It was a busy day yesterday, as we went to the National Home Show in Toronto. Our real estate was kind enough to give us tickets, so we went to get out of the way. There were two viewings on the house, one was a second showing, which resulted in us getting an offer last night.
It was a low ball offer (of course) and due to the fact that the agent's first language is not English, it took us a while to go through it, as the spelling was terrible, and because of that it took us longer to understand everything. Also you name it they wanted it, including things we had excluded in the original sales material about the house.
Also this agent included this requirement:
"The Seller's Agree to keep the Property clean and remove all the Garbage from the house premises."
Now for anyone who knows me, I keep our house spotless. Our agent says our house is one of the cleanest she has ever seen. So I am not sure whether to laugh or be totally offended by that requirement??? I am not sure what garbage they are referring to at this point? Oh well what ever.
One of the things they asked for was the "FRIDGER" which we figured out was the Freezer in the basement, we cancelled that as I want to take that with us. We excluded the Gazebo on the back deck, they asked for that. We excluded all my drapes (they're from England, and I love the drapes/curtains from England), they asked for those. They wanted ALL the mirrors in the house, so had to re write it to say only the bathroom mirrors are included. I mean on and on it went.
So here I am at 3am in the morning, not able to sleep. They have until 9pm Sunday night to respond, whether they do or not remains to be seen at this point. As we only dropped our price by $2,000, as the more money we drop, the less money we have to spend on the new house, and it needs a bit of money spent on it. Plus due to the economy, we have already dropped the price of the house by $35,000 from when we had it on the market last Fall.
Oh the joys of selling a house, the sooner it is over with the better!!!
ALSO JUST A REMINDER IT'S THE START OF A NEW MONTH FOR THE DAILY SAVINGS CLUB, AND YOU WILL BE PUTTING 75 CENTS PER DAY IN YOUR POT.
