So, do you want the good news?

Or the bad news? 

The bad news is that, as suspected, our offer for the house we saw at the weekend was turned down.  It will be interesting to see what it goes for as I'm sure it will be way, way, way over the asking price.

The good, possibly, news  is that this very afternoon the house we'd offered on previously came back on the market. Apparently because the previous buyers had had some problems with raising the financing and not some structural problem.

And so we're going to make a renewed offer tomorrow morning.  And I am very, very scared because this one needs a ton of work doing to it and I had just been lazily thinking how nice it would be to move into a house that didn't need any work doing to it at all.

So, I will keep you posted.  It could be that I will be asking you all for lots of interior design advice over the next few months.

When we bought our house the housing market here was crazy. We made five different offers, all at full asking price, and each withing 24 hours of the house being on the market. We lost to other people each time. A feeding frenzy. One time we lost just by the flip of a coin--the seller couldn't decide between our offer and an identical one.

It's rather a miracle that we finally were able to purchase a house. Crazy.
