We are ready. We can’t wait to live in a real house instead of our small apartment. So we are looking for homes to rent or buy. We could for example rent our new home at Rentola to save a lot of money, or we can see if we can buy one. It’s pretty hard to buy one these days, so rental is also a good idea.
Today me and my boyfriend started checking out a few homes that I’ve found through the biggest ‘house-website’ from Holland called Funda. Since September I have been checking out all the new homes for sale on that website that fit into our wishes and budget.
I’ve picked 5 homes and we drove to them to check out the locations and neighborhood. Two of them were close by our apartment so we checked out the street and the outside of the houses…The streets were both very nice and lot’s of trees and the homes looked nice too.
Then we drove to our favorite house, which was priced so cheap that I was worried what the catch would be…so when we drove through the street we immediately saw why this house was the cheapest. The street was so small and cropped with homes with messy gardens and the atmosphere was kind of messy. So we checked this house of our list.
The final two homes included one that was one of my favorites since September. It was located very close to the center of the city, which I love. The street looked very homie, close to many parks and it was a great looking home with lot’s of opportunities. The other house was just around the corner, but it looked straight at the railways and the huge PSV soccer stadium.
First we have to sell our own apartment before we can even buy a new home, but checking a few homes out, just the outside and the neighborhood to see if they have potential is fun. It makes us excited and happy because that we we can filter through the 30 (!) homes that I’ve selected online because I like them.
Happy house hunting!
