Missing Old Home

My wife and I just bought our absolute dream home. It’s this little cottage place that also has a very modern interior. I love it, but I can tell the love my wife has for it is next level. Her eyes absolutely lit up when we saw the listing. While this is a super exciting time for us, there are a few things that are slightly less exciting. Yes, there’s the whole hassle of having to pack your things and move, but for me this isn’t a big deal. For me, I’m struggling to come to terms with the fact we’ll be leaving our Carlton home. Our Carlton home is this lovely property that was built in the early 1900s. My wife felt it was best for us to move to a property that has a bigger yard for our kids and that was closer to schools.

I will miss this home. It was the first home my wife and I bought together and it’s very unique. We had the best conveyancing lawyers when we bought this property and they agreed that this is among one of the nicest homes they have ever seen. Our new home is lovely too. It’s in a more quiet area and has plenty of land for our kids to enjoy themselves. I think it’s just hard saying goodbye to a place we’re so used to.

We’re buying this new home privately, directly through the seller. I’ve found the process quite stressful but my wife is doing a great job keeping me calm and at ease. She’s taking care of all the things that need to be done such as liaising with the seller and finding someone who is an expert in conveyancing. Prahran has a solicitor that she was talking to, in fact, I think the sellers of the property we are buying have a solicitor from Prahran. I’m not sure if we will be using the Prahran solicitor or one from Carlton, either way, I still plan on shedding some tears when I sign this beautiful home over to someone else.
