Last year about this time we found an awesome country house that we could totally afford and fit our family really well.
Our house didn't sell and the offer expired and then the original house wanted to buy in Nova Scotia was available and we put an offer on that.
Then then she got an unconditional offer and we were HEARTBROKEN for 3 days. That deal fell through but the bloom was off the rose and the owner was suddenly unwilling to show us the inspection report. So we've been looking everywhere, all the while our kids have been getting more entrenched in this community and we'd like to be able to afford to stay right here.
We found the perfect house, again! Three kilometres from our current house.
So once again, our house NEEDS to sell, before they get an unconditional offer.
Send all good thoughts you can spare!
