I was taught the Golden Rule when I was very young and it has served me well. But how does that apply to a seller in 22302 in the City of Alexandria when you’re a home buyer scraping together $1,095,000? It doesn’t mean that you have to buy 3-bedroom home when you need one more bedroom. It doesn’t mean that you need to buy a house in Triangle when you want a home in 22302. But it does mean that:

We never would consider putting offers on more than one property at the same time. (Assuming the buyer client can only afford to buy one property.)
