I have learned to go with the punches and not make waves. On the day I was supposed to sign the compromesso (preliminary contract/agreement to purchase), the deal fell through. The apartment I fell in love with back in August was suddenly no longer my future apartment. Technically the apartment was defined as being ďcommercial,Ē yet it was in the process of being changed to ďresidential.Ē Unfortunately, between my bank not accepting it and a miscalculation of the height of the ceilings, the chances of it becoming ďresidentialĒ were practically nil. The owner wasnít going to wait and therefore, I had to move on.
