Just read this thread - what a goat rodeo. Are you guys downsizing? We're thinking about that since we are empty nesters and don't need all this space (or to live in a neighborhood with tons of little kids), but I really don't want to go through either the selling or buying processes (much less the packing/moving/unpacking one), and reading your saga just reinforces that.
Plus I want to enjoy our newly remodeled master bath for awhile.
At this point it's starting to bother me, and that's not good. We are effectively down to disagreeing on who should be fixing a pipe, which would be between $200-300. I went off with our realtor today, who has actually stepped up a little bit the last few days and actually seemed to be helping. But she thinks I'll just let the deal fall through. I'm going to wait until Monday and just sign off on it, and hope that the realtors freak out and come up with the money for the fix. If not, we'll just sign off and put this behind us.
Our lawyer absolutely sucks though. So the women says that our inspection broke the alarm system, and she wants us to pay and I tell the lawyer that I don't even care if the thing is fixed, that I don't even want one in the house. That's true, I'll just turn it off and never use it. But then I got pissed and wrote back 1 min. later and said that no, I did want it fixed and expected it to be fixed. Not that I'll use it, but I want that [expletive] to fix it just to spite her. He replies that it's past the 5 day lawyer some [expletive] and that he can't add that to the list. [expletive] you idiot - if the roof blows off the house does that mean I don't have the right to expect a roof to be on the house when we close? I'm not adding anything, the [expletive] said there was an alarm system and she needs to make sure it's there and functioning when we close.
