Buyer's Market?


I will never claim to be an economist but I have decided the economy is on the up turn. My basis for this decision you may ask, we did NOT find a buyer's market while looking for homes this weekend. Of course I am kidding about the economy, but it was a bit discouraging. We had been working with our realtor finding homes that we would like to visit when we went house hunting this weekend. By the time we got down there on Saturday morning four of the houses we had planned on looking at had sales pending. Two of those houses were serious contenders in our minds. So we continued to look at the ones that were still available and found one we like. By the time we drove home yesterday, our realtor called to say that someone had put an offer on that house, as well. I have to say, I was a bit upset. We really like this house and are prepared to put in an offer but this is not what I wanted at all. What happened to the buyer's market? Well, on an up note, it is a beautiful house. :)

Have you gone to visit Emma's this last week? Cindy is getting so manyyummy products in right now and she has been posting some of those on the blog. She also put the new projects up this weekend while I was gone. Oh yummy, yum, yum. You have GOT TO GO see these projects. The amazing Melissa Phillips has been doing our sketches and this one is just fabulous. Here is my take on the sketch.

Make sure you get over to the Emma's Blog to check out the sketch and what the other artists have done with the sketch.
Hope your week is fabulous and thanks for stopping by!

LOL, sounds like something that would happen to us...lol. As soon as we would find a house, boom, it would be gone. ;) Here is hoping that you will get your house soon! And I do believe you found your mojo, loving that card, my friend!

Sorry you're having trouble...in our area it really is a buyer's market b/c homes are selling for less than what they are worth, but it's not as bad here as in some places...my BIL in Vegas bought a condo a few years ago for like $250,000 and now it's only worth like $120,000! Craziness!!!

Anyway, good luck finding a house!

Hi Lisa, that's too bad that you found some houses you like, and they are already pending. When do you have to move? Is it far from your current house? I hope you find something soon! That would be one less worry for you.

Lisa,

So sorry to hear that the homes you are looking at are be taken so quickly. But I am really glad you have an offer on your home. I was worried you wouldn't be able to sell it quickly.

So you are in my thoughts in the hope you find the perfect house. It's out there just waiting for you, I know it. :)

My next move will be to go to Emma's to check out the goodness! LOVE that place! Wow, I sure hope you guys can get a bid on the house you really want. I guess your story is a good one, that people are at least trying to buy, etc.
