Neither the DH or I are sure if we are disappointed or relieved. We both loved the house and, believe it or not, had already had a two year rental contract offer.
But someone outbid us for the house. By a lot (well, I consider $100,000 at lot) which put him well over asking price and cash at that. Must really need that particular house. I shudder to think what it is going to do for house pricing in the area.
On a better note –
my drive to work this morning was delayed. After five minutes of watching them wander back and forth in the road I finally got out and snapped the picture. Since that had no effect I swallowed my pride and went after the trio of pirates yelling and waving my arms.
They finally conceded me the right of way.
Good grief, they have grown up and migrated from Adelaide very rapidly!
Sorry about the house…obviously not meant to be….are you sure you do not want to live on that island Holly?
Holy cow, that’s a pretty huge outbid. In this market, I’m not sure paying over listed price by that much makes any sense at all. I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for at the right time.
