Practice Makes Perfect : The Art of House Hunting


If practice makes perfect then I am an expert in house hunting. I have been looking for a house for almost a year now. I tried direct contact with the owner, through the tabloids, internet and agent. I have looked at places near where I live now, far away from where I live and places I never thought I may live. I have spoken to colleagues, strangers, friends and not so good friends about it. I have increased, decreased the budget. I have changed decision from single storey, one and a half storey to double storey house, and I believe I may have found ONE after all. It is not where I live now, or a single storey or the budget that I had in mind. But I believe I have found the house in which we are going to make our home. It is nestled somewhere in USJ where I believe my family will have good places to cycle, parks to run around, schools to go to and friends to visit. What I have learned in this one year of house hunting? To understand your priorities, and to listen to your gut feeling, and the most important is to pray for a best decision. Will let you know if the house buying thingy materialises....! I should know it in a day or two.
