  1. A big life change- getting a mortgage

    Have you settled in yet?
  2. A big life change- getting a mortgage

    Well, there is a strawberry shortage last week due to the dry weather. We ran out about 10am on Christmas Eve. Many unhappy customers. One blamed the Labour party.

    HA! You would have gone passed our house. We live on the corner of Broadway and Calico Line. I assume the bus came into town via Fielding by Calico Line. Saw Star Wars last week in Wanganui, they had the better time table as the one in Fielding had the movie showing at night, but if you ever get the chance, go the cinema in Fielding, it's great. It has a cafe, and you get big comfortable seats etc.. Also, do not go to KFC on Thursday and Friday nights in Wanganui, unless you are prepared to wait for an eternity.

    We had a quiet Christmas at home. Bit hard when the both of us have to work.
  5. Oh hell yeah! What a great movie. Man, I gotta see it again.

    Isn't there a motorbike street race in Wanganui on Boxing Day?

    That's a long way. Did you go through Marton?

    It's hot and dry. Manawatu Wanganui are in a drought now. Our lawns are brown. No water restrictions yet, but I am so glad we are on town supply. We did have showers today, but not enough to soak the dry parched land. But at least it's hot, not like last summer, where we didn't have one.

    When we moved into our new house last year, it was just down the road, but took us 2 Weeks But after the packing, cleaning, and unpacking, it was worth it

    You need permission from the neighbours to dig the road for internet? Ha! Welcome to Wanganui.
  12. A big life change- getting a mortgage

    Welcome to the neghbourhood. We have been in our house just over a year and the bank gave us a $18 000.00 equity that we can use to pay off some other debts, credit cards etc. So we are going to do that and cut up those cards from hell. Also, our house has increased in value by $30 000.00 in the last 12 months. Once you settle in, and you're resting in the back yard, sipping your coffee, you wonder why did we stress over the whole damn thing

    Yep, it is a lot of money. You don't have to get a building report, but you do need a LIM report (Land Information Memorandum) from the council where you are looking to buy. It shows the plumbing, drainage, permits on any renovations, history of floods, earthquakes etc,. Banks won't do a home loan without this report.

    Someday we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny.

    Bulls NZ Its a horrible place to drive. It's on the main highway between Auckland and Wellington, and there is a McDonalds, Subway, cafes, two service stations etc. And the idiots that can't drive or walk across the road. It's a cop's paradise.
