When we bought our apartment, we kept all our documents in a Dropbox folder (I'll never forget this 'House Hunting Main Folder', because I probably consulted 1000+ times in a couple of months).
Initially, we only had our personal files in the folder: payslips, bank account extracts, phone bills, copies of passports & IDs, bank statements, etc.
Because we were buying an apartment in a foreign country, we had to translate all our payslips from before, and we had many bank accounts, so it was a :fire: hot :fire: mess.
We had to be super reactive for every stage (bidding war, solicitor deadlines, etc), so it was a life savior to have all the docs available in one single place, accessible anywhere (& on mobile), especially when the bank was asking for them for the 7th time 😅
As the process went on, we had more and more docs to keep track of: price & mortgage simulation that we did on Excel, contracts that we had to sign, mortgage requests & approvals, etc.
It is quite hard to adult, but honestly being able to keep track of all our files gave me so much peace of mind that it avoided a bunch of massive panic moments - so Dropbox definitely made it easier 😊
Yeah I was thinking exactly that at one point - if it's this intense for renting, imagine if we were buying! But I definitely feel like I have a better idea of how to stay organised enough to keep it all rolling whenever we get around to that stage. Here's to making being a grown up easier! 😂
