After spending a month viewing house around current estate we kinda finally come to a conclusion, if the negotiation done smoothly we should be able to place deposit and secure the unit we’ve been eyeing tonight.
Some hiccups happen during these one month apart from scheduling house viewings we are kinda offered to another work opportunity (not in Singapore). When we finally can register as a buyer after fulfilling 3 years as PR, the system need our occupier (who is Chloe) need to fullfill 3 years PR too which give us a heart attack hello she’s not even 3! that one night we thought our dream of getting a house need to be postponed again maybe we should just left this place.
Anyway the offer is yet to be confirmed we are not sure the package is good enough for Ming to quit his current company, the occupier details can be filled up after the transaction is done. After discussion we think it is better to proceed with our initial plan if by end if this month we decide to take in the offer we might just got the 1k deposit forfeited instead of giving up this good unit.
Reason why we are rushing to place the deposit was this house seems hot selling lar. The price is reasonable although it’s consider a low floor unit but come with unblock view the neighborhood is quiet, as the house with old layout the place look kinda spacious and bright with a lot of windows. Only con is the road next to the block may be a little busy and noisy but sound proof windows may solve the problem.
I’m so excited that we can finally own our place after moving around for many times and I can finally design my own house so excited that i couldn’t sleep well almost every night after we decide to place the deal. I have the floor plan ready even 3D done with The sims placing in furniture and planning the layout everything make me sooo excited! Although it take 2-3 months time for paperwork plus the hacking and reno that would be another 2 months if everything go smooth we should able to move in before Christmas!
ID or not ID
Now i’m contemplating whether to hire a ID or just go for contractor, our friends shared a few of their own trusted contractors’ contact with us and advice to go straight to them as they can see i clearly know what i want and i can do 3D planning myself so they try to convinced me to not waste the money on ID fees. However the reason i’m contemplating is maybe once in a lifetime to hire an ID? i can rely on them for work arrangement and workmanship or someone to blame if anything go wrong? i have no experience and may not have enough time to source stuff myself?
Anyway for now we will explore and open up for options and maybe ask for various quotation to do comparison then make decision before mid of August.
Dream come true?
Those who know me will know this is a dream come true to me (if i can finally own a house), i’ve been moving house since young for 11 times in total. Yes moving is nothing to me but already part of my life, due to better job’s prospect my father used to change his job every 5 years to a different bank in Malaysia so i was born in Malacca, then move to JB in JB itself we shifted 4 times after few years we moved to KL and move in to in-law place after married, come to SG we moved 3 times due to rental. My mum finally own a house at 53yr old with her own saving, i hope i don’t take her footstep but to have a place call home and stop this moving nonsense. I strongly believe that’s what God plan for me (this moving part of my life) help me to adapt to new environment easily, willing to take up challenge and i’m totally not hoarder but yet i’m tired and insecure. I NEED MY OWN HOUSE.
to be continue… plan for now is to work harder to save more money for renovation and furniture!
