first step to getting our home sweet home

first step to getting our home sweet home

3rd house viewing was planned with Estella and shermine from orange tee to view some flats in hougang and within 6 hours of viewing our home sweet home, we signed the option to purchase and paid $1000 for it....


like what i mentioned about Mr Ang in the proposal blog entry, Mr Ang works like a bullet train... he sees it, he likes it, he goes for it.... hahaha.... not that i m complaining cos this flat is really one of the nicest we have viewed thus far and we are really eager in getting our own home sweet home....but the high cov of $25000 is setting us back by alot... very heartache ah... make me both happy and moody... took me a few hours to come to term with it lo.... but still decided to get it over and done with... dun like the feeling of hovering over the same thing for long and flat viewing can be really tiring....


anyway, happens that there's an article regarding resale flats in thesundaytimes and the information is rather informative for us....


"the typical legal completion period for an hdb resale transaction is about 18 weeks from the time the seller grants the buyer an option to purchase (OTP)"


so since we had signed the OTP last night (22/10/2010), we should be able to get the key by end feb.... but agents told us last night that by end jan, everything should be cleared.... then cny then reno for about 2 months???....so we should be able to settle in by may or june???? so peeps, start saving up again k??? hahaha...i will need sponsors, more sponsors for my house, cos i will be so poor i may even need sponsors for food items to stock up our kictchen.... hahahaha....


in the mean time, it's house renovation brainstorming and idea time... my favourite past time since 13 years ago.... hahaha.... love to day dream about how my room, my tuition room, my living room, my kitchen all gonna look like.... fun, fun, fun.... =)
