Ms Betterhome

A momentous day

We looked at a house yesterday. It’s not one we’re planning on buying, but going to the inspection means It Has Begun.

It had been with the same owners for 40 years, and other than updates to carpets & paint, it was more or less original. We liked the house, & the neighbourhood; but had a semi-demoralising chat with the agent, who reckoned that it was the kind of house that builders bid for. He says they will often pay $20 000 more than ‘average’ buyers, because they get materials & labour much cheaper, and can turn over a renovation fast. And they look for the same places we are looking for – good bones, unrenovated.

Ah well, the hunt for a better home (with space for a veggie garden, if not dungeon)  is on at last. We’re patient & we’ll find it.

PS: The Bercat East Timor Fair Trade Organic Espresso is deeee-licious. I only drink one cup a day, and I want it to have ooomph. This coffee delivers.
