Day 15: Assumptions

December 5, 2011

Never make assumptions. That’s the lesson I learned today. Since Friday, I’ve been waiting to find out whether the sellers will agree to my post-inspection terms. I assumed their ‘taking the weekend’ was a good sign, but it appears they must not want to sell too badly.

Get this. They’ll pay for the whole roof repair in March if I wait to close until then. Otherwise, they’ll only pay for half now. Any guesses as to why for this odd line of reasoning?

I sure do love that little house, but maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. Despite the disappointment, my little voice of economic reason is in full force today. And the temptation to give in to the emotional attachment is practically non-existent.

I suppose the house was simply a short-lived fling. But that would be making an assumption that this is the end, that I’m still homeless. I hope I’m wrong again.

    Hey Kara,
    If their purchase fell through, they probably want to stay int he house longer until they sort out a new purchase. If they settle now they wil have to find interim accommodation, which would cost them the difference no doubt.

    Hang in there…
