Thanks for all of you who have sent good wishes for the new house.

Unfortunately, the closing today was cancelled.

The seller decided not to sign the closing documents.

It's a long story... but I'll shorten it by saying that a house that is in "short sale" carries many possible risks for the buyer. A lot of money is owed on the house. The seller is motivated by not having to pay back the money. This creates problems for the buyer.

I'm keeping hope that maybe the seller will sign, but realize that it is a pretty remote possibility.

A day that I planned to celebrate, has turned into a day of tears.

More to come, I guess.

Oh my gosh, Molly. I am so sorry. That place looked like the perfect house. Maybe things will work out. Don't give up.

Oh damn. Phooey.
Maybe its a planetary configuration that's causing all the mud to hit the propellor.
But, then again, maybe there is another, better house, that you were meant to have. You just never know.
Take care.

Molly, I'm so sorry.

Still keeping my fingers crossed that things work out with this one.

(Though if they don't, Kathy is right-- there may be another, better option waiting for you elsewhere.)

Hang in there.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. Maybe it just wasn't meant to happen. I hope that you find an even better place that works for you.
