House hunting

After nearly 7 months in Perth we have finally gotten to a point where we have agreed on a suburb in Perth to purchase our first home in. When we got to Perth we lived with my parents for 6 weeks and then decided to rent. We live on a beautiful street in a suburb called Innaloo with a gorgeous park down the end of the street. Our neighbour has lived in the same house for 50 years and has the most amazing rose garden. She loves Liam and we have made friends with most of the people on our street.

Richard works around the corner and Liam's nursery is a 2 min drive from our home. It works really well on our morning run of dropping me at the train station, Liam at nursery and Richard on the way to his new office that he moved into today.

But we want our own home. We need to nest and after 7 years of being gypsy like, the time has come to step on the property ladder.

We have found a great suburb in Perth where you can purchase a large family home on a big block. We've looked at all the schools in the area and because Perth gets so hot, we really wanted a home close to the beach so we could get that all important sea breeze in the summer. Perth's real estate is getting like Sydney now, but I think we have down our research and stumbled across a good suburb with some growth. The best thing about this suburb is that it adjoins suburbs that are really taking off and its still well priced for the time being.

Here is a house that we are looking at tomorrow that we are super excited about:
