av8rmike: 10 HOME; 20 SWEET; 30 GOTO 10 (home sweet goto)
[personal profile] av8rmike
After putting in an offer on a house, going back and forth with the seller over crap about closing assistance and his profit margin, the seller has finally decided that he's going to rent the house instead. To a couple who supposedly are going to buy after a year of renting and despite "going through bankruptcy" still managed to put a $5,000 deposit on the place. The realtor and both of my finance guys think something doesn't add up here. I wonder if the couple isn't just friends of the owner to whom he made some kind of promise and the actual marketing of the house was just for show. Also, it supposedly needs a new roof. 9_9

It's a little disappointing, but it also wasn't a place we were really in love with, so not that much is lost in the deal.

Also, had a pretty good birthday yesterday. We went with my dad & stepmother to a barbecue place in Bowie that we'd never been before. For a few different reasons, I doubt we'll be going back there.

Happy birthday! Sorry to see you had to have bad BBQ on it. :(

Nice to see you here on DW. And yes...the story behind the now unavailable house sounds a bit fishy, indeed. Here's what doesn't add up:

...the seller has finally decided that he's going to rent the house[...]To a couple who supposedly are going to buy after a year of renting and despite "going through bankruptcy" still managed to put a $5,000 deposit on the place.

That would be like me saying: "Um, I was going to buy this place but instead I rented it, then I went bankrupt, but I still managed to save $5k while paying my rent but not paying my bills so now I will buy it, but like wait, I'm still renting it...capice?"

Holy crapola.

Hey, he wanted the BBQ, so that's where we went! :) (He had a lovely dinner at an Afghan place the night before....)
