Towards the end of last year, we realized that we were ready to leave the rental market & although TOTALLY intimidating, wanted our own home. 😬 •• We spent *many* months trying to figure out what was important to us, and danced between staying in Mt. Pleasant, buying a condo in the West End, and briefly considered houses in East Van. We were struggling with the decision because it felt *so* permanent. It also felt like we had one opportunity to enter the housing market and if we didn’t leap now, we would be priced out. •• Throughout the process, we talked a lot about how we wanted to design our life (current & future), and both recognized that nature, the ocean, access to mountains & trails, silence, the stars & room to grow (a family) were all important to us. •• One day a light bulb 💡 went on and we talked about the idea of moving to North Van. 🌲 Parts of it felt unknown, but once we started talking through our fears, we realized that it was everything we wanted. (Yeah the commute to downtown might be ugh, but everything else… 😍). •• This pic was taken this summer in Cates Park. ☀️ (We often ended up at a trail or beach after looking at open houses.) We had spent months looking at places (and bidding on places!), and hadn’t found “the one” yet — but we were positive that if we were patient, we would. 🙏🏼 #NorthVan #SoulRecovery
