SOLD!

A guy came to look at the house today. He walked though rather hurriedly saying things like, "Yes, yes, good, nice. . ." I finish showing him the backyard and he asks me if we're firm on the price. I tell him that we are. He says ok and that he wants to give me a deposit. I say, "ok!" He leaves to go to a meeting and tells me he'll be back before 3pm with the check.
While he's gone I call the realtor of a couple who was supposed to come look at the house for the third time at 3:45 (which is why Mike was bringing me the check before 3pm). I tell Realtor Bob what's going on and that if his clients want to give us more money, we'll sell it to them (aren't I shiesty). He says he'll let them know & I don't here anything from them.
Mike brings me the check & we sign some papers (we're opening escrow tomorrow). Here's the pisser: Realtor Bob's clients came to look at the house at 3:45, only to find out that Bob didn't tell them about my phone call until just before they came, or that they could have offered us more $$.
In conclusion:

  • Bob's a jackass who screwed his clients out of getting our house & us out of getting more dinero.
  • We've sold our house, without even advertising it in the paper - WHOO-HOO!
  • Mike and his family want a 2 week escrow, so we will probably be out of here by June.

Anyone want to help pack? xoxo
