all my shoes!!

Helen (AugustusGloop) said...

Congratulations!

Bosco said...

i dunno, probably not... maybe use it to buy something else or something

petals said...

ahhh...a room for the shoes...i think my shoes have taken over my room...wait...so has my clothes.

*cries*

I really must stop shopping for shoes...but i saw these cellini flats...the leather was oh so soft...*sigh*...

SoRMuiJAi said...
