This morning our realtor called to say that the first offer people had decided to firm up their offer, even though they have not yet sold their house. This means that our offer is null and void - bummer!
We are both pretty depressed about the whole thing as we leave Canada on Sunday, so the chances of us finding another property before we leave and getting the offer in place etc is pretty low.
Both us and our relator immediately hit MLS again and found a few more properties, some of which we viewed this afternoon.
We saw 5 properties, none of which were what we really wanted. One was a spectacular property on a hill with great views but it was not completed and the builder was selling pretty much as it was so it would cost a small fortune to compete as the whole basment needed completing, as did the decking, groundwork, driveway etc etc.
We have a few more to see tomorrow, but not holding out much hope!
