This is as close as we are going to get tonight to a new house… not through lack of trying though!

Today we offered on two houses and have lost both.

At 9.30 am this morning we even had a verbal acknowledgement that our offer would be accepted… but by the time we got our offer in they had had another for significantly more. Devastated.

But we had a backup… so we put an offer in on that one for a deadline sale at 5pm. Our offer was competitive but the news came back that the owners were expecting significantly more (read: dream land) so that one fell through as well.

To say I’m feeling flat about the house hunt tonight would be an understatement and a half.

Nothing for it though other than to pick ourselves up and keep looking… although I suspect it’ll be next week before my heart and soul are really up to it again.
