And we might have found it...

I don’t want to jinx it, so I’m not going to say much about it. But we put an offer on a property which was accepted. We’re now on the process of sorting out the bank(s), solicitors, surveyors etc. It’s a bit tricky. It might even last for a month or two, for everything to get sorted out and us finally moving. Hopefully, we’ll be having Christmas on our new place. And we’ll be landlords!!!!



Overall, we saw more than a dozen properties in various areas. We saw terraced houses, detached houses and flats in big buildings. We even arranged second viewings for one or two of them. What we finally decided on is a terraced house in a very nice and quiet residential area next to a conservation area and even closer to public transport. It has two and a half bedrooms. The half a bedroom can be easier called a study. I can’t see anything other than a dog finding that space sufficient. I don’t even think a bed will fit. However, there’s the prospect of a loft conversion and doing the place up in general, which is exactly what we wanted.

Hopefully it will all go well.

    Oh... by the way, I've been seeing a guy from Kárpathos.

    1. Karpathos? That's great. I haven't been there myself. But my grandfather was born and raised in the island of Simi (same island group). He used to say the best of things for the people of Karpathos!

  2. I don't want to jinx this by saying congratulations so I'll merely say in theory, if your offer was accepted, financing achieved and you ultimately purchased this home, I'd be among the first (hopefully) to shout "Well done!" and "Congratulations!".

    1. Thank you. There's lot still to go through before the exchange of money / keys. We'll see... :-)
