So only one more month left of work and then we shut the doors for good (to the public feb 23, for us 5 days after). I honestly do not know how I am going to last that long without going off on someone.... that being said, I am surprised I haven’t already.
We still have not heard anything about the settlements. But I am thinking that it will be the bare minimum they can get away with, which for me and E is about 4 weeks worth of pay. Woop.... our 7 years boiled down to one months worth of wages after you pull the rug out from under us.... guess I should be happy they are giving us something.
Was bored and unable to sleep in bed the other night, so was looking up things I had heard about First time home buyers loans from the Gov.
To say the max allowance on what the home would cost is a bit sad, yea thanks for giving us the Min (5%) requirement for the down payment, via an interest free loan, but the max allowance for said home is only 280,000 which is equal to getting either a bare bones condo (ugh) , or on the outskirts of the city, which is where I DON’T want to be as we A) don’t have a car (yet) and I don’t even drive.
That being said, I did find a couple cute properties, within the max, a couple condos, a couple major fixer-upers, and a cute bungalow.
But all that would have to wait until I get back to work and actually get settled into a job, and the paperwork for the loan would probably require me having been there at least a year, so looks like none of this would be happening for at least two years anyway.... unless I win the lotto HAHAHAH!
A girl can dream.
