WE WROTE AN OFFER! We wrote a strong offer on a home in a lovely neighborhood with mature trees that backs up to a nature preservation. As we were standing in the family room, someone behind the scenes must've yelled, "CUE THE DEER!", because there she was — a sweet doe coming to greet us. We'll take it!
Emotions were running high again. And again we began talking about what our lives would be like living there. I loved the shed, the garden, and the feel of a lot of property without all the maintenance. Tom loved the addition off the back of the house, a huge great room.
Unfortunately our offer was beat by a stronger cash offer. It's simply the name of the game. In most cases, cash is king. This only means there's something better out there, which is fine by me, because this house was great!
