Let the paperwork commence!

Published on 26 February 2004 in , , , , ,

I am looking forward to this weekend. For the first time in several weeks, I can rest and relax without feeling like I should be trapsing around estate agents, and wandering around street after street. On the other hand, I've now got a swamp full of paperwork and phonecalls to deal with.

Next to the computer is the 'no pile' - a pile of paper giving details of a pile of properties. Each has the estate agents description of the place, photograph and dimensions. Stapled to that are some scrawled notes listing my views and opinions of the place. But have we been looking in the wrong place for a place to buy? Or have we been looking in the right place and we're about to get distracted looking in the wrong one? And does this make any sense?
