That's how it is everywhere. We sold our house within 5 hrs of listing, and for $50k above asking price, sight unseen. Unfortunately, the house we were going to buy ended up having stucco issues that the owner basically wasn't willing to acknowledge so we had to walk away. We have found another house, which we like even better, but we're still waiting to work out the details. We have to be out of this house in 2.5 weeks, so things are a bit hectic at the moment. Good luck with the condo search!
