Took all of 4 days for us to look for and purchase our dream flat. As of now, I can barely believe it myself.
Just two hours ago, we signed an “option to purchase” for a wonderful flat that’s totally done up and has no main need for us to do more. Think with just a fresh coat of paint and a change of the toilet seats and we’re able to move in. Of course, we’ll need to buy ourselves a bed as well as all the essential electrical appliances that makes modern living possible, such as microwave oven, fridge, TV, DVD player, sound system, etc. But we don’t have to exactly think about those until about 2-3 months down the road as it would take that long for the whole process of getting a HDB flat to happen.
Am still very overwhelmed with this huge step that we’ve taken. It’s a huge financial decision both of us had to make as it would tie us down for quite a number of years. Think I will hardly be able to sleep tonight.
