Metricon Frustration - Quick update

After falling for the Langdon 28 so quickly it was even more depressing realising that the dream of building and living in that home was a lot more expensive than we thought.

We had another tour through the house with the agent and another meeting to discuss the quote. No matter what we did we couldn't get the house under our budget with room to spare for the Studio appointment.

In the end we both left the display quite frustrated and upset. We had long discussion in the car on the drive home about if we should just go for it and spend the money. The house would be the one we make a future in and would we be happy living in a home when we know we could have spent a little extra for those features that so appealed to us in the first place?! The bank had already advised that we could borrow a lot more than what we set our budget however we also wanted to ensure we could live the lifestyle the house would provide.

In the end it was decided that we would have a quick look around at what else was out there in the market and compare the prices. We realised we had pretty much just jumped head first into the first home we both liked.

Whilst we had made the decision to look around we were both slightly confident that we wouldn't find anything else we liked in comparison to the Langdon's design and floor plan so we were mentally preparing ourselves for a return visit to the Craigieburn display.
