So you know I'm selling my house, which closes April 16th and so far I haven't found a house I want to buy so I'm going to have to store my stuff which is a money drain and I'm stressed about that. So I find the "perfect" home.

What a dilema. My goodness, can't believe so many people would have cash on hand to buy a house outright like that. What does your bank say, can they come up with a good option for you , are there like "promissary notes" or something perhaps? I don't live stateside so have no clue what the situation is there now.... but I hope for you sincerely that you find something you like . Let us know about the 2 you today.... (()) sigh

I had the opposite problem when I found my dream house.

Oh say, can you see?

Thanks for asking Gaye. The market here is crazy! There have been several houses I was interested in but the first day they come on the market they get cash offers for the full price! It's driving me nuts! I can't even imagine what people who are getting a financed mortgage are doing! Oh and these houses are way higher than the comps for the area so even if I wanted one of these houses I will not pay way over fair market price! That would be crazy! So I'm still looking almost every day while I sit and wait for my buyer to decide what she wants me to fix from the home inspection last Friday. Sigh.... this whole thing isn't fun!
