We were almost at the lawyers, 15 minutes from the scheduled close on our old house...everything finally packed into three Units or Pods for transport to the new place when our realtor called to tell us the close had been postponed!
Seems the buyers had forgotten one piece of paper and their bank was holding their mortgage application until it could review stuff. So the buyers were stuck in a motel somewhere and we were stuck on the living room floor of my sister-in-law's.
And we still are!
Waiting for some banker to get around to approving the buyer's application. Probably now won't happen until Monday! At least there is wifi here and we have an iPad. But it sucks. We had kept out clothes for two days that now have to keep getting washed and re-worn.
And I don't want to think about what will happen if the unknown, uncaring banker decides not to put his stamp of approval on it and the whole thing falls through at this point.
