Perfect Place?

We may have finally found our so-called 'perfect place' to buy ! Whoopee... !

Although when I seriously sit back and evaluate the details and specifications of the townhouse, it appears we have seriously downgraded our requirements. I think the reality of the Sydney housing market has slowly seeped in.

  • 1. We are no longer looking for 2 bedroom apartments - simply because we will have a better chance affording a 1 bedroom

Which actually means anyone else who will come over and visit us from Perth will now have to sleep in the lounge room.

  • 2. We have expanded our locations to include lower north-shore suburbs, and not just eastern suburbs and inner western Sydney.

Which means we would probably lose contact with half our friends. As I doubt many of them will be willing to depart with $7 ($3 bridge, $4 tunnel) everytime they have to come up and visit us.

  • 3. We have lowered our requirements to go for a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 carspace townhouse. Which is a far cry from our previous searches for a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1 carspace apartment.

But the reality is that we would probably never be able to find a 2x2x1 apartment that's within our price budget in Sydney.

I just hope that when we go to check out the townhouse on Saturday, it is able to live up to our lowered expectations. (fingers crossed!)

don't worry.. the place was a big disappointment. It is right next to the train tracks and so had cracks going down all the walls.

Photos can be so deceiving :(
