We are not actually looking to move so I rarely see what is for sale in our area. When I look online at real estate I am looking at places far far away from where we are now. Places where you can still buy big blocks, where you have no idea if your neighbours are home or not.
Looking is one thing, but the decision to move to the country is too big. I always struggle with the decision about if I really want to leave the city altogether.
Yesterday I noticed the perfect place for us in the local newspaper. JUST AROUND THE CORNER.
The house itself didn't bother me too much, but for sale is one of the last remaining super sized blocks. 3000m. This is better than gold dust.
I know we can't afford such a place, but I want it anyway.
Today was the open for inspection and we peeked through the house with a handful of others. Not as many as I expected, but enough to know that other people want it too.
We have spent the whole day wishing things were a bit different and that we had the capacity to buy this house. It is torture, because we just can't.
I don't know why we even looked through in the first place, knowing that this was likely. Perhaps we were hoping to see a ramshackle house that we hated, a street landscape that was less appealing, or too much work required. But we saw a dream house which is exactly that. A dream.
Do you look at houses that are well beyond your means?
