The ballot for Coombs was drawn today and it looks like a total of 904 people registered for 190 blocks.
We were drawn somewhere in the middle of this, so I guess it’s unlikely we’ll get a look in. Or will we?
I assume that not all the first 200 or so will actually end up choosing a block through a number of factors such as cost or their choices already being taken when it comes to their turn.
So, considering we are 458 on the list, is there anyone out there who had experience of past ballots where they were far down the list, but still had the opportunity to choose a block, and actually got a block they were happy with?
Considering we will have to put a 10% deposit down when choosing a block, so we will have to go through a process of at least getting a loan or a deposit bond, is it worth the hassle if it’s not likely there will be anything left when it gets to our turn?
