Quick Update

Sorry kiddies... I've got an enormous amount of crap do get done today. Made worse by the fact that I haven't been able to concentrate much lately with all the house stuff going on!

But I know you guys have been crossing your fingers and toes for me and I really appreciate the support! So I thought it would be rude of me to just abandon you all for the day without a quick update on the housing situation.

We received the seller's counter offer last night. It basically boils down to this... He doesn't want to sell that badly. If we buy this house it will basically be on his terms. Whether or not those terms are acceptable is a matter of hot debate over in ChezGhetto.

So there you have it. An update but no decision. And of course, more waiting.

I think I must have done something really awful in a past life! Maybe I was one of those habitually late people that always kept everyone waiting? That would seem fitting wouldn't it?

Now back to the grindstone for me! Y'all have an awesome day!

Typical! I don't know if you remember all the hassle John went through when buying his place. Here is the short version. Basically the seller thought they could get a better offer and they waited so long John's original offer expired. By that time the appraisal came in on the house and it wasn't worth as much as they had hoped. So John made a new offer, significantly lower than his original one, and they accepted it.

LOL - I do remember that! Thanks for reminding me though - sometimes it's nice to know other people have gone through this before!

The only thing worse than buying a house when you really need one is selling a house when you have already bought another one. My lawyer vowed to quit the profession after my last closing. (CT requires a lawyer for closings). Just another blog junkie here.
