- Wedding: September 2009
I just needed a quick vent, because I am SO over this whole selling/buying a house process! We are moving from CO to NJ… so it’s a quite a distance. First of all, the people who are buying our house requested we be out FAST; we close the day after Thanksgiving, which means my DH will be driving across the country over the holiday and my two year old and I will be spending it without him 🙁 We’ll be renting for a month, and our goal was to be in a new house before Christmas and the baby comes… and well, people are just A-holes. We put an offer on a house with a close date of 12-19 and the couple’s agent responded “well, they don’t have a place to live lined up if they aren’t here, so the soonest they could close is 1/30. We would have understood if it was just wanting to spend one last Christmas in their current home… an early Jan. close date, but really? that’s like 2.5 months out!? You can’t put your home up for sale and then be like, well, we didn’t think about where we’d live if we actually sold it. Then there’s the people buying our house… and they seem to think they already own the place. First they were too cheap to pay an inspector, so they opted to “do the inspection themselves” which not knowing anything about what an inspector looks for, was just an excuse for them to kick us out of our house for three hours while they walked around with their starbucks messing with our thermostat and plotting where to put their furniture. It’s been TEN degrees outside here in CO for the past week, and they watched me march my 33-week pregnant butt across an icy pavement with our freezing two year old and no place to go out of the house that day without so much as a smile or a wave to me. Then they have the nerve to ask us to leave again on Sunday so they can bring their three kids over to “get familiar with the new home.” Heck to the No people! This is my last weekend in what was supposed to be our forever home, which I’m not even close to excited about selling at all, and I’m so fed up with this crap 🙁 Vent over.
