First a recap:
Friday 7:35: View listing of home. First “I think this might be it” moment.
Friday 10:20am: Book showing for saturday.
Saturday 11:15 am: Liz visits house while Eric goes to Gophers game.
Saturday 12:45pm: Liz calls Eric says he should come look at the house after the game. Repeats “I think this it”-like comments.
Satuday 2:20pm: Eric walks around house, talks about woodwork. Pretends to look investigative-ly at the furnace and soffits. Loves the house.
Saturday 2:45pm: Decide to put an aggresive offer on under-priced house. $10,000 above asking price.
Sunday: Realtor submits offer, finds out offers will be sent to seller Monday morning.
Monday 7:30a.m – 6:30pm: Check email on average of six times on the hour.
Monday 6:35pm: Paige calls. Liz sighs. We were first this morning but then someone blew our bid out of the water. Back to square one.
Its like we went on a first and second date and it went AWEsome. And so we proposed. We called friends and family. She took a day to think about it and in the meantime some other guy, probably European, came in and dropped a 1 carat diamond and we were left in a Stevens Square apartment with the heater broken.
I’m being dramatic. But it is crazy how fast such big decisions happen in this house-buying market. We’re bummed but not crushed. Advice to self: Don’t get to second base with a house that hasn’t said “I do”.
