Real Estate

We made an offer on that house, and the seller made a counter-offer, coming down maybe $1000.00. We countered that with the amount we had agreed beforehand we would not go above. The seller balked, and we walked. Slight disappointment, but we’ll wait for something suitable at a price we’re willing to pay. We’re in a strong position with no need to sell, and reasonably content in our current abode. Actually, there are four or five suitable houses in acceptable neighborhoods with asking prices at or below what we offered for that grander brick house we’re not getting.

Back view of the house we didn't get.  Note the attached two-car garage, screen sunroom off the den.  Very grand, by our standards.
