Back to the drawing board

I don't know what is worse. To find a farm finally, that you really love. Or to see that farm go to another buyer who can afford to outbid you.

The words "back to the drawing board" are becoming a regular part of my vocabulary. It is increasingly frustrating that the properties we like tend to go for slightly more than we can afford.

Do we adjust our expectations? Do we lower our wish list? Or do we keep waiting for the next farm to come along?

I revisited farms we have viewed online before, hoping to find an overlooked gem. Something that we missed somehow, something that had potential and was overlooked.

After 430 listings, there is still nothing.

Tomorrow is a new day.
