What a let down!.....sigh

Okay-I am just going to say it. Our house sale fell through. The contract on our house, that is. The guy flaked out on us, and decided to "walk away". He says it is over the inspection--but we don't have details yet about what it was that threw him over the edge. He mentioned the furnace being older, but he knew its age before he made the offer. Something about our washer and dryer being plugged into the wrong power outlet....easy fix on that. Something else about the wiring to an outlet being backwards (???).....the electricity works in all our outlets--so I am not sure what is up with that. We are hoping we will get a full report of what they found. Because right now, it seems the guy just had buyers remorse and used the inspection as an excuse to change his mind.

It is very disappointing. I feel deflated. BUT--I am trying to remember and trust that this was not a surprise to God, and that He is in control. Obviously, this was not the right buyer. This has been a hard thing to accept, though. I won't lie. I have cried many tears over the whole thing. When Matt told me the news, I was in disbelief. Then came the tears and nausea.

Now I am concentrating on moving on, and accepting what I cannot change.

Oh, disappointing. I'm wondering, though, since it was such a quick 'sale'...perhaps another buyer won't be too long in coming? I'm trying to think positively. But, meanwhile, I think tears are absolutely understandable.

UGH! Yeah, that definitely sounds like he was using the HI as an excuse to get out. You only backout after a home inspection if it's major or you just need a reason. Stinky!

We'll pray a new buyer comes along!;-) And fast!!
