Re: What did you compromise on? (property search)
I actually got way more than I wanted (a few km of farm land, underfloor geothermal heating, 2 balconies, 2 living rooms, 2 kitchens etc) for more or less what we were willing to pay.
The only compromise was that the house came full of the previous occupants crap that I had to chuck out and I will have to wire electricity to the external garage.
We got very lucky with this house as the deceased parent's kids wanted a quick sale and we jumped in front of 30 people in the queue because my brother in law is a notaire.
Edit: We were also just about to go on our honeymoon when the house popped up for sale so we were not quite ready to purchase. Luckily we had enough savings to make everything work.
