No, we haven’t stopped looking for a house. There just hasn’t been anything to look at.
Two weeks were lost to Valborg. All real estate agents sensibly assumed that, since the 1st of May fell on a Thursday, most people would take Friday off and be out of town for the entire 4-day weekend. Therefore no point in having viewings that Sunday. And of course if people are away, they’re unlikely to be bidding on a house, so there were no viewings the weekend before Valborg, either.
This week there was one house for sale in the area we’re interested in. It is built on such a slope that the garden would be unsuitable for anything except sledding or cheese rolling, and you’d need a safety barrier at the bottom of the slope because there’s a road there. We didn’t go to the viewing.
However some promising houses have popped up for next week so there will be more action soon again.
