As most of you guessed, in the end House B won the battle!
House B has now become our plan A, and I couldn't be happier!
Thank you for all your helpful advice on the dilemma! I had some wonderful tips from you, and it really helped to clear my mind and gave me a guide on what I should focus on. I hadn't really shared the house-hunting process with many of my friends, so it helped tremendously to have advice from all of you lovely ladies, and also to have a bit of wisdom from some who had done it all before. I am ever so grateful! xx
As suggested, I decided to draw up a list of pros and cons of each house -
As you can see, House B won in a landslide!
I am now the proud owner (or I will be in exactly 28 days!) of a beautiful three-bedroom two-bathroom double storey townhouse. As you might have seen from the picture in my previous post, it's a gorgeous little thing and I cannot wait to get moved in! Unfortunately it is currently tenanted on a fixed lease until the end of December. Once the lease is transferred we are going to discuss with the tentants the possibility of breaking it early, but in the worst case scenario we should be in our new home around Christmas time (ahh, the wait is going to kill me!).
And look at the size of my new kitchen! <3
So now begins the fun of planning and buying new things to decorate the house! If the renters decide they want to stay until the end of their lease, we will have quite a while to plan and save up to buy everything that we need! I'm so excited.
Can you give me any tips, or inspiration for setting up and decorating a new home? xx
