Where the failed sale stands now

Where do we stand now with the house sale?

Still in the middle of nowhere, but not exactly sure where that nowhere is.

We've sat down earlier in the week and talked to our Realtor about our options with the house, this failed sale and the market. He got the go ahead to contact the other Realtor to tell them our feelings about the appraiser's bullcrap required list of repairs. Plus with the info that we would fix all their request problems and are willing to work with them if they need time to secure different financing.

We heard back from the (no longer) buyers and their agent, seems everyone is just as annoyed as us about the bs list. Their agent is going to call the lender to find out WHY exactly this certain appraiser came down so hard on our house, as much of her repairs seemed to be very...discretionary. So maybe they'll be able to appeal the first appraisal and request another one from someone who actually isn't as dumb as rock? Who knows.

Right now I feel like that option has about a snowflakes chance in hell, but hey if Persephone could get out of Hades then maybe this sale can as well. I won't be holding my breath, but I will keep my fingers crossed.


  1. Oh honey, I'm so sorry. But this is good news...they are hooked on your house! I bet they are going to find a way to get it financed.

  2. Thanks Jeannine! We try to think positive that they might find a way to get the house!
