Well it wasn’t planned to happen quite this quick but everything is falling into place. Having lived overseas for 5 years where double glazing of homes is standard we responded to an advert for free quotes with a view to getting double glazing in our home. We were not surprised at the $8000 quote for just the living area of the house. This made us think about where we go from here.
After a recent visit to Levin we were introduced to a house there that ticked all the boxes including double glazing which is now compulsory in all new buildings. It was obvious by the time we had completed an inspection of the property that this was the house for us. Only 18 months old and absolutely immaculate. No messing around , negotiations began immediately with a deal being struck within a very short space of time. At this stage our house wasn’t even on the market.
We headed home with the thought of what have we done? With a couple of appraisal’s in hand a decision was soon made to list with the local Selig’s Real Estate with whom Dot had worked for in their Upper Hutt office. Within hours of signing the listing an agent rang us to view. A couple of hours later she rang us back (we were away at the time) requesting permission to take a client through. Not a problem, we said.
We eventually got home an hour or so later thinking the house would be clear but oops, the agent and client were still here. Jodie will eventually become our home’s new owner. We still have a few repairs to do and we don’t shift until the end of October.
Talk about life in the fast lane, it’s all happened so fast and suddenly the stress is over, thank goodness.
