We had 5 viewings to go to on Saturday, and one today – so off we went down the road from our temporary let to see the house. It looked cute from the front, so we were optimistic. The lady who showed up was much more cheerful and friendly than the last guy, and actually tried to sell the place to us (not literally).
It was a good size, 2 bedrooms and a small garden, and really good location. It was a bit rough round the edges and quite old, but we liked it, and we were also scared that it would take weeks to find another house if we didn’t put an offer in for this one straight away and waited instead. So that night we prepared our ‘pack’ and application form to try and snag the house!
