House Hunting: Robert E Lee Lane

I'm going to try to not get upset while I'm writing this, but y'all, this was a hard one.

We got ~*the feeling*~!!! The this is our home, I wanna have babies here, bury me in the backyard because I'm never leaving, I'll murder someone if they live here instead of me, desperate to move in tomorrow, gotta have it kind of feeling! The sensation we've been waiting to have since we started the home search finally struck us.

This amazing mid-80s, but mid-centry feeling, high ceiling, sunset facing magical wonder at 1425 Robert E Lee Lane in Brentwood is all that and a bag of chips.

While touring the house I was basically was having an out of body / blackout experience because I was so excited that I couldn't process anything. Compound the fact that this was our dream home with the fact that the house had been on the market for 3 hours by the time we saw it and it was literally crawling with other buyers. All I wanted was for them to get out of my house. Oh, and let's not forget that this house was listed for about $15k above our max budget, and still about $100k below market value. Talk about stressful!!

Suffice to say that by the time we had put in our offer, the listing agent had already communicated to our agent that there had been several offers well over asking price, alluding that some of them had be $50-60k over. Oh well, I guess we're out, was the only way to look at it. And so we're moving on.

Can you even get ~*the feeling*~ about more than one house?!
