Jinxes and Hitches

Despite the eternal jokes and superstitions about jinxing a ballplayer by talking about something negative he hasn't done or screwing up a test by saying that I know all there is to know on the subject, I'm pretty sure that I don't believe in hexes or jinxes or murphy's law.

With that said, I'd like to make a bold proclamation: I just received an offer on Castle Meesh! A fantastically good one! I signed the papers and returned them to the realtor this afternoon.

Now the fun begins...

Such as, the inspections and discussions about which fixtures stay (like the refrigerator). And just how much in the way of repairs / servicing will the buyer expect. And, really, deciding how much of those expectations would I want to meet. Oh God, and figuring out how to move my stuff to storage by May 15.

Soooo, did I just jinx the offer by posting about it? Or do I already think the offer is too good to be true, and thus the offer was already jinxed and my posting or not posting would have made no difference? Or will the sale go through without a hitch?

So......what's up with the casa offer? Did he make tons of demands? How's it all going? We need an update!

I just received the earnest money check. Now we're waiting for him to set up an inspection, I think.

Ah, the inspection. Fix anything that would be a financing deal stopper. You know, like structural damage, bleeding walls and disembodied corpses walking the staircase. If the deal is fantastic enough, you can afford to give a little on those things.

They want an extra $6,000 toward the repairs. I counter-offered $3,000 yesterday. We'll see...

There are no disembodied corpses walking the staircase... I rid them all with bleach.
Meesh, let us know if there is anything we can do to help.
