Well l'm really on this property buying road now! Why have I decided to share my journey? I figure I'm not the only woman taking on an adventure like this, and I have lots of questions. There's so much I don't know, I don't even know the questions to ask. I guess if I can find out some answers I can pass them on to others.
After my initial visit and realising where I am taking my life now and just how much I had to do I spent the next couple of weeks not sleeping very much. I would wake in the middle of the night and stay awake for hours worrying about all the logistics and just how much I had to do and how much I didn't know. I knew this couldn't continue so I've decided to set myself up with a backup team of people I trust and can get information from when I am unsure. So now my back up team are Carl and Trevor from Neville Richards Real Estate for any details and questions relating to the land.
Richard from Hotondo Homes for any house stuff.
My conveyancer Carol from Exchanging Conveyancing for all the legal stuff that I have no idea about.
But now I also have to start thinking about getting my house ready for sale by the beginning of 2020. Because to pay for my new house and land I have to sell my current house. So, I contacted Nicole Rowe from Ian Reid Vendor Advocacy for help in that respect down the track.
Next, I decided I had some questions only the banks could answer. So, I made an appointment with a consultant at Westpac Eltham.
My questions were regarding bridging finance, just in case it was needed. The answer was no I am not able to get it as it can only be used when you are selling one house and buying an existing house. The Westpac guy kept apologising that he couldn’t help. But as I told him That was fine, I just needed to know the answer and now I can continue with my plans. So, I'm pretty happy with my back up team at the moment.
