Have you been trying to buy a house in CT or MA and lost out to another buyer? These are our faces after we just found out we were out-bid on a house we tried to buy. He's mad, I'm sad. So yes, multiple offer situations, suck. You put forth your highest and best offer, you anxiously wait to hear a response from the seller's side and the whole time you second guess yourself... "Should we have gone higher? Did we go too high?". There is no way to know until you hear the seller's reply. In our case today, it was a big fat, "Sorry, better luck next time!" So long story short, I know how you feel! It happens to the best of us. I go through it with clients and I've gone through it myself. All we can do is keep trying and eventually we'll all be buying!
