We are still waiting for a baby.
We are still waiting for a house.
We made another offer on a house. Nice design. Nice location. And then the inspection came along.......
New roof needed.
New garage door needed.
Pool questionable with what work needed to be done.
Add up needed repairs and possible repairs, it no longer seemed feasible.....
so we said "no thank you ma'am" and "please give us back our earnest money as soon as you can."
Here in Arizona you have 10 days after offer is signed and approved to cancel such offer for no reason, but usually the reason is something goes wrong with the inspection. Arizona law is more in favor of the buyer than the seller and we are thankful since we currently are the buyer.
So I thought I would tell you a few stories about our realtor.
I love her so. I did say she drove us crazy and she does at times, but she is the most dedicated, most sincere, most "I'm on your side realtor" than I had ever known (not that I know many).
She is incredibly busy. She is incredibly skinny. I don't think she takes time to breathe or eat.
Early on when we were looking at houses with her, she told us of a mother and daughter that were visiting from Wisconsin, looking for second houses. Both bought houses after spending the whole weekend looking at one house after another, rejecting the majority of them. For her weekend's work, she made $34,000.
A week ago she mentioned she listed a house to sell for 3.1 million dollars (I can't imagine). Nosy as I am, I asked her what her commission would be when she sold it. She said "$90,000". I have no words......
We are NO WHERE near any of the house prices mentioned above. But she fights for us, advises us, has shown us dozens of houses and keeps meeting us when we ask her to.
She is the best of the best.
And if you are ever looking for a house to buy in the Phoenix area or sell in the Phoenix area, I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
It truly was a match made in heaven when we found her; she has a faith, we have a faith; we have a faith God will lead us to that right house.......
As we speak............
I might be a grandmother......
so very soon............
certain signs are pointing in that direction
thank you Lord
