Tell us your 2016 home-buying horror story

It’s Friday Open Thread time!

Last week, we asked you to tell us your 2016 rental horror story and you obliged. We heard about all manner of challenges to securing that perfect apartment during the year that is about to end.

Now! We want to hear about your home-buying horror story from 2016.

Did you wage a particularly intense bidding war and lose? Was your broker not the sharpest knife in the drawer? Were the prices you encountered so astronomically out of your range that you went ahead and re-upped that 12-month lease?

Be specific with neighborhoods and addresses, if you can be—your fellow home-hunters will appreciate the warning.

And, again, good luck out there. Things could be worse.
