I was all set to talk about exercise calories and all that jazz today and then things got all muddled up.
You know, things just are never easy, are they? We were remarking at how smoothly this house closing has been going and as of last week, everything was on track to close by this Friday. We were getting pretty excited about this whole process being finally over after so long and were planning where to go out to dinner to celebrate.
Then we get word today that the buyer’s financing fell through. Today. With the closing this Friday. Why this took so long for that to happen is just a mystery. If the financing wasn’t going to go through, it should have been weeks ago that it was going to happen.
Apparently some issue came up with the buyer’s ex-husband and something he did that got attached to her credit. Now her mortgage broker says that he has another lender that is willing to work with her, but who knows if that will be the case. We have to make a plan B to possibly have the house back on the market again. We are going to give them 10 days to give us concrete proof that they can get the deal done or we are going to have to open up the listing again and accept other offers. We just can’t wait around for this.
I swear, this past year and a half has just been a bit of a nightmare as far as real estate goes. Anyway, we are pretty frustrated about the whole thing, but what are you going to do? I hate those situations where I have absolutely no control over the outcome.
Just gotta take it one day at a time…and breathe.
I am crossing my fingers that this buyer gets the money and we can close sooner rather than waiting for another offer to come in.
