I've not been near LJ since Thursday night, due to my travelling to Sydney for my niece's engagement - have lots of photos to sort through and will post about that later this week. But something tremendously exciting happened on Friday - my offer was accepted on a house! It was the second house I'd put an offer on; the agent for the first one mucked me around so much that I ended up retracting that offer, once I knew that I'd scored the second one.
Settlement date is 31 May, provided the house passes its pest and building inspection. I'm that excited! Rent should cover the mortgage and the insurance, leaving only the rates for me to fork out. Anyway, if you want to see it, it's here. I'll be checking the listing daily, waiting to see those wonderful words "Under Contract" appear under the heading on the website.
