The other day we got a phone call from one of our realtors. She informed us that after a long chat with the seller of our new home’s title company, they had discovered a bump in the road. More like an entire detour. A complete re-route that we could neither have expected nor could we do anything about. Like a detour that sends you down a back road, then provides less-than-obvious signage causing wasted time, gas money, and frustration. You get it. Derailed.
They informed us that in a bizarre sequence of life events, the seller DOES NOT ACTUALLY HAVE THE RIGHT TO SELL THE HOUSE AT ALL. BAM. So there it is.
Eight days before closing, we find ourselves with half of our apartment packed up in boxes, having already given notice, and having to start from the beginning in our home search. Lets just say that we are not thrilled. Hopefully we can get some of our money back from appraisals, inspections, etc. to help out with the (at least one) extra month of rent we will have to pay at the (very much increased) month-to-month rate.
And I had a lovely “our first home” graphic all worked up too! Boo. I guess I can still use it…
Everything happens for a reason, right?? Pray that we find what we are looking for before we waste any more time and money!
