Alison and I made an offer on a house today.  We'll see how it is received...

Update:  The owner summarily dismissed our offer.  Apparently, he expects to get much more than comparable houses in the neighborhood have sold for.  Fortunately, we've already lined up a couple of other interesting properties to look at this week.


  1. It was in Gaithersburg, but it looks like it's not going to happen. The seller was asking $90-100K more than comparable homes in the neighborhood had sold for since October. His agent says he has another offer much closer to his asking price (I'm skeptical, but whatever) and asked if we wanted to bid up. Our agent doesn't think the house will even appraise for that much in this market so we said, "no thanks". It's ok...we have a few townhouses that we're still interested in and one that looks really nice that we're going to go see this weekend (all in Montgomery Village). I'm sure we'll find something great eventually. :)
