My mom and two younger brothers back home [Philippines] are planning on moving to a new fresher place. With the past months of too much rain, the little house they are renting now is some kind of “When it rains, it pours”… like literally. Even though they aren’t complaining, it breaks my heart to know that they are residing in a not-so-cool place. After spending at least a couple of hours of chatting with them everyday for the the past week, it is good news to hear that they are looking for a new abode to rent that they can call home for the next years to come until we’re able to save enough to purchase one.
I don’t know how to explain it really but it feels like I am so excited for them. Though oceans apart, I try to help search for a better place by Googling for prospects. So far, they’ve been to three houses which later have been crossed out from the list. My family’s going to call the owner of another townhouse, visit it and hopefully this time, everything will turn out well. This one’s a bit more expensive but is still not above our budget so I am really crossing my fingers on this one!
How about you? Do you or your family back home rent a place? Are you planning on buying your own house and lot or perhaps a condo unit for them one day?
