The frustration continues…

We FINALLY heard back from the bank that owns the house we put an offer on… they didn’t choose us. They didn’t even have the courtesy to counteroffer or at least call to say ‘Sorry, someone has more money than you. Ha Ha!’

Back to square one… again… and again…and again...

We looked this weekend and surprisingly found two winners – well – two fixer-uppers that aren’t THAT bad. Rather than put all our eggs in one basket, we decided to offer on both – fastest to respond wins. By 9:30 this morning, things were already off to a rough start. One of the houses sold yesterday, they just hadn’t found the time to update the listing yet. The other was in escrow before but fell out when the bank (yes, another bank owned property) refused to come down on the price. Will that be our same fate? Who knows.

I’m a little frustrated… and a little down.

Hang in there Becks, it only took dad and I three years to finally get this property. Qualifications, perk tests, access problems, etc. various complications that we had no power or control over. It seemed as though our desires or dreams would never come to fruition, but here we are! Now.....doesn't that make you feel better? :-) I KNOW that you've been waiting all day to hear that!

Love always, mom
