Until I buy a house and probably a couple of years thereafter this blog will most likely feature nothing but house stories because houses and cupcakes seem to be my current obsession.
Â I made another offer on a house on Tuesday. It’s 2 story and tudor style with hardwood floors in the living room and kitchen and new carpet in the remaining rooms. It isn’t exactly what I was looking for, but it is exactly what I need. It’s about 1800 square feet so it’s not too big and not too small. It has a nice backyard and behind the backyard it has a large greenbelt so you can go out there and set up a tent for camping or bury bodies if you happen to go on a killing spree.
So yesterday I am waiting and hoping and praying that these house sellers will accept my offer and that in a matter of days I will be living in a place all my own. Every time my phone rings I think it might be my sister calling me to tell me that they accepted my offer or at least countered with a decent offer. Nothing. They didn’t call. My sister finally called and said, “I don’t know why she hasn’t called me back.”
So I go online to look at the pictures of the house so I can dream of what color I am going to paint hte living room and whether or not I should put wallpaper in the half bath downstairs or if I should paint it.Â I look in my online portfolio of possible house options and I don’t see my house! What? It was just there and now it is gone. I email my sister and tell her what is up. She calls me back later to tell me the house is off the market and that the agent still hasn’t called her back. Ugh. What does this mean? Does it mean that the seller suddenly decided not to sell it? Did he sell it to someone else? It doesn’t make sense that the two houses that I wanted are sold as soon as I make an offer on them.
So here I am obsessing this morning and wondering if maybe they are planning to accept my offer and that is why they took it off the market, or if they already sold it and so I am back to the hunt. It’s a tiring and vexing game considering that I want nothing more than to be in my own place and back in my old routine with my spotless bathroom and washer and dryer. Going to the laundry mat sucks majorly.
I’ll obviously keep you posted on what happens and if I hear anything today.
Love and Eggrolls!
