14 offers

This sweet little house will soon be somebody's new home, but it won't be our new home. For the record, we aren't actively house hunting, but we saw this cutie go on the market this past weekend, and we thought it might be fun to check it out--just like the old days back in Charlotte. It turns out that we weren't the only ones interested in this little property. The owners received 14 offers (14!) in the three days since it went on the market. It kind of made Alex and me laugh (in a laughing at ourselves kind of way) because our house in Charlotte was on the market for nearly two years. And I don't think 14 people even looked at it...ever...period.

Truth be told; however, this house didn't really speak to me. It's the perfect size on a great street with neighbors we already know and a playful back yard, but it was missing a certain je ne sais quoi--that something that I can't explain, but know it when I know it. There aren't any interior shots, by the way, because we weren't the only ones looking at the house while we were looking at the house. Our three children were running wild through the rooms dodging two realtors, another couple scoping out the place and the parents of one half of the couple. It felt like a regular open house, which also made Alex and me laugh since no one ever showed at our open houses. Good work, 3813 Avenue H!
