The Search Is Over

Finally, it lasted only for more than a month. Last night we already signed a contract for buying a house, it was not the house and land package that we are trying to pursue from the first place but an existing house that is quite good, affordable and a very convenient location just around the neighbourhood where we live now.  The only need is to finalize the contract and the processing of the financial institution for the home loan.  If everything will go smoothly between two parties and the bank, yaaaay I'm so excited to have a so called our "own house". I will now have a rest from house shopping that gives me headache, everytime we like a property and it's already sold hehe, but it's worth the waste of time and searching, it's a fun experience going for house inspection.

The next plan after all are being settled is moving out and transfer to the new house.  I can't wait for that day to come but I'm not looking forward in the process of moving out, packing all the stuff, cleaning up and feeling sad leaving the house. Lucky we don't have much of our own while we are renting as we know one day if you will move out lots of things to be moved. But, we really do need to get a rental cars to help us transfer the bulky and heavy stuff that we needed, like the beddings, appliances, clothes and etc.

I hope everything will be alright and thanks God for guiding us and putting us in the right location where we wanted to be.  May you bless our new home to be with love, happiness, peace and harmony through out our whole life.

Unsucessful Offer

How excited I am and looking forward to have our first brand new house. We already been to furniture shops and browse the possible furniture and decors to put inside the house, a boat cushion foam for outdoor chairs catch my eye and looks interesting.  The entertainment lounges was one of the choices for the theatre room.  But if we don't get the house we need to change our plan and see what we get later on.
Hubby and I finally decided to make an offer to a brand new house and land package  that we have inspected among other houses.  It was already built, standing and all you need to do is to move in and not a long wait compare to other H&L package that it needs to be constructed for 6 months or more.  But unfortunately our offer was denied in the last minute when suddenly the house owner increase the price of the property. They reduced it before knowing that no one make an offer because it's a high demand which stays in the market for how many weeks already but just  a sudden they increase it back again which I guess other home buyers were also surprised about it.  We only rely to the maximum amount of property that we can afford so we aren't able to get the property when the owner increase the price and we can't make a higher offer.  I don't know what's their aim of the sudden increase but of course to make more money.
I just hope they will sell it sooner but to think about that it's on the market for a few weeks while it was reduced and still there until now.  Hmmm all I wish is good luck in selling and also good luck to us that one day we will get the house that we're meant for us, it may not be brand new house but as long as it will become a happy house for us that's the main thing.

The Block

Yesterday, hubby and I went for the second time to inspect the house which he thinks has the potential to become our own house.  He was the one who has seen it before and told me it's a big block of land and the floor plan of the house was quiet good but it needs renovation only like changing carpet, renovation of kitchen and bathroom also painting the the walls.  The land was almost 800sqm and for the price is like a bargain. 
The floor plan of the house was really the ideal plan that we like, big size bedrooms and lounge, separate dining and kitchen, with family room too and huge backyard.  It's only the matter if we are happy to renovate and can temporarily live there while it's not fully furnished.  I think I can live with it for the meantime while sooner we will be renovating the interior and maybe get some ready made design of kitchen and bathroom. 
Today, hubby and I will deeply think if we will get the house to make sure we will not regret what decision we will make in the future.  I hope no one will make an offer yet.

Samsung galaxy III

Today was my day off.  I was a bit bored just staying at home after little bit of cleaning and it seems like I don't know what to do for the rest of afternoon after I became tired of searching the property.  I've decided to go out and wander to the nearest shopping center by just randomly browsing the interesting shops I've passed along.
I get inside the mobile shop of my network provider just to inquire when will be the end of my contract and what's the earliest time I can renew or upgrade to get a new phone or plan being an existing customer.  I was told that I'm just 5 days left to upgrade a phone but the sales assistant told me he will call center service if ever they can waive the few days left of my contract.  I've said I'm not in a rush to upgrade but with his convincing power and offering a nice contract with the upgrade I was tempted. I don't know how to decide because it's on the spot again of another 2 years commitment on contract but knowing my HTC Desire HD battery has causing me trouble for a while I've decided to bite the offer today.
I don't know which phone to choose, I only need to pick Iphone 5 or Samsung galaxy III. I ring my husband which one he prefers between the two and he said the Samsung III was his bet. Now, I finally I've got it with free screen protector and 50 percent discount for the phone cover, plus the cancellation of my existing outright payment was great.  Over all I'm very satisfied with the help of sales consultant.

House Hunting

Aside from work that keeps me busy, lately I have other stuff that makes me more than busier than the usual.  The house hunting and searching online of property that consume most of my spare time at home and even while break time at work just calling some agents.  I didn't realize it will chew up more time and sometimes it gives me headache and stress too, not that I'm complaining but it's never ending search until you get the ideal house you like or even it's a simple one that is accessible, affordable and convenient location to everything, especially a short distance from work is a bonus.
Everytime I will inquire the prospective property that we decide to commit, it's just unfornate that it was already sold or under contract. It's not like shopping the best guitars online, easy to find and mostly are all available with many choices to pick.  What annoys me is when I inquire and I was told that it's already sold for a while but it was still showing up in the searches.  But well, I know one day it won't be very long that we can really settle up to a house that is somehow what we really wanted and is convenient to all.
