Tuesday night I was sitting on the couch watching TV, drinking my wine when I received a text from Patrick, our real estate agent at 10:00 p.m. saying “If you’re awake call me.” I instantly knew it was bad news and called him within seconds.
We had been waiting on a certain issue which I assumed had come back poorly but instead the issue still hadn’t been resolved and the buyers just decided to pull out. What?
Of course I was sad, but I had felt like something wasn’t going well because everything was too quiet around the deal and the waiting was killing the process. I barely slept after I heard the news and was up at 4am Facebooking and checking emails. I finally got out of bed and started making the meals for the day at 5am.
I met with Patrick to talk about the deal and felt like he had done everything in his power to keep it together but sometimes these things happen. I decided to make another trip to TJ Maxx to accessorize the house even more and buy a few new plants for the front entry. Stuff gets broken and trashed here on a daily basis so even though I had the house perfect a month ago that doesn’t mean it is perfect today.
As I was unloading the car from my shopping trip a couple drove up in a very nice car and asked if they could see the house. They were a very sweet older couple looking for a house for their son. You know me, of course I let them in. Shhhh, don’t tell Lou!
I showed them around and they were very interested! I was so excited I called Patrick right away to tell him and he said he was getting lots of calls on our house the moment he re-listed it on the MLS.
So as this moment I am feeling really good that maybe there was a reason they pulled out. Maybe it was meant to be? I am going to assume everything will work itself out and I know Patrick will do everything in his power to make this happen for us.
The downside? I really am not looking forward to keeping the house clean constantly but maybe it will sell in a few days like last time and maybe this time for cash. So keep praying for us and keeping your fingers crossed.
