So a lot has happened since my last house update. We found a house with the perfect location overlooking the lake and had 2,00-sq ft. It needed some updates and was being sold "AS IS". Our realtor suggested we do a 203k loan and get all the renovations done and added to our loan. We put in an offer at full price and 1/2 closing costs. The realtor for the seller is old and very grumpy. He automatically shut us down and said he wouldn't even take our offer to the seller because the house was being sold "AS IS" and would not qualify for an FHA loan. Our realtor tried to explain the 203k loan and he wasn't having any of it. This was on a Saturday. On Monday we had the mortgage broker call the old man and explain the loan to him. He came back and told our realtor that the sellers were wanting to agree to our offer, but he wasn't going to recommend they move forward with us unless we gave him our credit scores. My this time I was beyond pissed! I told Al there was no freaking way in hell I was giving this man my credit score. So we had our realtor write an amendment to our original offer stating what he was doing was not acceptable practice and we were not providing our credit score to him. No answer for another few days. Our realtor calls him back and asks if he received our response and of course he said no. He then says that he would be acceptable if we sent him two different approvals for above the listing price on the house. Well we were already accepted by three different lenders, so we did send the approval letters. He then states he never received an offer from us (almost a week later with no answers from first offer). Then hangs up on our realtor. Finally last Friday he said the sellers accepted our offer, but we had to pay our earnest money to him directly. We had until yesterday at 5 to respond. After talking and thinking all weekend, we walked away from a house we loved and had so much investment potential. We basically told him we were turning him into the real estate commission for not acceptable practice and we would not pay him a dime directly and then we walked away.
I am not sure about others who have sold and bought a home, but I handled the stress of infertility so much better than this crap.
Last week I ended up in the ER for what I believe to be the worst panic attack I've ever had. My whole body felt like it was on fire. I was nauseous, cramps, sweating, heart was racing at 150bpm. It was insane. They did do blood work and said my thyroid was abnormally high. I am waiting to get an appointment with my doctor, but they are booked up until mid August.
To top things off, poor Olivia is on her 3rd ear infection. She has been on two different antibiotics and it is still here, almost two weeks later. Her pediatrician called and they are referring her out to the ENT. I am just waiting to hear back from them.
Oh well this is life :) Wish I had a better update for you guys. Oh, I have been working on the girls 1st birthday party and I was so proud of myself, I made a Dum Dum centerpiece!
