Going, Going, Almost Gone...

Castle Meesh is almost ready to be re-named.

The buyer had the house inspected, and the inspector came up with lots of issues. So, the buyer asked for $6,000 to go toward repairs -- that's in addition to the $4,500 he wants toward closing costs. I suggested $3,000.

Today, he agreed to my counter-offer, but apparently the funds actually are going to his realtor (a bonus) instead. I signed more paperwork and faxed it back.

Now, my realtor will find out if they want to buy my refrigerator and washer-dryer. Actually, they can HAVE that dryer: it's crap.

Here's hoping that the next steps go just as smoothly...

Real estate is so much fun. This is why we get mortgages in lumps of 30 years. By that time, we forget what a pain in the ass buying/selling a house is.

Mazel Tov on the sale. I say we have a big party in your empty house after we fill the POD. I'll bring the inflatable pool and the Jell-O (tm). Right...like the buyer would notice the stray splash of raspberry on a wall or two. ;)

I'm all for that! Add some DP and we'll be in business.

We'll need that pool to cool us all off!
