Show Me That You Love Me
I saw a really nice apartment yesterday. It was beautiful, in a nice neighborhood, and the building has a lovely lobby with a doorman, and a gorgeous roof deck.
And the asking price was in my price range! I couldn't believe it.
I told the realtor that I want to make an offer.
"Ok," she said. "We have to do this carefully. There are several other offers on the place. I think the owners priced it low on purpose to ignite a feeding frenzy. I say we offer $50,000 above the asking price if we want to be in running for the place."
Oh. My. Goodness.
Are we in Alice in Wonderland here?
No, Alice; we're in Manhattan. It's worse. #
