Elevation smelevation…

Elevation smelevation…

SO as previously mentioned, the elevation that we originally chose looked exactly like our neighbour’s. Of course, that the last thing we wanted and it led to a week of headache as we tried to choose something else that we were as happy with. So…

Settlement booked for Monday + second site visit

FINALLY, it’s all coming together! Settlement has been booked for Monday afternoon and I managed to drop off the cheque on Friday for the deposit + fees. Phew! When I handed the cheque over to my settlement agent, he informed me the hole in the…

Update: Settlement

Update: Settlement

SETTLEMENT was meant to be yesterday, but because of the extension requested by our lender, it’s all a waiting game right now. My settlement agent is waiting for word from our finance broker who, in turn, is waiting for our lender to come back to…

Our land! Well almost…

Our land! Well almost…

Well, we’re still waiting for settlement obviously, since it’s been pushed to July 20. But I thought because I was going all the way up to Yanchep yesterday to visit our friends Cat, Harry and their kids in their new house, I’d drop by to snap a few pictures of Vanderlin for this blog.

And lo and behold, there was a “SOLD” sign :
Brilliant! That just gave me that little boost, knowing that soon, we could call it all ours.

We’ve got the plans!

We’ve got the plans!

NORM just emailed us with the preliminary plans with the structural changes we have requested. They’re all quite minor because even though there is temptation to chop and change every single part of the house imaginable. We are conscious that this is our first house…

Fingers crossed!

Fingers crossed!

AHEM! Yes, we’ve found another plot of land and upon discovering the low price, I called the agent immediately to put in an offer. During my conversation with the agent, Justin O’ Connell from Century 21 Gold Key Realty, the owner has been trying to…

Bye-bye 149 Liberty Drive, Clarkson

Bye-bye 149 Liberty Drive, Clarkson

AFTER a ridiculous amount of to-ing and fro-ing, we found out that our offer was rejected (no surprises there). What we didn’t realise is that our agent, Loma Eldridge, was co-broking the plot with another agent, Gemma Andrews. Loma failed to put in our counter…

149 Liberty Drive, Clarkson

149 Liberty Drive, Clarkson

SO we found a plot of land, going for $249,000 in Clarkson: The asking price is a little high so we’re putting a rather conservative offer and see what the response is. Wish us luck!
