The sale of our house is supposed to close today. There’s been some last-minute drama — because really, what better time? 😛 — and so it might not go through. Basically the buyers want to request additional repairs here on the 1-yard line, and although there are provisions in the contract to prevent such a thing, the whole deal could still go south. Cross your fingers.
Hey, it worked already! As I was typing, the buyers counter-counteroffered to settle the discrepancy in the repair agreement for five Benjamins, which we’ll accept. Apparently there were actually a couple of requested repairs that went undone after all. As we suspected, it’s too late for them to add new repairs, though.
One single thank to our real estate agent, Linda Boucher, who did the absolute minimum for us once she got us under an airtight contract. Thank you for your adequacy! I’ll be telling all of my friends.
I’ve got a lot of good memories in that house. The best years of my life, so far. But I know I’ve got lots more good memories ahead of me too. It’s amazing how different the house sounds with no furniture in it.
So this also means no BryceLand Wild Plum Festival this year. It’s just as well; we still have a bunch of jam from last year. We just don’t go through it very fast.
