Thank you all for your support I really am so blessed to have so many great friends as you all. John's death has left me feeling that life is precious and that each day should be cherished. I know that being in so much pain as each of us are it is hard to think of this but I truly believe that life is a precious gift that should not be wasted.
The so called "buyer" has officially backed out, or so he has told my Realtor. He has told Becky that he wishes out of the contract and she is sending him Void contract papers in the mail. So I guess that means we are back up on the market for more showings. Maybe this was a sign from God that he was not the right buyer for my home and that I needed to sell it to someone else I don't know. He may change his mind still but I doubt it and I really do not care at this point since Becky has many that are interested in seeing the house and did not wish to look at it while it was "under contract"
I do not think it was unreasonable to ask the buyer to handle his own upkeep on the house and I believe that he was being unreasonable to ask me to fix things that are not even bad in the home. The linoleum in the kitchen has a few cracks in it and he wanted it totally replaced, the door in the bedroom was backward which we reversed. The bathroom one piece of the paneling is not been nailed up, the filters in the heater need replaced which aren't usually replaced by us until fall, the oven light does not work because it has never worked and I will not buy a brand new stove for anyone (well...maybe for our new home but not for a home that I am leaving). The porch is dilapidated the inspector said, so he wants it totally redone, forget that and the back porch needs a rail. Drains for the guttering should go further out (please!!) and the front eves need repainted which is not going to happen.
These are only a few of the small trivial things that the buyer wanted completed before we left here and I think that it was an unreasonable request to even ask us to do this. He was rather rude to Becky telling her that he darn well expected his earnest funds back if we were not willing to go that extra mile to satisfy his requests and she got rather upset with him.
Anyway there is where we stand, so we are back on the market and we will see where we go from here.
By the way, thought you would all like to know that hubby and I got our pre-qualification for a home loan for our new home and we are qualified for 80K. So some good news amidst the bad.
Hoping for a LPN
