Bumps in the road
And this week, on Wednesday, we received a call from our agent, and shortly after that, a termination of transaction form to sign.
The seller has many issues, not all of which have to do with us, the house, or selling the house to us. I'm not sure what's going on, but I should have realized sooner that it was time to walk away. At this point in my life, I would never go through this kind of gymnastics to make a relationship work: if, no matter what I tried, what I said, what I did, the answer was still no, I'd accept the no and move on.
You can't make someone love you against their will. And you can't make them sell you their house when, every time they agree, they then come up with a new condition that throws everything into chaos.
So we signed the termination, and I followed up with a text to my agent with a list of six more (backup) properties we're going to see this Sunday.
I'm disappointed, but I'm not upset, and I'm not really surprised.
And in the end, I feel like we might just have dodged a bullet. Maybe the universe was trying - in every way possible - to tell us this wasn't the right house. And maybe I have to be whacked over the head to get the message.
On to the next.
