House hunting saga...

It has been a manic in our neck of the woods lately. House hunting has been a daunting task - just struggling to find a house that ticks all the boxes. Viewed quite a numbers but only interested with at least two of them so we made an offer to one but turned our offer down until the second viewing with our architect friend who viewed with us and found out that the house is falling apart - thanked God or would have otherwise offered more. Yes, it was so disappointing to know but the safety of the family are our top priority. The view of that location was awesome but the asking price is remarkably too much. Apparently, the only way to profit with that buy is to knock the current house and build two which again will cost more therefore the asking price has to drop-down because legally, they are only selling a plot but they (owner) don't understand that (or they just refuse to). Anyway, we felt cold on that one in the end and didn't bother anymore so we viewed more houses and offered to another one near the kids school which we practically think is the best location. I fell in love with this house straight after the first viewing - its truly a character house. Unfortunately, they turned our first offer and so we offerred a bit more and more until to our last offer with a caption 'take it or leave it' but have not heard from them for two weeks and then all of a sudden saw some photos up with these house in a daily paper (they held us for a bit longer in case someone will come along to offer either more or less before they'll respond to us) which we thought is unreasonable so we withdrawn because we felt used. So the house-hunting is still on! We believed that the right house will always come at a right price and in the right time. Lucky, we have our good friends who offered their place to us to let while we are still looking for a new home! We literally have two weeks to pack everything and move from our current place but with all my pending course work don't think it's possible! I'm desperately calling all the superheros right now for some help!!! 😬😏
The very first house we viewed but didn't like. 

The first one we offered but luckily turned us down. Lovely sea view, best location but house itself are unsafed - literally need to re-structure, rebuild or remodel! 

This one has a very interesting feature but listed as conservation therefore can't be change. If it's a little bigger it would have been ideal but we just couldn't think  of anyways to make the upstair bigger or how to build a master ensuite. In short the downstair's living are fine but upstair's one is quite small for a family of five. Again, love the location and it has a very unique garden but not for us. 

This one is really too small and too far out. Cute but not for us 😊. 

We just have to wait for the perfect house!!!
