- Wedding: August 2013
I put my house on the market a couple months ago, because I’m getting married.
It all seemed to go swimmingly – house “sold” in a week, full price offer, set to close in mid June.
I was like, “great!” I’d really been counting on not having a hassle of a second house hanging over me while finalizing wedding plans and stuff like that. Also, I’m walking away with a check (since I’m not buying a new house I will get the equity I had built up) so that money might come in handy for wedding stuff, right? Sounds great!
The buyers had pre-appoved financing. It all looked great. The buyer has a great job in a high-status profession. Should go down without a hitch, right?
First hitch – about a week and a half before closing their financer said that yes, they are approved and will get financing, but they can’t possibly do it for an extra two weeks, just because of paperwork and staffing and stuff.
Second hitch – the people are moving from out of state. They need the house by the original closing date. So we work out a rental agreement for the extra couple weeks.
The week of the new closing, get another call – oh, the financer can’t close this week. Have to wait until next week.
That’s this week, and I just got a call from my realtor that they can’t close this week either! No date yet on closing. Ugh! I have people living in my house and we can’t seem to get this sale completed!
Could I use more stress right before my wedding? Certainly! Bring it on!!!
