I just exchanged Contracts and purchased my first place!!

This is the reason why I have been telling everyone I might put my car in storage, Places in London are worth more than a hens tooth.

The changeover date is 18 March 2003 when I get my keyes and move out of my parents

No money for mods or anything, Im broke! :(

Hey congratulations!

Housewarming GTG :)

I was in so much debt when I bought my first place I had to sell my car and use public transport for nearly a year :eek: before I could afford a replacement.

But the freedom of having your own place :D - until you get your hat pinned on by some ladyfriend :eek:

Homeowner by the 18th of march, so you will be at least £20k richer by the end of this year if current price hikes are anything to go by !! - theoretically anyway :)

My house was valued at a mere £74,000 three years ago - I had it valued again about month or so ago by the same company - £140k !!!!!

It always seems hard at the start, but it gets easier very quickly - I still remember my mum refusing to buy a 5 bed house in Cambridge for £4800 - because she couldnt live with a "millstone that big round her neck !" - last year she spent more than that on a Holiday !!!

Smile :) because as much as cars are nice - there is no better/safer place to put your money than bricks and mortar !!
