Week in Review: Letting Go of the Homeowner Dream…for Now

I think it’s finally hit me that my HB and I are going to be taking an extended break from house hunting. Our lives were so busy and stressful when we were looking at houses every weekend, looking back to January I kind of have no idea how we did that and led normal lives. Maybe it’s because we didn’t.[…]

Can You Live in the Moment While Preparing for the Future?

You may have already gathered this if you’ve been a longtime reader of my blog, but preparing for the future has always been at the top of my priority list. I’ve been like this since I was a young kid. Seriously. For example, I have this very vivid memory of being in grade 2 and having a crush on this[…]

Week in Review: Why I’m Glad I’ve Got an Emergency Fund

Since I started reading about personal finance, I’ve always known that having an emergency fund was important. Still, it isn’t until an emergency actually happens in my life that I really feel like “Damn, I’m so glad I set this money aside!” Not matter how much planning you do in your life, something unexpected will always come up and most[…]

Beware of the Buyer Representation Agreement When Shopping for a House

In the short time my HB and I have been shopping for a house (or condo, or townhouse, god we’ll take anything we can actually afford in this ridiculous market!), we’ve learned a ton. For instance, never look at a place without a handy house hunting checklist. Another thing we learned is the importance of understanding what a buyer representation[…]

Week in Review: Valentine’s Day and the Start of Something New

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Also, happy 3-day long weekend to anyone living in Ontario! It’s been so busy since my HB and I got back home from the holidays, this extra day of rest was desperately needed. Plus, it gives me some time to play around with this new idea I got. Well, I’ve actually had this idea since FinCon, but it[…]

Another Week, Another Round of House Hunting in Toronto

It’s been about a month since my HB and I started house hunting in Toronto and calling it a whirlwind 4 weeks would be an understatement. We came into it thinking that we’d just see what was out there and if we found something that made financial sense we’d consider putting in an offer. Oh how naive we were. As[…]

Week in Review: Buying a House is Emotional, Time-Consuming and Goddamn Expensive

I can’t believe we’re already into February! January was such an insane month, I really hope February slows down a bit. I mean, we just got back from Vancouver on January 6 then almost immediately starting looking at houses to buy. Then about twice a week since then we’ve been at showings or bidding on houses. I know the real[…]

My First Bidding War in Toronto (But Not My Last)

Last week was a pretty intense week including a home inspection and my first bidding war in Toronto. But let me start from the beginning. Two weeks ago my HB and I went on our third round of house hunting. It was on a weekday night and up until that point we hadn’t seen any houses that we wanted to[…]
