Yep, that’s right. I started house-hunting back in November and after looking at about 50 houses in the Oshawa/Whitby area, I finally found the one. It’s a nice little link home in Oshawa, up near the Five Points Mall. I really like the layout of the house, it’s in a good location, it has a decent sized yard and it has a garage. For my first place, I couldn’t ask for more.
I put an offer in about a month ago, did a bit of back and forth negotiating and we settled on a really good price. Now is a great time for first time homebuyers, since house prices have dropped and interest rates are really low. I’m off to the lawyer’s in about an hour to get the keys, and I’m pumped. Tomorrow I’ll be doing some cleaning and getting some things set up and Saturday will be the big moving day.
I’ll keep everyone updated and post some pictures in the next few days.
