House hunt come to end

The house hunting has come to an end or we ended. The chaos related to house searching seems unending and we decided to put a full stop to the weariness and stress by choosing the best among the better exists. We aren’t content with any house during our search mission and being first time intended to search for a house rather unlike going with the heart of desire by how we chose the current residence... without much options of houses and within our budget we picked a house to relieve ourselves from the house tension. It doesn’t mean we couldn’t find a content house but what seems to fulfill our needs aren’t belong to us or forced to give away for certain reasons unmatched between us and owners.

Except one or two, most of the apartments showed red signal for allowing pets and having pet is one specific reason that we couldn't get a house we wanted. The brokers who promise to finalize certain houses were all seems liars and actors, their intentions were only on getting commission rather listening what we say or owners convey. We didn't believe their words and we were also on our own search for houses since we have already said the owner that we quit house this month end, we have no time to wait and see further.  So we decided to move into a house near Adyar Sishya School, even we aren't totally satisfied with the house it wasn't too bad to avoid or lack of comfort to reside. It was a duplex house and we are taking the ground portion.

It was a very quiet and calm area except for being busy at morning and evening while the school open and close… cars seems to stand in long queue to drop and pickup students since almost students study here were from wealthy background. I was born and brought up in Adyar until we shift to apartment in Thiruvanmiyur, 8 years back, but it was my father who wants to let back to Adyar or close to our native house there because he was quite depend on Adyar for almost sufficient work. This house shifting is also gonna be a temporary one, not only because the owner has plan of demolishing the house and built a new one there after 3 years, we would also shift if we find a better one than this when the situation was favor.

We have planned to shift home at the weekend and if done I won’t be able to blog or flickr for some time until reconnected with internet. It was the brokers who force us to end up the house hunt because being exhausted by their way of making wandering and showing the same house we have already shown by someone. Some brokers fear and hesitate to talk to owners in reducing the rent and they also have no clear idea about the facilities and only we have to convey them by talk with owners but what they want was, was only commission. By searching house, I think anyone could become a broker and what they do was, go through the classifieds and give separate Ads to the already exists by just mentioning his mobile number and area alone. So we can’t guess which is genuine and for a single house there are multiple brokers making turmoil.

You could have tried searching for houses by yourselves from classifieds, freeads and online websites, no? I agree that this route may also be difficult, but I know a few people who did that.

Glad you finally found a new place Jeevan and that the stress of house-hunting is over. I live in a duplex as well. Will you be posting pics of the new home on here?

well, i am glad you found a suitable place to move to - even if it isn't perfect. i hope the move will go well for all of you.

i am sorry the realtors and brokers are such scammers. that would make the whole search terribly frustrating.

DI - We have checked all the top websites from time to time... there are many ads almost posed by brokers! And also there are very few ads that allow pets.

Keith - Once we shifted I will post pictures of the house :)

Tex - they brain washes so well! I too hope it goes off well

Good luck for the new house! I hope you settle down here happily, though it might take some time to get adjusted to the new house.

We were living nearby 15 years back! Nice area.

The brokers take commission from you and the owners, double dhamaka! If they reduce the rent their one percent will come down! We normally look for houses in Adyar times, local paper, which is good.

Anyway, all the best!

Once you live in a locality long enough, you get attached to that..in Hyderabad..Karvy helped us in buying the house and they were quite good.

I have gone through all the same nightmares searching for a house or condo to stay. There are so many factors to consider besides arm twisting with the realtors.

Good luck to you Jeevan. HOME SWEET HOME!
