    Have you actually bought somewhere or are you waiting for auction to finish?

    THis house was unsold at auction and has an accepted bid on it - but the estate agent is passing our bid on. If no money has exchanged hands and the offer is not ridiculous then maybe, we have bought it.
    We are a bit shell shocked to tell the truth. Two hours with the building society advisor looking at our finances was a bit stretching anyway without actly rashly over semi derelict housing.
