The ones that got away…resumé

As the body count mounts

Number One, nearly got to exchange before “minor” (or not so minor) structural problems revealed.

Number Two, absolutely delightful, but we dragged our heels because of perceived flood issues – and went for Number One instead (not the safe option we thought) and when we revisited it to make an offer it had gone.

Number Three, more prevarication, during which it “sold” (actually not convinced that I can survive a location more than 10 kms from the nearest source of fresh coffee).

Number Four….more prevarication (or “research” as I call it) under offer….just when we were about to make a move.

Number Five (well, sort of). We never got as far as viewing – estate agents phoned to say an offer had been made, which had been accepted, but we could keep our appointment and consider making a counter-offer. Nice to know high ethical standards live on…..

Ian now jokes that I could hire myself out to frustrated sellers. As soon as I start to show an interest, the house goes under offer…..a prediction that is proving uncannily plausible as a possible No 6 apparently now also has an offer pending.
