We’ve now seen three houses – house #1 ranks as “we could live there but has potentially serious problems”, house #2 is partway through renovation and will be magnificent when finished – but we are not the people to finish it. We don’t have the skills to do it justice. House #3 is “unless we find something seriously troublesome or it gets snapped up we’ll probably make an offer”. Now for the difficult part: trying not to fall for the place and staying rational for a second viewing and through any further process, as well as looking at other places in our target zone.
This is – big surprise – consuming lots of mental energy, so writing while it’s continuing is doing so at a crawl. I think I managed all of two paragraphs today. Which is still better than zero, so I’m counting it as a plus and hoping to squeeze more in somewhere.
