After spending last week talking to different contractors, numerous calls with our Realtor, and a few sleepless nights, we decided we STILL wanted to buy the house despite its flaws. If you're just joining the house hunting story now, the house had a ceiling that was coming down and a sagging floor that needed to be pushed up...among other things. We we not paying for a "fixer-upper" but felt comfortable with the new agreement we had made with the sellers post-inspection.
My hubby made, what we thought was, the call to our agent and learned that
the sellers decided to take the house off the market.
All of that drama for nothing.
Never mind that I had already pictured our life, our future there.
If you are REALLY paying attention you might be thinking to yourself, "Hey, isn't this the second house they have tried to buy that has taken itself off the market?" Yes. You are right.
So the hunt continues and I'm O.K. with that. I had told God (we're tight like that) that if he didn't want us to have the house that he would have to take it away from me because I reeeeeeeeaaaaaallly wanted it.
We are going to look at this one sometime this week.
Do you have a crazy, roller coaster house hunting story to share? Do tell!
**Update: the lovely sellers took their house off the market for 24 hours and then listed it again at the same price with the same agent. If you are local and looking for a house with a sagging foundation and ceilings falling down--go check it out!**
