What our new family member gave us -5

Naomi, our real estate agent showed us 10 houses, mostly foreclosure, some short sell listed, one regular sale. The regular sale one was in a perfect condition but the price is about the double the amount which we could handle and already pending. We wanted some information which only real estate agent could get for the house which we offered. Our phone rang. It was Naomi. She said we should keep looking the houses. My wife almost shouted what happened on the one we offered. Naomi said we should forget it because there are 61 offers made to the sales agent.

Neither my wife nor myself thought we would be winning the bid against 60 competitions. So, we agreed to keep looking. We spend 2 more days that way. We looked almost 20 houses in 2 days. We both were tired and felt this continues almost forever. The properties were either too expensive or too much damaged, though we had some which we liked. It was only Naomi encouraged us that we will find the one. We were talking about accepting $400 additional rent and keep the rent until we find right place.

It was Friday morning when Naomi called. We planned to meet her in front of candidate property in 2 hours. She told us do not go to the property, come to her office. What happened?
