Rejected / by Michelle Linden

Some things really are too good to be true. This house came on the market on Sunday and we had an offer in by 4pm. The house is in a great neighborhood and was very cute inside (but still in need of work), with an unfinished basement and a garage... everything we are looking for, and in our price range. We presented a good offer (significantly more than asking), but were rejected in part because we wanted to get an inspection. Apparently the owners decided that they would rather wait around for an even higher offer, and one that would waive an inspection. The sad thing is... they'll get it. I guess its back to the house hunt for us!
