So, it seems the sellers of the house we have a contract on are not in agreement to moving. The wife we have heard does not want to move and is mad they are selling the house. It has been on the market for over a year–plenty of time for a normal person to come to terms with moving. At the inspection they both stayed in the house the ENTIRE time and the wife kept yelling at the husband to follow us around so we don’t touch anything and don’t touch her antiques (as if). She was so rude while we were there and acted like a spoiled 16 year old having a fit rather than a grown woman. It was embarrassing on her part and super annoying for me to experience.
Anyway- we got back a lengthy inspection report that included pool items and pest report (squirrels in the attic). Nothing major but it was a lot of little things. Out of all this we decided to only ask for like 5 things, have 2 appliances looked at, have the pool heater looked at and make some minor repairs to like 2 sprinkler heads. We sent the amendment on Friday last week. Wednesday were told that the Sellers were going to agree to everything we asked for. After we didn’t get the signed amendment back for a day and a half our agent called and tore into the other agent. Here is the latest deal:
I just heard from the listing agent after I placed a really strong call to his office. He called the Sellers to see where the amendment was and overheard a heated, loud argument going on between the wife and her husband. She did not want to sign the amendment because she feels she sold the house for less than what she wanted. The agent has asked them to “x” out the whole amendment and say that the house is going to be sold “as is”. The agent, [x] is giving us a letter where he is agreeing to do all the repairs you requested to get the house sold.
Seriously, could she be more uncooperative? a) your house is only worth what the market will bear. Sorry to break it to you but yours was overpriced, but we gave you a more than fair offer and b) you TOOK it. get over yourself and get with the program.
Husband is not even confident that she will come to the closing and behave herself. But it’s Texas so aren’t we allowed to just shoot people that annoy us?
For fun, here is a photo of a creepy doll Mrs. Seller had out in one of the bedrooms–the one that wasn’t full of creepy dolls:Creepy, right? It’s like that Seinfeld episode.
All I can say is thank goodness the other agent has half a brain and knows these people are insane. We’ll see where that gets us.
