House Hunt Update.

Last week I updated you on our house hunt.  For those of you who want the short and sweet update, we didn't get the house.

For those of you want some more details . . . we heard from our realtor on Wednesday that the first buyer and seller were able to work things out with the inspection and the deal was going to go through.  So we were pretty bummed.  I had an office event that night and wasn't checking my phone and emails.  As I left the event, I saw an email from our realtor telling us that the house didn't appraise for what the first buyers had hoped and that there was still a chance we would get the house. 



Talk about a turn of events.  So we became significantly less bummed since there was the chance we could still get the house.  Well at the end of the week, they were able to work things out.  So we didn't get the house after all.  What a roller coaster ride this has been!

And to add insult to injury, we were going to go see a house this afternoon that we were both pretty excited about, but it was mysteriously taken off the market--it wasn't sold, just removed from the market altogether (after only being on for a week).  Lovely.  Just lovely.

So I am pretty disappointed now and am just trying to be patient.  Although, I may possibly be the most impatient person in the world (ask my husband), so that's not an overly easy task for me.  Thanks to all of you for your words of encouragement in my last update.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that future house updates are much more positive!

Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend.  Happy Monday!

  2. So not fun! Interesting about the 2nd house, probably either had a change of heart or found their own buyer and don't want to pay real estate fees!

  4. Oohhhh so frustrating! Emily, if it makes you feel better, when we look back on the houses we bid on and lost in bidding wars in Toronto we are SO glad we ended up in OUR house. I'm sure you guys will find the one even if it takes a bit longer...

  7. Oh man, that sounds super frustrating. The only positive thing I can think to say is at least it sounds like maybe the housing market is turning around?????
