I Won't Back Down

The offer on the house was flatly refused. The owner said he wasn’t interested in negotiating unless we had an offer on our house. So I guess he wants us as his mercy? Sounds like he doesn’t need the money and he thinks his house is worth much more than the market. Still, I can’t shake the feeling that this is our house. I just keep thinking about how it’s been on the market for three months, had no offers except ours, is empty, the owner lives in another state and is a unique enough house to appeal to a very small selection of buyers.

We’re planning ahead. Tonight Steve and I took two carloads of stuff to the storage unit and are going to finish loading up what we’ve packed tomorrow night. Pavel comes on Thursday to start working on the bathroom tile and we’re hoping to have our house ready for a sign in about 7-10 days. Like I stated before, we’ve already had one phone call so we’re spreading the word. Worse case scenario is that the other house goes under contract before ours and we lose it. I know, I know there are other houses, but this is the one I’m willing to work for. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers! I do believe everything happens for a reason so if this one should somehow completely fall through I’m sure there’s a good reason for it.

    Some sellers are unrealistic. But you never know – if you sell yours quickly, then you can make another offer. Good luck!

    WHAT??!? He sounds very dismissive. I already don’t like him and think he’s just being pushy and money-grubbing. 🙂 As trite as it is to say, sometimes things work out the way they should, and if it’s meant to happen, it will. That being said, I will send as much good energy as possible your way. And I do have a statue of St. Joseph, if you need it. If you believe burying a little plastic statue will help. I’m just throwing that out there.
