As in – what kind of place? A house? An apartment? Did you love your place at first sight?
Why am I asking all these questions you wonder?
I want to buy my own place. And there are two possibilities – I can buy a small apartment with a rather large outdoor terrace (balcony) or I can buy a house with a small garden.
They are the same price and about what I can afford. The apartment has a nice view on the river and the house is in a relatively quiet street. The house has slightly bigger rooms, but has a small living room. The flat is a 2 bed flat but the smallest bedroom is very small. They are both about 10-15 years old.
I would really love to return to the town where I was born, and that’s where those two options are.
The thing is – I can’t really make my mind up about it. I think it’s secretely because I haven’t really fallen in love with either of them as what I would really want is an old (ish) town house with built in atmosphere. (= most probably too expensive for me)
So here is my question – how did you pick your place? And did you love it at first sight? What would you do if you were me?
