… i see the apartment on Tuesday 20th of April. Up in Auckland that weekend enthusing to Colleen.
During the following week i walk into a few banks to chat about home loan options.
Last weekend, Colleen comes down to Welly to have a look and gives the thumbs up.
Monday 12h00 i see a solicitor to act as conveyancer. At 14h00 i get a pre-approved loan document from National Bank. At 13h30 i sit with Norma Bryant, the estate agent, at Dixon Street Deli and put in an offer for $325,000.
She rings back just over an hour later. Nyet, come see the countersigned document. Back at the deli at 15h00. They say $365,000. I say $350,000 final.
At 15h45 Norma calls to say they’ve signed, the deal is done.
Since Monday the home loan has been finalized, the conveyancing is under way, i’ve arranged the money transfer to cover the bond deposit and notified my landlord that i will be moving out of the matchbox on Friday, 11th June to move into my new home.
Is that fast or what? Go me!
