The Seekers – A World Of Our Own

seekers-1

My partner and I are on the lookout for a place to call our own. Only in the last few months have we commenced this pursuit of happiness and find ourselves trawling through one real estate ad after another in the evenings. We seem to be spending most of our weekends driving around various towns and getting an idea of an area, which is an exhausting process when it happens week after week, but satisfying nonetheless as we begin to narrow down the places we would be happy to settle down. We are the seekers and our journey thus far has not been in vain. Sure, we don’t actually own anything yet, but there have been a couple of close calls where we have been in the final bidding and just missed out. The icing on the cake has to go to the property where we had to revoke our offer after finding out some structures on a property were illegally installed and not approved by council. Oh the joy. With each loss though there is more learning and understanding of the process, more familiarity with an area and more wisdom in dealing with the agents we come across. I have come to realise how much easier the process can be when you have a pleasant, down-to-earth real estate agent by your side. This is not always the case, as we found out during our very first bidding experience, with a chap who turned out to be quite the dodgy operator. You live and learn.

Seeing as property seems to be what consumes a lot of our time these days, I thought it only best to post some of the great real estate ads on Google these days to lighten the mood.

Don’t forget to listen to The Seekers clip at the end.

    I know that feeling all too well. I made offers on 5 houses before I had a success. I too had a house fail its building inspection due to unapproved building (among other things). With each place you add an extra layer of learning and an extra filter that helps you get the best one in the end. Good Luck

    Been there done that! A good Realtor is worth their weight in gold. Thanks for sharing the video. I had never heard this song before. Very cool!
