New house for the new baby...My husband and I decided to escape from the rat race in Gauteng and moved down to KZN in September 2010. We wanted to start our family down by the coast. Initially we rented a house, but this turned into a nightmare after a few months. The stingy landlord didn't care that the whole place was falling apart and we had to do without warm water and proper sanitation for days and weeks at a time. We realized that we would have to get a place of our own, but didn't think that we would be able to afford a decent place with our budget. We took a leap of faith and started looking for a house of our own. When we finally found our dream house, we were advised by the agent to apply for the bond through SA Home Loans. The service was great right from the start and the bond was approved within a few weeks. SA Home Loans even offered us a first time buyer's package where the first 2 years' installments is at a lower rate to make it affordable for those young families trying to make a start in life. A few weeks later, we found out that I am pregnant with our first baby ( a little girl.) We are so happy and proud in our lovely new house and I look forward to decorating my spacious baby room in pink! Our baby is due in March 2012. Thank you SA Home Loans for making our dream - a house by the sea - a reality!
