I’m kind of stuck in the “anger” stage of not getting that house. Please forgive me while I vent. What makes me angry is that the people who own the house I’d hoped to be moving into next month bought that house a short time ago. Every thing that is wrong with that house was wrong or going to go wrong with that house when they bought it.
They could not have purchased that house on the up and up and not known that the roof, plumbing, and air conditioning were all about to go.
And yet, they’re trying to move out of that house without having addressed those things, as if some other chump is going to come along and buy the house and turn around and put $15,000 (my rough guess) into the house.
I mean, people, if you were going to buy a house that costs x+$15,000 in the next three years, you could buy a house that costs that right now and it would have all those things already addressed.
Don’t get me wrong. I think there are reasons why they’re doing what they’re doing. It’s not my place to speculate.
It’s just that I loved that fireplace and had already been dreaming about my dog in the back yard.
