Is something I'll be doing in about 6 weeks. Just agreed on a price to buy a villa in North Parramatta. 3 bedroom + study/storage room, new wooden floorboards, new bathroom, new kitchen. Just needs a good lick of paint and a few cracks plastered over and it'll be sweet.

:bounce: :beer: :bounce: :beer: :bounce:

Only issue of course is that I'll have to get used to paying a mortgage again. :cry:

And looking for someone to rent out a room, though I have two leads on that at the moment.

Off to pay the holding deposit now. Then in a few days, sign my life away. ;)

Good point - when's the housewarming? :beer:

Congratulations - I hope you and your mortgage are very happy together!

Housewarming will be tentatively in about 8-10 weeks. Or I might just time it to coincide with the Soccer World Cup. Anyone from CG in Sydney around then is welcome to tag along. :beer:

Had a solicitor type look over the ocntract today, and nothing weird there. Meeting with the bank tomorrow, and seeing as they pre-approved me back in September, it should be a mere formality.

So now I just need to figure out costs for the stuff I still need to buy for the place, like a stereo/amp, entertainment unit, a couple of coffee tables, a dining table, a clothes dryer. And, er, anything else I can think of. Like a dishwasher maybe. And then work out exactly how much I need to borrow. Oh, and find someone to rent one of the spare rooms.

Well done.

Going back to paying a mortgage is a pain, but you'll get used to having no money. I did ;)

Venom will be there!

Well, contracts all exchanged. Loan approved. Settlement set for 10 weeks as the owner wanted a delayed settlement, so it's June 5th when I take posession of the property, and start paying off more money than I have ever owed before. :eek:

Paramatta - does that mean you go to work on the JetCat?

29-03-2006, 13:24:20
Substandard wiring. That place is gonna burn down.

29-03-2006, 13:56:28
Ahhh... So it was built by Laz then.

29-03-2006, 14:12:17
Designed by Mr G. And Aredhran was a sub contractor on it.
