We will be moving into our own apartment within a month!
It all happened very quickly after we decided to make an offer on one the apartments we had in mind (the smaller and less expensive one). I made an offer on Thursday evening, got a counter-offer on Saturday, which we accepted, and on Tuesday a contract was signed. So five days was all it took to reach a binding agreement.
I gotta say I feel very good about this and I we’re both excited to get moving our stuff into the new place. :-)
I have been planning on buying an apartment together with my wife for quite some time. We have both been saving money for about two years and finally we are getting into position where we can buy our own place.
Actually things have gotten so far that we have two potential apartments on mind and now we are trying to make up our minds about which one we’d prefer over the other. Both are less than 10 years old and located very close to where we live now. They have their pros and cons and the major difference between the two is size: one has 58 square meters with two rooms and the other has 75 sqm with 3 rooms.
The latter is about 20 % more expensive, but that’s not an issue. I’m confident that we could afford either one. The question is, do we really need the extra space? And how long are we going to live in the apartment anyway?
It’s not like either one would be our dream apartment, so I suppose it would make sense to start with a smaller investment now and move into a bigger apartment within the next 10 years.
Those people who tell you not to take chances
They are all missing on what life’s about
You only live once, so take hold of the chance
Don’t end up like others, same song and dance
