What about splitting the difference with the buyers? Is that an option? Maybe cash in lieu?
Your realtor should be helpful!

All I got is but you got it in bucketloads!


We don't know yet where we stand. Some is nice to haves and some needsto be fixed. We will not cover the nice to haves. The costly repair will be wiring. We have older wiring, still good, but old and they want it replaced.

I'm sorry, that's a bummer.

Does the wiring present a safety hazard? If not, I might go back to them and split the difference. I mean, if you are buying a 100 year old house, you gotta expect some of that stuff! I know that there are certain types that HAVE to be replaced before a home is sold, but I'm guessing yours is not in that catagory? Hope you can work everything out! more

I agree with Stephanie...see if they will go partial on this...I mean you have been living there, and when you purchased the place, why didnt the other owners have to replace the wiring? I dont mind fixing things, but when to me it comes down that they want it "all" for nothing, that bothers me.
I think with the economy and housing market the way it is, they want the house handed to them with all "new and upgraded" things and still give you nothing. It terrible.
I hope it works out for you.
will keep sending pixie dust your way...

I've got a cold . Lost my voice this morning and have had chills. I've been in bed all day. DS had a motorbike accident on the weekend during an MX race day, nothing too serious, but he's had X-rays and an ultrasound. We go back tomorrow for the results but as the doctor doesn't get the report until this afternoon I'm sure that if we don't hear anything before tomorrow he will get the all clear. He wears all of his safety gear so he's pretty lucky.

I agree about the wiring and going half with a buyer. We had one fellow offer us something like $75K less (!) because of a broken gate latch and he wanted to put in his own dishwasher which would mean he'd have to make some changes to the kitchen cabinetry to make it fit! As if!!!! The agent said its people like that who aren't serious buyers and offer ridiculous prices in the hopes of getting a 'bargain'. And out house we were selling was only about 6 years old. The nerve of some people. He was most likely an investor.

Good luck with your inspector.

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well, hope you get better fast. Hope all the tests come back fine for your son, but like you said they will call right away if something is wrong. In any event here is some for both of you.

for you and DH!!!! Glad his accident wasn't too serious!

We had a close call this morning as we were taking a right curve, someone in the lane to our left decided at the last possible moment he needed to go right and cut us off! We laid skid marks!!!!! Thank goodness for good brakes.

for you and your husband. Both of you get better soon.

Well a few more hours and done with work for today, then I have to stop at the store, make my carrot cake and clean my bathroom....I am exhaused thinking about it...working tomorrow until 3m then another mad dash on getting the rest of the Thanksgiving dinner ready.....

I am thankful for having food on the table, a great family, and having to go to work on Friday morning this way I avoid the mess at the stores

Have a good one all

Thanks everyone for the pixie dust and prayers. We signed all the final papers this morning, done deal. We took a bigger hit than we wanted but if we would have lost the sale we would have had to get the wiring done ourselves before we could relist. Our house has a mix of current wiring and also the old Knob and tube. The knob and tube is the problem, even though it is in good shape, insurance companies won't insure a house if it has more than 20%, and ours did.

So we are truly thankful for what we got and now we can move on. So much to do. We have to have the house packed up by Sunday since the people are coming on Monday to set up the house to sell most of the contents and we have to have our suff out of the way. Then we leave for Florida on the 6th, Disney and house hunting combined, we come home on the 16th and move on the 17th. Crazy next few weeks but it's all good.

Congrats on the sale...hope your "house hunting" in Florida goes good for you.
But you do have a few busy days...so good luck with getting everything done that needs to be done.

So happy for you! Yay! I"m also a little jealous, I must admit!!! Living the dream!!! Have fun! Are you going for sfh or condo? In Orlando or a bit out? My dream? A little two-bed sfh with a pool outside of Orlando, somewhere near Tampa, actually so I will have a military base for shopping and medical. <sigh> a long time away
