ANOTHER HOUSE HUNTING DAY

Today we are again heading down to Hamilton, this time we have about 4 'new' houses to view and we are also having a 2nd viewing of a house we have seen before as well.

These are a few of the 'new' ones we will be looking at:




ABOVE:  some of the new ones on the list to view today... and


ABOVE:  the one we are having a 2nd viewing of.  

So, another exciting day ahead of us.  I'm starting to get confused with all the houses we have seen!  It takes a bit of concentration to remember what each one was like.  Luckily most of them have decent photos on the internet so I can go back later and have another look.

I hope YOU have a nice day planned?  No one tells me a bloody thing!  Pfffft.  Maybe I should be reading the blogs more, now that I'm not so busy in the house I might just make that a priority tomorrow.

ONWARD...
Update: we have viewed 4 homes so far today. Stopped  for lunch now. Of those 4 houses... I've  fallen in love with  one  of  them!  

Stew isn't  quite as keen on it as me... but I will 'work' on him. *smiles'😆

UPDATE: ALl houses on today's  list have been seen... and we are now visiting  Kelly, Gordon  and Rena.

We are staying  in  Hamilton  till dinnertime. .. then we are going for a second  viewing  of one of the 'new' houses we saw today.  It has amazing  views, so we want to  see what it's like at night. 

I am VERY excited about this house.

UPDATE:  well... our 2nd viewing of the third house (above) went very well.  The night view is just as gorgeous as the day view and we are going to make a pre-auction offer on it ... after our house goes unconditional... on MONDAY all going well.

We stayed in Hamilton for dinner with some friends of ours, then came home, arriving back in Auckland at around 10.30 pm.

I had about a bottle of wine during the evening, so am feeling just a bit tiddly... I shall have a hang over tomorrow for sure!

End of Day:  a very exciting day, so pleased that we found an alternative 'dream home' after losing the first one I set my heart on.
Time to wrap up the day and head to bed.  I'm knackered, as is Stew I'm sure.

  5. Happy house hunting! I'm packing for my vacation--a trip to see my parents in Arizona. My mom loves looking at houses, so we may be doing some looking ourselves. Not to buy, to just enjoy.

  7. I hope I'm not speaking out of my turn here, but the first 2 houses from the outside not really you, but the other 2 below suites you more. Although they all stunning. Good luck.

  8. Have a great day Chris. I love looking at house plans so I am enjoying this journey with you. I am visiting my daughter in Ballarat, Victoria where it is currently 5 degrees It's not expected to reach double digits for the weekend so will be a bit chilly

  10. Which house do you love? I like the third house, the one with the oranges on the kitchen counter. It has loads of windows in the kitchen. What does the house with the view look out at?

    1. Yes the third house is the clear favorite and it's the one with amazing views of the ranges in the distance and lights from houses below.

  12. I love the look of the 3rd house - it has character! (Also three car garage by the looks of it - so you can garage your cars and still have your gym in the garage if you want). Good luck with the 2nd viewing :)

  15. I have everything crossed for you, that your house is sold and you get the new one you want.

  16. The fact you have a realtor working on your behalf does not mean you should stop doing your homework. I would scour the neighborhoods each morning and look for any new realtor signs and then call my realtor and schedule a visit that day. This is how we found the house of our dreams before anyone had a chance to make an offer.
