It's a terrible system. And most of the properties here are sold via auction-- so it's hard to know if you even have a chance. We just got really lucky yesterday, I think. Or maybe it was a huge mistake! Who can say!!

I veer between feeling SO EXCITED and feeling SO SCARED.

It's a super beautiful place close to where we live now-- newish-build, three bedrooms, good access to public transit, walking distance to the CBD and everything else we want.

It was our dream place, but we didn't think the seller would accept our offer since everything is going for way over asking here (like 20% or even 30% in some cases). But the agent called us because the seller is "highly motivated," AKA they're splitting up and the wife wants to sell.

DQ, I know this sounds insane, but no. Instead, you buy and sign the contract with a "subject to finance" clause. Our broker is confident he will get us a loan, but in case something goes extremely wrong, we do have an out.

This whole system is crazy. It makes no sense! I just want a lender to tell me "you're a good girl" before I go off signing any legally binding documents. Good grief.

The system here is all backward. Put in an offer first, get a mortgage later. Australian real estate is insane.

Anyway, I'm going to go barf now.

We have these Brooklinen percale sheets. I like them a lot, and I am definitely a hot sleeper.

To be honest, they are no doubt overly expensive (I remember my mom had these amazing percale sheets that were perfect, and I'm sure she got them at K-Mart), but they are cool and comfortable and basically what you would expect.
