If you know me or follow this blog, you would remember that we’ve been living in a condo in Kelana Jaya when we first got married and had all our kids.
Three years ago we sold that condo because we sort of outgrew the unit, and we’ve been renting a house.
I was pretty contented with renting a house, but we kept our eyes open for any opportunities since the property market was really down and it’s a buyer’s market.
After 1 year + of searching (and changing our minds a few times), we’ve found a landed house with a suitable location, size and price.
We went through many rounds of thinking, calculations, and spreadsheets, and we decided to take the plunge and commit to the purchase.
That was all decided in April 2019 and we received the house right before Christmas last year. Right now we are in the middle of some refurbishment work.
I know you must be thinking … “wah, a landed house in PJ, you must be loaded“. Actually no… we chose a smaller affordable house and the down payment came from selling the condo. Plus we are borrowing a lot from the bank.
OMG I have to tell you it’s not straightforward to get this house. There were so many difficult moments in the transaction.
I will try to document the various experiences I’ve gone through here on this blog for future reference.
Gung Hei Fatt Choy to all readers. Wish you and your family good health always.
