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.
