Realigining your expectations

19 Dec

Buying a house was a bitch.  A depressing, mostly waste of time while driving around, looking at houses that are completely different to the photos and descriptions.  Not to mention the epic under quoting going on.  The search lasted around 12 months, which extreme dedication

The search started like this:

  • Criteria 1: Within 10km of CBD with a parking space and balcony, preferably courtyard or even better – backyard.
  • Criteria 2: With at least 2 bedrooms
  • Criteria 3: Within a 10 minute walk to the closest train station / tram

The search changed and went like this:

Criteria 1: Within the East / South and still considered within Greater Metropolitan Melbourne

Criteria 2: Within a 10 minute walk to the closest train / horse and cart.

Long story short, now live 36kms from the city and everything I knew.  Now to get me through the long train ride, I pretend I’m going on a beach holiday every night.  At least I’ve caught up on episodes of Dexter on the iPad.
