We have had our up’s and down’s with our house, we have
had it almost two years and its been a roller coaster, even with a full survey
you are still not prepared for the true magnitude of problems you end up
facing! On separate occasions both
hubbie and I have been thinking it would be sensible to have a quick house sale
and cut our losses. Although they could
be substantial because we have taken apart the house and not made it look
Note for future: going in
guns blazing is not an ideal approach to home renovations if you are on a tight
budget and cannot make it look good afterwards. You end up with a bit of everything started and nothing at all
finished!!! It probably would have been better to bash it all down and start from scratch instead of trying to work patching up what we have!
we are in for the long game, willing to tackle each problem gradually over time
or so we keep (perhaps foolishly!) telling ourselves. People
say time is on our side but with my hips and back aching more these days, 37
years old does not seem quite as young as it used too!
is VERY tempting to not be tied to a big high maintenance property and just take
off into the sunset on a boat like this couple did, but it’s a different
life when you have kids involved, I could only begin to imagine the kind of
cabin fever we would have all cooped up in that boat for any length of
time! The pictures look amazing though,
the couple look relaxed and happy, I think I look over fraught by comparison
most of the time.
if I did decide to sell my house fast through a site like UK Homebuyers Ltd I would probably
downsize, I thought having a big house would be wonderful for my family but now
I just see the £££ draining away, especially in winter when you try and stay
warm as best as you can. I would also
like something new and finished, old has character yes but it also has lots of
problems, porous stones and woodworm.
