did your house sing to you?
a climbing tree in the backyard would be much appreciated and I stumbled upon
this illustration today and couldn’t help but think it look just like ours…
As you probably know, we’re in the midst of house hunting. As prospective first home buyers we’re teetering on the edge of one of the biggest financial decisions we’ll ever make – it’s nerve-wracking, to say the least. But while launching ourselves into a mortgage is a tad scary, I can’t help but wonder when we’ll know if we’ve found the right house? We don’t want to make the wrong decision!
So I’m wondering if the stories are true; does a house really sing to you?
I’ve been asking every home owner I know and generally everyone has the same response: yes!
A friend told me yesterday that the leaves will look greener and the flowers will look brighter. Another friend told me that we’ll only see possibility and not hindrance. And someone else told me that it will just feel right – in our hearts, deep down, it will feel like home.
Needless to say, waiting for a house to sing is like waiting for a baby to arrive – the anticipation is intense! I can’t imagine what it will be like when we find the singing house and have to wait for an offer to be accepted.
At the moment we’re trawling real estate websites thrice daily, planning our Saturday’s around open homes and packing boxes when we can. We’re also looking for rentals because unfortunately, we need to be out of this current rental in 6 weeks times.
Nothing like a looming deadline to get things going…
