I didn't end up getting to put the offer on the house Monday because of some misinformation about the house. After that was straightened out, I put the offer on it Tuesday, the next day. I waited all that day and got a call from my Realtor on Wednesday with some bad news. The lady selling the house changed her mind, deciding not to sell her house.
I was so stunned I really didn't know what to say. Guess I've been in sort of a daze the last couple of days from this because I'm so shocked.
I'm just really confused by this whole thing and it's pretty much dampened my spirits about house hunting. I'm afraid to find another great house and get my hopes up.
Don't get me wrong, I'm still looking for a house. I'm just venting here. I am still checking the MLS listings each morning that my Realtor sends me. Maybe I'm not suppose to have that house and there's a better one out there? Maybe something will become available closer to the beach.
When I bought my last house, I looked at 20 houses in 1 day and ended up picking the very first one I looked at. Put offer in, got house, easy as that. They say no pregnancy is alike, I guess no house purchase is alike either! I think I'm learning more the 2nd time around than I did the first time, since it seemed my first home just fell into my hands. I also overlooked some things when purchasing my first home that I don't want to overlook this time, so I have been trying to be more cautious.
Well, I'm just going to try to keep my head up and trust it's all going to work out. I also have been trying to enjoy the town and get out doing stuff more instead of focusing on house hunting so hard.
I will continue to keep updates posted on this wild and crazy journey, so stay tuned! :)
