Hello, I recently brought my first home (i settle in a month) after a 6 month battle to secure a place. I ended up picking up a nice renovated cottage style home in Maitland, NSW. Originally i wanted to stay where i’m currently renting in the Lake Macquarie NSW area but soon found out that properties were becoming too expensive for me or at the time i didn’t want to stretch 30-70k to obtain one.
With my house i feel like i made a few compromises, its a bit smaller than id like 373sm block with a small yard and i also had to move away further from the lake/beaches. It was under my set budget and i can easily afford the repayments on it.
Now Im sitting here thinking if i made the right compromises or should i of stretched a bit more to obtain a house in a more prime location? I honestly feel a bit stressed over the whole thing and just wanted to hear some of your stories if you ever did anything similar?
Thanks in advance
