“Double doors. So far, so good.”

So, here’s a little update on my life at the moment.
Me and the not-so-new boyf (it’s been a year today – agh!) have started viewing flats to rent, as we both want to move out of home and in together.

Let me tell you, this is quite a painful experience. Property in our area is expensive and you get diddlysquat for your pound.

This in itself has led to a few heated discussions about renting vs buying. Basically I don’t have enough savings by a long way to be able to contribute to a mortgage, but if we both stayed at home for another year, then we might have a good deposit. My feelings are the opposite. I’d like to start living in a space that I could call my own.

In fact, one of my main criteria is to have space/room for a wardrobe. I’m taking my inspiration from Carrie in Sex and the City.

“Double doors. So far, so good.”

How do I make my wish come true?

How about you, rent or buy?

    Oh do not get me started on rental/property prices. In my local area you can't get a one bed in the drug infested side of town for under £750 a month! My brother pays less than that on a three bed house in Leeds!
