So, the guy who’s going to buy the house now stopped by to visit. I can’t wait to meet his wife – he’s a pisser, and she sounds like a lot of fun, too. However, I did have to criticize him – they started doing some visualization and spellwork to ger our original deal to fall through, and it worked. I would have preferred that they had done it earlier so we didn’t have to go through all the hassle!
How to get a real estate deal canceled – go through with the inspector and prompt him with stuff like “don’t you think this is dangerous?” and “how many lives will be lost if this breaks” and such, then insist that the sellers do at least $90K worth of work to fix the house before you’ll close. Saying to the wife, though, “Honey, you’re friggin’ nuts, we’re not bidding on this house” will save a lot of grief all around. Take my word for it.
