Well, I’ve started looking for a property to purchase. I’ve never done this before, so it’s all a bit new to me. I’ve talked with a lender about a mortgage, found out how much I can borrow and I had a look around some flats last night.
Afterwards, I discussed the ins and outs of the property markets with many friends and have a much better idea about what I’m doing.
I’ve come to the conclusion this could be long and protracted, and possibly slightly stressful. I’ve also decided that houses converted into multiple flats is not for me, purpose built flats – either small blocks or maisonettes – are the way to go.
Fortunately, I spent this evening away from the property market, with a violin lesson and a few frames of snooker. I revisited a piece I’d learnt a while ago, the theme to Star Wars, and was pleasantly surprised at how well I played it – ok, the fourth note of the opening took a little time to accomplish, but the rest was all good. I guess I must be improving, at least something good has happened today. 🙂
