Never mind

The buyers for the condo backed out. They got the resale certificate from our condo association (standard thing--we had to pay $150 to get it), and since the association has been discussing replacing the siding and the windows (they have been discussing this for YEARS.......not happening any time soon!), they are concerned that they will have to pay for that soon, so they backed out. We had heard that they were going to ask us to put money into escrow, and any assessments that became due in the next year would be paid out of that money, but they ended up not even asking for that, and just backed.

Starting over.....

Not a big deal.. yes, a bummer, but buyers back out all the time.. In your new listing, offer that up front so ( like $3k or something) so that the deal sounds sweeter when they make the initial offer... that way they aren't surprised when they get the notice that the siding may get replaced soon.

What a tease! You already had that laptop picked out, I bet. And Ethan and that computer game.... well, I guess you need to learn some patience.... Good luck though. I'm sure you'll sell soon enough.
