Highs and Lows

We found a house. 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath, full, unfinished basement, 2100 square feet of living space. Good neighboorhood, less than 15 minutes to work. Not a lot of land, but a great backyard with a pool and a playstructure (swings, slide, fort kind of thing). We were all set to draw up paper work and make an offer tomorrow.

Our agent called us today after church.

The owner accepted an offer last night.

That was the 4th house that we've really liked that has sold before we've had a chance to make an offer. And we've only been in the market a week.

So, now its back to square one. And I'm sad now.

Lesson learned: don't wait if you want to make an offer. Good houses in our price range go fast.

House hunting is so hard! Marc and I went through that same thing before we finally got our condo! Keep trying and something will work out! Good luck!
