The condo, again

June 28th, 2012 at 01:13 pm

I got word from my realtor that the reluctant seller asked her realtor if I was still interested in the condo. I said yes, but explained that I had just signed a new lease (which actually hasn't gone into effect yet). My landlord will let me out of the lease, though,if I vacate by Aug.1, so time is of the essence.

Today I learn that the seller is in the hospital and "needs a few days."

I could just pull my hair out. A few days will mean having to break a new lease. My landlord is trying to work with me, but this lady is making it impossible.

I'm thinking about just walking away. I don't have to move this summer. I had already started thinking about the advantages of waiting. There will be other condos.

Meanwhile, I have a headache that will NOT go away.

Adding to the stress, work is crazy now with the fiscal year ending. That means we are trying to bring in as many gifts as possible in order to meet our fundraising goal. I made a big snafu when I entered a batch that put triple entries on each record. Jeesh. If I don't get fired this week, I guess I'm fireproof!

In a remarkable stoke of good luck, I found a $10 bill on my lunchtime walk yesterday!

    I think I'd walk away. Who needs all that stress and drama. There will be other condos.

    Ten bucks! Excellent. I think the A/C gives me a headache--especially when I'm going in and out of it.

    It is not the A/C in and of itself that is giving you a headache. It's going from hot to cold and/or vice versa that is giving you a headache.

    I agree with LF - the seller just seems to be messing with you. I'd hate to think what further dealings with this person might be like.

    Who knows whether she's really in the hospital or not. You could find out by asking thru the realtor what hospital as you'd like to send her a get well card.

    I wouldn't be surprised if she needs time for other less than important reasons and is just saying hospital to buy some time.
