Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

!@#@###!?&&?!!!

So, we drove out to Minnetonka this morning to write up the purchase agreement for house #2 (the Minneapolis house). Everything went well except that I forgot my cellphone at home (I don't perform optimally at that hour of the morning). Placing another offer is a combination of exciting and scary.

Then I got an email message from our agent letting us know that the seller's agent had told her that there is the potential for another offer today. Someone else just had a third showing of the house and might write up an offer today.

At this point we can't do much other than wait. While we like the house we aren't really interested in getting into a bidding war for it.

On a brighter note: They found the guy responsible for Comic Sans.

No Joy

We didn't get the house.

We made our offer, the seller's made a counter-offer, we made a counter offer, another offer showed up, the seller decided they liked that one better and rejected our offer at that point.

It seems likely that the other offer was for more than we were willing to pay for the house. Unfortunately that doesn't help much.
