So, the owners of the last house now aren't sure they want to sell. They haven't given me the courtesy of telling me for certain, and the house is still listed, but it's more than 24 hours past when they were going to decide so... I guess the hunt is still on.
I appreciate that I'm getting a lot of sympathy from friends and acquaintances, and at the same time I find it irksome to hear that the market is crazy right now. I guess I can't think of a good way to offer sympathy, and the bottom line is I just have to deal with the market that I'm in, or get out of the market. Phooey. No wonder people went a little crazy during the boom time.
