some exciting news





mattyj
Me and wife are currently in negotiations to buy or 2nd house Smile

We have pre-approval from the bank, and are just negotiating with the owners at the min to find a reasonable price.

This is awesome news for us, because currently we own our house in the old town we lived in which is about 6 hrs drive away, but have been renting since we moved down here when i got a new job...and where we are renting is like 45 mins drive from work, the house we are buying is about 5 mins drive Smile

Its a great house too...Older style (first house built in the town!) but in very good condition, and it comes with a shop!! haha

I didn't quite get that. Did you own or rent your first house? Or was it another house you were renting?
...and what do you need a second one for? Are you also going to keep the first one?

Anyways, good luck with your buying Wink

Awesome! Congratulations. Hope it will be a wonderful home for you. 5 minutes away from work! So now how can you beat that for convenience. Could not be better. With a shop. Plus income from your first home. Good investment! Have you got plans for the shop yet! Thought of starting a real estate business? Smile

Thats pretty exciting. Sounds like your getting it for convenience sake? And that sounds interesting as an "older style" with a shop inside. Post pics?

No plans for the shop yet...Possibly might use it as a small gallery for my photography, over public holiday weekends and stuff, as its a very touristy town

Convenience aswell as i dont like renting as you are paying off somebody else's house, its just good that it is so close.

Here is a photo from google maps, house on the right shop on the left. Smile

Very nice. Hopefully the current owners will be quick about this deal then! haha. Couldn't imagine owning a house and still having to rent one to live in because of distance >_<
loonix
Very nice - does this mean you'll now have 2 houses?
mattyj
KHO: Yeh its not nice owning a house but having to rent..

loonix: Yep this will be house #2, doing alright for a 27 year old i reckon Wink


Oh and our offer got accepted, $30K less than what they were asking!
loonix
Nice one, congratulations - so you gonna just rent the other house out now then?

So what exactly is a shop? When I first read 'shop' I pictured a room where one could work with wood and stuff, like a wood shop. Weird I know but I've never really heard of a room as a shop before.

Congratulations, your life seems to be going well Very Happy
