I know I said I wouldn't be online much but I had this crazy thing happen that I thought I would share with ya'll in my home selling saga. A few friends have heard this story already, but here it goes-
Last time I mentioned that I showed my house when it wasn't even on the market. Hubby and I took a day trip to Macon, GA on Saturday and I had my phone on me but it wasn't ringing or anything. However when we got home, I had about a zillion messages from the realtor.
First it was - "Keri they want to take another look."
Then it was "Keri, Keri they really really want to take another look."
Then it was "Keri I'm writing an offer right now call me back!"
Then it was "Keri, Keri, I'm really, really writing an offer now call me back!!!"
Needless to say things are moving really quickly- they wrote a contract on the house, to close in 30 days, and then wanted to do the house inspection yesterday, the day after we signed the contract!
Anywho, I had to take my dogs out of the house and drive around so they could look around, I was told it was going to take an hour. I came back 1 hr and 15 mins later and they were still wandering around my home.
My home smelled like smoke because the potential buyer is a smoker and I think he smoked in my home! THEN as I walk in to see when they are done, I see the buyer holding a beer - in my home - at 4pm in the afternoon(!!!). And not just any beer, but a 40! How declasse is that? I was rather offended and was tempted to tell him to take it outside.
This is a home inspection, not a party house,
and I'm trying to trust these people I've never met by leaving my house open to them and here he has just been wandering around my house, with a beer at 4 in the
afternoon and throwing his cigarette butts all over my yard when I'm
not even there. What disrespect, honestly. I'm seriously
reconsidering selling my home to him! And by the way, what kind of
person goes and buys beer to bring to a HOME INSPECTION? It takes all kinds of crazy, huh?
So - what kinds of crazy things have you had happen to you when you're selling a house?
And if you're here just for the yarn, guess what - COTTONEASE!
