Pastures new

We bought our flat six years ago, so I’d completely forgotten what it was like to house hunt until my friend decided she wanted a change. Rather than buy straight away, she has decided to rent for a little while, to see if she likes the area before plunging knee-deep into property ownership. I was really excited about the prospect of helping my friend to find somewhere to live. In my mind, that meant walking around our beautiful city and finding the best places to eat cake whilst we milled over property to rent in Edinburgh on the Strutt & Parker website.

Excitedly, she found one in the south of the city. Ok, so it’s not so close to me, but it’s a part of town I’m looking forward to discovering with her … there’s many more cakes to be eaten and cocktails to be drunk! What have you been up to recently?

    I think I’d probably do the same as your friend. When I bought last year, I was quite restricted – I knew where I could afford and what I wanted, so just went for it – but if I were thinking of moving further out of town rather than being in the centre, I’d want to be sure!

    I see what you mean Gwen. It’s really made me think about possibly renting in the future if we weren’t completely sure of where we wanted to move to. x
