So as you may know, Hubs and I are moving to Wangaratta in July, and we headed up last weekend to have a look around the town and get a feel for the place. And thankfully and fortunately, we love it! It has a lovely feel to it and I can really see us being happy there. We also did a bit of house hunting, as we are keen to buy there instead of renting. Why, you ask? Well, the rental prices per week are comparable to mortgage repayments on a small-ish loan. There are some houses in Wangaratta under the $200,000 mark, so we thought it would be a great opportunity to get into this "market" that I hear grown-ups talking about.
Plus, it'd be REALLY cool to have a place of our own.
Our visit gave us more of an idea of the type of house we are looking for, the areas of Wangaratta we're interested in living in, and an idea of how we'd get around. So we're currently looking at a few different options, doing the sums, and will hopefully come up with something in the next month or 2. It's all very grown up and exciting!
Oh, and we're looking at 3 bedroom homes so we can have house guests! Ever wanted to visit Wang?
