Housing update — we…

Housing update -- we didn't get the place. When the realtor called, he told us that two other bids had come in over the weekend, so we were now in a four-way bidding war, *and* that we were the lowest bid! Given all of that, and that we think the place is already over-priced, we decided to bow out. I'm disappointed, but not as sad as I thought I'd be. So that's...umm....good, I think?

  1. Happy that you aren’t upset and I think you made the right decision. Losing $40k is not a good decision. *hugs*

  2. oh, good. absolutely. look at everything you and K figured out about how you go about buying a house together, and reaching agreement, and bidding, and standing firm.

    now you will be *admirably* prepared for facing the Real House Decision when it comes.

    (and also, well done on not going crazy on the 40k! it is terribly easy to get talked into a too-high bid for a place that you like.)

  3. We’re still a bit wistful about it — none of the others we’ve seen have anything like the character. But we will be patient, and the right house will come to us.
