One of our aims for this year has been to buy our first house.
After saving our arses off for years as well as some generous help from parents, we finally have a deposit. A close shave on a tiny terraced house in Caerphilly means we have a mortgage offer but not an actual house, so we've been looking and looking for months for something we like, has everything we need and can afford (seemingly an impossible task, we've viewed loads).
I love looking round houses, and I really believe you can tell
the second you walk into a property whether it's the right one for you.
We've seen huge ones and small ones, shabby ones and pristine ones, awful ones and dreamy ones. We liked one in Chepstow but that potentiality seems to have come to a dead end with the vendor not being willing to reduce the price to what we can afford, which is fair enough but still a shame.
It's sad but house viewing in Chepstow is always nice anyway, as it's such a lovely place. I would have liked to have lived there.
