Buying a Place

Thanks to Lemuel Craft

My parents have always been overprotective of me, so I wasn’t surprised that when I bought my new house they wanted to be involved. I am single, so it wasn’t bad to have a few extra eyes with me when I was house hunting. I know they think that I am naïve, but I actually think I did a great job in choosing a place and getting a great deal. My parents came along to look at places with me, but I was the one who did all of the work and negotiation with my real estate broker. The official closing for the house is next week, and it is very exciting. Of course my parents are butting in sand lecturing me about how I need to get ADT security Ontario, and make certain repairs. I can’t wait to be out of their house and in my own. I am so ready to be free of my parents’ nagging and constant opinions. I love them dearly, but it is time for me to move on and have my own space. I will still be close to them, but I think they will back off after I leave their house.
