so, because i know you're pretty much desperate for an update, no, we're still not owners of a new home.
but we did bid on one a couple of weeks ago that i feel kind of good about.

i mean, the seller considered our offer laughable. she came down a mere $500 from her listing price.

to which we countered, and i wrote a very respectful "you're absolutely nutsoid if you think we're going to pay you that much for your house. we're smarter than that."

to which she replied "sure, i'll come down a few Gs for you."
unfortunately, still not enough for us.

now, before you decide that we're off our rockers and that our expectations are too high, i will say that we carefully considered the comps (that's "comparables" for those of you lucky enough to not be going through this process right now) before evaluating the value of this home. it hasn't been updated in all of its 28 years of existence (read: total. 80s.) and homes in that kind of . . . distress . . . are going for a certain price. the price we asked. most of them in this particular hood go for even less.

even though we didn't get it the first time around, she's pretty fresh on the market, so she'll see the light soon enough.

then we'll get it, and i swear by all that is holy, i will be interviewing photogs to immortalize our home.
okay, maybe not, but it's that good. and a girl can dream.
