Awwww...and I thought I liked it a lot. Someone outbid us on the house. We thought we had a pretty good shot since we offered the list price with pro-rated property tax and paid closing costs...guess not. Some real estate tycoon must have swooped in, or that's what I'm telling myself anyway. =o) At least our best offer made it in time, that makes me feel better. No busting water pipes...though that would have been rather exciting. =o) With Luke to reign me in when needed, I'll probably try to make the house we're buying look like that one in the end...on a budget of course. Perks to the other house we're looking at that keep me cheerful: a basement for toys etc. and lower property taxes-which are crazy high right now (though they capped property taxes finally and raised sales tax in IN to 7%, instead of 6%, starting tomorrow).
So on with the hunt. I wanted to give you all an update (Jen usually knows what's going on from the blog before I catch her on the phone hee hee). Three cheers for Lyn who is great to work with. =o)
