I'm a Home-owner Now!

Sunday, 4 June 2017

To be honest, I have no idea who's reading this blog, but I haven't given up writing about my trips. Yeah, I know. Hard to tell when I haven't posted anything in a month!
My apologies.
I've been away for a good reason. I've bought a HDB apartment recently and I'm going to be receiving the keys to my new abode in about 2 weeks time! Hence the disappearance, since I was busy getting ready for renovations and all that.
I admit though, any spare time I had, my focus was still on keeping my other nail blog running first.
But anyway, I'm going to try to keep this side running. I'm now so super excited (and freaked at the same time with all that expenses) about being a new home owner, I'm going to try to channel some of this excitement into blog posts.
Don't worry (as if you would), I'd still try and fit in and continue with the Japan posts.
hmmm.... I just realised that this post is going to be so wordy without much pictures! The only one you're going to get is with my floor plan below:
Anyway, my home ownership process started actually with my brother saying that he intends to buy his own flat now that he is eligible to do so. Until then, I had merely been saving up with the general thought that I'll get a flat myself one day. 
However, my brother's words spurred me and last year, I contacted a friend who works as a property agent. A bit of financial discussion with her and I realised I'm actually good to go!
I have to say, I'm pretty fortunate. Within the first week of appointments, I found a unit that I liked. The only setback to not getting it sooner was because the seller requested for an extension since they were transitioning to another unit and needed time for renovations and to move. Not a problem for me.
My friend took me through the whole HDB processes (thank goodness for her!) and in 2 weeks time, I'll be collecting my keys, ready to takeover my new place!
Let's hope I'd remember to get more photos so as to properly document the rest of the process!
