Not listed as

February 8th, 2010 at 03:30 pm

Things between me and BB are back to normal. Things were normal again 2 days later. The fight helped to clear the air and we are back on board with each other again.

Regarding the new townhouse we are purchasing: The selling realtor (who is also the owner) wont list the house as "under contract." She still has it up for sale. She is afraid our financing will fall through- or she wants higher offers. My realtor is fuming mad over this. He is first a friend of ours- but since he is a realtor we used him to buy the place. He got tipped off that something was off when the owner/selling realtor called him ansd asked for the keys to the place because she was showing it. Then over the weekend our realtor got several cash offers for the place and he is sure the owner/seller has received about the same volume. But together we double checked our contract and as the seller- she signed and dated everywhere- so it's binding. We got the place. The mortgage appraisal is today.

In other news- someone somewhere got hold of my credit info and started buying things in France. My CC company was great in alerting me and shutting it down.

Thats about it. Off to read all of your blogs now.

    In France?! I always hate it when my credit card has more fun than I do!

    Good luck with all the house stress.

    The credit card company acted quickly because, under US law, the card holder is only liable for $50 worth of fraudulent purchases. The credit company takes a loss on any losses due to fraud that exceed that amount, so they were really just acting in their own best interests.

    Game, I know that is nerve-racking but I do understand her being afraid about the financing. Our realtor took our house off the market that was "sold" and the financing fell through for the buyers. It is still unsold and I can't help but wonder if she had not taken down the sign what may have happened, especially since the house across the street sold after our accepted offer and ours has a huge deck and upgrades and asking price was the same. Hang in there! You have the signed contract.

    I'd sweat more about you wanting to buy the place at the contracts than sweating about whether the sellers want to sell the place to you. Control what you can control; ignore what you can't.

    my uncle had the same thing happen to him, the CC company were tracking the person and the last usage of the card was in thailand, the day before the boxing day tsunami hit!! so either the card got lost , or....

    Actually, isn't that a breach of contract?

    Um, look on the bright side. If for some reason you want to breach the contract, they already breached it first. You could blame them. Big Grin
    Overall, I agree with not worrying about what you can't control. But it is terribly obnoxious!!!
