Housing. Bleh.

OK, I've been living in Katwijk for quite a number of years now. I still like it, but that doesn't mean I'm not looking around for another place. One for myself. In all honesty I think it'll be at least a year and a half before I have some financial reserves. Hopefully house prices will have dropped somewhat by then (not betting on it). So I stumbled upon a website talking about the starterloan and -grant. Some cities in NL will help a first-time buyer get his house by financing a part of the money with a loan that's free of payments AND intrest for at least 3 years. Trust me, that helps.

And today I found out that nearly every city has one specific condition. You must already be living in the city where you want to buy your house, only THEN can you apply for the starterloan. Great. I can get help buying a house in Katwijk. I don't WANT to keep living here in this sleepy religious fishing village. I much rather want to have a place of my own in a somewhat bigger town that actually has somewhat of a nightlife. Leiden, Alphen, Hilversum, Schiedam, that's the kind of town I'm looking for. Meh.

How about renting a place in another town? I'd obviously want to come along, if possible, but even so. Buying might seem better.

As I told you yesterday, no need to worry, I'm not talking about the near future. EVENTUALLY, I want a place of my own, but I don't see that happening within the next year and a half. And I'm not looking forward to moving twice in a short time, so I'd rather skip the starter mortgage.
