Saw a couple of houses today.
Looking at buying our first home and have been looking for about 4-6 months in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. (Covid has impacted our house searching somewhat- I am back to casual but still earning good money)
In the last 3 or 4 weeks in particular, houses that we have seen at say 10am inspection times have had offers on them the same night!!!
What the hell is going on? Do people have a fear of missing out at the moment….
Yes, we really want to buy a house but some of these properties have legit been unbelievably bad and in need of heaps of work.
I am not trying to be picky but an example I will give you.
"Another buyer walked in the same time looking at a property. In there for the same amount of time as myself, didn't check anything just eyed it down, we both happened to walk out the same time and he said to the agent he was really keen and wanted to put an offer in asap".
I was perplexed. Each to their own I get but wtf is happening!!!
I am very easily losing motivation at the moment.
