    This breaks my heart. This is the 5th listing in Kansas that my husband and I all but begged for only to be told it was no longer available as it was “just sold”…chased this one from June till Christmas😢 I jokingly said well I guess they didn’t like my husband…My husband said they didn’t like his husband ie: me🤗 we both are considering asking the Wizard lol

    I’m right there with you……I tried for this house in October, but it was under contract, then it fell through and ended up going to auction. I bid on it and was the only bidder for two weeks, but the last day a lot of people started bidding. Sadly, no one got it as the reserve wasn’t matched.
    I contacted the realtor today and asked if the owner would con spider selling again, only to find out it’s under contract again. I guess they didn’t like me or my husband either, lol.
