Poignant Irrelevance

Thursday, March 08, 2007

Wednesday night: went to look at a house that just went on the market on Monday.
Today, Thursday, 1 day later: someone wrote them an offer to buy the house.
i really liked it.
it was on the market for 3 days.
and then someone else bought it.
stupid.

the search continues.

Tuesday and Wednesday morning i managed to get up and run before work.
Today i lifted weights.
Tomorrow, i'm going to try to get up again.
Saturday: long run?

  • interesting...since in boston there are so many vacancies right now. i think the phrase is a "buyer's market."

    i do remember though in northern virginia in early 2004 my friends had the same problem. you have on time to even think or else someone will pick up the property. SO STRESSFUL.

    good luck!

  • Hey Brent!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog.

    You're from MN? I grew up north of St. Paul. I'm familiar with the area in which you're house hunting. Best of luck finding "the place!" Sorry this one didn't work out.

    Happy running,
    Meghan

  • I want you to buy this house. I'll come visit you.

  • The last thing you want is Marla hanging around at your house. My neighbor's house is for sale and I think THAT'S the one you should buy. It's...almost as nice. HA

  • We went through the SAME thing. A house would go on the market on Monday and would be sold before we could even look at it on our usual Wed night hunt with our realtor. It was so frustrating. We even showed up at an Open House at the same time as another friend and you could tell it was a competition! She did end up buying it less than an hour into the Open House. There are certainly some areas where it's still a seller's market!

    Good luck! You'll find the right one!
