For those of you wondering, since starting this quest we’ve seen about 50 to 60 houses. We put one offer on a bank owned house. It seems the bank didn’t even know they had the house until we made the offer. Great right? Who would miss something they didn’t know they had. Wrong! The bank decided they wanted it and would sell it in auction instead of selling it to us, awesome. Disappointing yes, but ok fine, we had more to see.
Then we found a great house with everything we wanted and put in a very nice offer only to find that someone had just beat us to it and the seller didn’t want to have a bidding war. Really? Really?!?! The light at the end of the tunnel went from bright and big to small and dismal. Exhaustion, disappointment, and utter frustration had all set in making this a bitter pill to swallow. The next morning I had tears in my eyes as I watched HGTV, thinking, I want a kitchen that I hate and a bathroom I have to redo! After some sleep and maybe a drink a two, I’m back to being positive and remembering all things happen for a reason. Third times a charm?!
And on the plus side, I’ll have more adventures to post which makes me happy and is great for my sanity in this long, long journey. So thank you to anyone who reads this for keeping me sane!
