Do you remember waaaay back when I talked about us buying a house? A second house that we wanted to flip? Yes? No? OK I'll recap. We bought this house that was vacant for around five years. It was this tiny little house that happened to be next door to us and was offered to us at a crazy low price. Like the price of a new car. I am not even kidding. So we took on the project and worked our hiney's off. OK, fine. Pedro worked his hiney off, I was big and pregnant. I picked the paint colors and painted them. They are fantastic colors too...
Anyway. We listed the house as the real estate market plummeted right into the sewer. Two months ago we agreed to let our over-baring neighbor re-list it. He is a creepy dude. Pedros reasoning...If he is that ambitious, maybe he can sell it? The man is an asshole. He is thinking about his own bank statement, not ours. Yesterday he came over all huffy. I was driving in.
"I bet you are looking for Pedro?"
"He had to go to Chicago for the week."
"He told me he'd meet with me today!"
"Sorry. I think we are going to decline the offer."
"Just decline and let the buyer walk away? I think you are making a huge mistake."
"Sorry. We just worked on this house too long and too hard to not even brake even."
"Why then am I wasting my money marketing it if you aren't willing to budge."
"The house is paid for and we really need to look out for ourselves and not lose money." (since you obviously aren't concerned about our best interest ASSHOLE!)
"Well I need to eat too." (WTF. Did he really just say that? I am done.)
"I'll have Pedro call you...(dickface)"
"OK have a goodnight." (I think he realized he just made an ass of himself.)
"Yup." (Trying to not jump out of the car and kick him square in the nuts.)
So tell me. When did it become OK for the realtor you hire to treat you like garbage? Isn't he supposed to be concerned with my best interest?
So now we are taking it off the market and hoping to rent it for a year or two. Who wants to be my neighbor. I bake things like cupcakes and cookies and take them to my neighbors...Now? Alright, fine. At least take a look at it. Click on the picture for the entire set.
She's cute isn't she? She is causing me all kinds of grief;I think I'm ready to name her. We may be together for a loong time. Betsy? Does she look like a Betsy to you?
