So, I’ve been house hunting for many many many months. Put in bids and it goes for way above asking. Just got smoked on a bid for a nice house in Waltham where I offered $10k over asking (already high as the price per square foot is higher than the area) and was told today that the seller is going with a “much” higher offer. I need to be within a commutable area to Boston and I’m pretty much out of options. Inventory has dried up for just about everything in my price range. So, I’m going to REI tomorrow and picking up a nice tent, a space heater, and a camp stove and I’ll hunker down under the Longfellow bridge and make that my new home. No taxes, no maintenance costs, friggen brilliant. If you pass by feel free to come in and check out the place... This is flippen ridiculous.
