strike three

We are very happy that our house sold so quickly.  We are even more happy that the buyers are doing a lease back for us and we have the house until the middle of June.  This will give us time to find our new home and let the boys finish out school.

We have not had the best luck finding a new house.  The market is very hot right now, which is great for sellers, not for buyers.

This is the first house we put an offer on.  It was on a half acre lot, on a culdesac in a great neighborhood and it had a pool.  It was my favorite.  The seller's agent didn't communicate there were multiple offers, and it sold for full asking price. 

This is the second house we put an offer on.  It had 4 bedrooms plus a study, on a culdesac, 3 car finished out garage, with a greenbelt and walking trail to it's left.  We offered full price less than 24 hours on the market and the other buyer offered above asking price first. 

The last offer we made was on 2.5 acres, had gorgeous trees, separate workshop, secret garden and additional garage space. We offered full price, only to have the seller raise the price $10,000.  When he countered us, we accepted the counter offer.  He never accepted the offer he made us because he received an offer for $20,000 above asking price. 

We have faith that God has the perfect house in store for us.  This is a difficult process and we are hanging in there!
