We’re moving…

We're moving - from: http://www.picgifs.comAs you would know if you read this blog, I haven’t written anything much of late. While I have wanted to, there just hasn’t been any time.

What is going on!

we are moving!

Having lived in and around this family home for most of my life, my family has decided to move on.

It has been a difficult few years. We started down the renovation path several years ago. We approached builders and architects in an effort to build a home that was functional and usable for both business and family life.

I even started to replace the cladding in preparation of the big build – but it just wasn’t meant to be!

This home was build in post war Sydney – in the early 1950s. It is old, tired, and run down. The work involved in repairing, let alone remodeling this home was just too costly.

In fact sadly if we had continued to remodel and repair the home, it would actually add NO value to the property at all.

Such is life in Sydney, where the median home price is $1 million dollars!

While I could rant about the cost of housing in Sydney, a favourite rant of mine, it is a fact of life in Sydney – and one that we have to live with – or move out!

Since we made this decision about three weeks ago now, I have spent much of every day researching locations, interviewing real estate agents (some of whom I wouldn’t want to let them sell a packet of chips), and visiting open houses.

I will be very glad when it is all over.

It is tiring, and a bit worrying. Apparently we need to sell now, as winter is the best time to sell (you get the highest price), but it is a bad time to buy, as prices are also higher.

While we are not sure just how it will all work out, we will hopefully have our house sold in about two months, and hopefully moving into somewhere else either at the same time, or soon after.

Well it is again 11pm, and I am TIRED!

So off to bed for me,

Bye for now!

Greg.

About Blog of Greg

I consider myself a thinker and I like to discuss everything in life with those around me. Mostly I am serious, sometimes I am funny, and occasionally I am rude. I like to wear my heart on my sleeve and say what I feel, or think! It is important to me to be honest about how I feel and why! I detest pretense, big egos and self importance. I believe that I am no more important than you, and similarly that you are no more important than me! [apparently I should reflect on this more often] This blog is a way of engaging people in different aspects of life; its goal is to present a different view of life and contribute to a broadening of our awareness. While this blog is essentially my opinion, I also understand that there are other opinions out there. Though I encourage discussion, I may “delete” comments that I find are unhelpful, argumentative, or offensive towards myself or another person. Often I write about politics – apparently that is an interest of mine – but I also like to write about other more personal things that affect us in our day to day lives. Along with this blog, I also write to politicians and newspapers; I often present a commentary on my blog about following comments or decisions. That way everyone understands what they have said – and sometimes of course how big a buffoon they are:) Please feel free to comment on my posts, as I would like to hear what you have to say. After all…. Your opinion is just as valid as mine!
