game over

That’s it, then.

The CMHC will not insure, so no lender will lend. We are unable – because of a technicality – to buy the condo we’ve both fallen in love with; the place so perfect for us that every other available unit looks like garbage in comparison.

I know this isn’t uncommon and it’s happened to other people and everything will be fine and we’ll find something eventually – but none of that matters to me at the moment. I am kind of heartbroken, and the thought of starting the hunt again makes me sick to my stomach.

I am very sad.

  1. From the girl who went through buying not one, not two, but THREE places last month in the process of finding our place – I definitely know how you feel.

    Home buying is super stressful and all encompassing. Know that you are avoiding a major problem for yourself, down the road you just don’t need possibilities selling hanging over your head!

    Today: be sad. Tomorrow: shopping!


  2. Yeah, I’m not superstitious, but I had the WORST service at work tonight (for no reason) then afterwards my wife phoned in tears to tell me that a friend of hers had died suddenly, and then on the way out I broke my favourite sunglasses!! So glad the day’s over.

    The CMHC will not insure for a reason, you will be glad to avoid the money pit that is probably going to be that building, and there are lots of other properties out there, so just take a break and start looking again the new year!

    Good luck :)
