House woes again

Sorry for the crappy photo - my camera ran out of juice and I had to use my phone. :-) I'm not making as much progress on my mystery as I would like. Duh, maybe I need to stitch to make progress? LOL! I spent three days in NY last week on business and I spent the rest of the week catching up on work and sleep. I should be getting the next installment in the mail any day and I was hoping to be done with part one before the part two came out.

I'm about 24 to 48 hours away from loosing the house - again. The seller has turned out to be uncooperative as can be. I needed to get in last weekend to start work on the FHA changes and they would not give me permission. So now I'm down to one weekend. And I still don't have "official" (written letter) from them for this coming weekend. The sellers agent says he can't contact him at all but what is funny about that is my sister drove by the house on Saturday and they were there and I drove by on Sunday to chat with a neighbor and they were there also. So much for that. But I did have one good piece of news, the sellers agent said he would take down the fence during the week so I won't have to do to take care of that piece of the FHA requirements. That little piece of help might turn out to be the difference in getting the house and not getting it.

Stay tuned - never a dull moment here. :-)

Buying a house is stressful, but it shouldn't be THAT stressful. Since we hadn't heard from you, I was hoping things were moving along. Darn. I hope it can still work out.
Sending big pug hugs your way :)

What is wrong with your sellers! Can't their agent make a personal visit to them? Can't the agent reason with them? GRRR-RR-RR! I am upset for you.

I'll cross my fingers that it all works out and I'll say a prayer or two too!

We just closed on our new place a couple of weeks ago. It was the worst process we have been through with a purchase. I don't think they acutally want you to buy a house these days they have made it very difficult. Hang in there.
