And With Less Than An Hour To Go....

Less than an hour before the realtor who SWORE his client was serious and motivated was due to show our house on a federal holiday, he TEXTED to cancel because that's so professional when you've interrupted someone's three-day weekend. Guess there was an emergency barbecue or something.  And the best part?  Same real estate company that we don't think actually showed the house on Sunday.

We had a family, mom/dad/kid, grandparents (2) and their realtor, all 6 of them, traipsing through our house just after the new year 2 years ago. They LOVED the house. Spent a lot of time looking here and there, went up into the attic, spent time in the cellar and the yard, all the while talking about what they could do to make it their own. Asked me about the new windows and doors, the heating bills, the age of the furnace and appliances, and if we were leaving the washer/dryer. Said we had a lovely decorated home and they were very interested. They left and we never heard from them again. What I found out from our realtor is that they were getting married in October, and didn't have the money to buy not only our house, but any house. They were gadfly looking about at every home in the surrounding towns for their fantasy of home buying. Why were they not vetted before shopping? When the listing ran out we didn't relist but we are hopeful that next year perhaps we can sell it. Its been a bad market all around.
