bummer-nbr

Dh and I put an offer on a cute little house yesterday. It had so much going for it. Great location, half acre of land all flat (big plus in Pittsburgh), school district we want. We offered asking price. They took another offer, not even a bidding war. I haz a sad. I've got to stop "putting the Christmas tree"in houses I like. I get too attached and sad when we don't get them.

    Awwww. Bummer! Hint: I deal with sellers all the time and its amazing how sentimental some are- especially cat ppl. You can always try including a "love letter." these only work for owner occupied homes. I've seen cat ppl pick a lower offer simply because the buyers had a cat too. For real. It's super cheesy but you never know when it will work!

    I'm sorry. I have that problem too, Christmas tree. We just found our perfect house in Idaho.. 4 bed 2 bath home but we are sure it'll be gone come the time we can get anything. I feel your sadness. I'm sure this just means that their is a better house out there for you. I know it's frustrating but it'll work out.

    My dad always told me, "never fall in love with a house!"

    That being said, I totally fell in love and had to have the house we are currently in! :)

    I'm so sorry.  That happened to us several times.  We were so discouraged that we quit looking for awhile.  Then out of the blue we found a house that we both love more than the others.  Don't give up you will find another house that you love.

    That sucks! Hopefully a better one will come along soon!

    :( that's tough. Buying and selling a house is such an emotional process. I'm so curious what area you're looking.

    Boo. I'm sorry! We had a house pulled out from under us too - I had signed the papers, we had a verbal contract, and we're just waiting on DH to sign since he was at work and the jerks pulled out and gave it to somebody else. BUT, we ended up in a house that we like even better. Hopefully it will work out for you soon!

    I am so sorry- I know the feeling. We put offers on two houses before the one we are in now. I was heartbroken after we didn't get the first one. Now I am so thankful because I LOVE our new home.

    Home buying is sort of like dating. If it doesn't work out it is because something better is around the corner. :)
