Well, I went and ruined everything - talking about my house sale. The deal fell through. After we had a verbal agreement on all the terms of the sale, the buyers backed out because they decided that they didn't want to live on a main road. HELLO??? They didn't REALIZE that the house was on a main road? I was just a tad ticked off. I think my seller handled it better than I did. I am just so sick and freaking tired of all of these deals falling apart. My last deal fell apart when my buyer walked after the home inspection that wasn't even that bad - no major problems! The other few offers I have written lately have been beaten by other offers or came in too low (after I warned my buyers that they were too low...) and we couldn't negotiate an agreeable price. I swear, some days I feel about ready to pack it in. I am SO frustrated. No sales in 5 months. Aside from my maternity leaves, this has been the longest I have gone without a sale. I am really glad, with the way things are going, that my family does not rely on my sales for income (we treat it as a bonus when I get a commission). So frustrating. Just had to get that off my chest. I have spent over $600 so far this year on real estate, but not made a cent. Am I nuts, or what?
The Meatloaf concert was very good. We had a nice time. Bonus: we found a restaurant that we had a Dine A Mate coupon for ($10 for the both of us!) and we found a free parking spot instead of paying $5 to park in the lot. It was nice to get out. Last night we celebrated my father's birthday, and tonight we have a surprise 50th birthday party for my cousin's husband. It's nice to get my mind off my latest failure...I definitely plan to party it up tonight
Really, really frustating deal
