The (shit) News…..
Posted by captainbeaky on July 22, 2008
So the past few days Ive been a bit secretive as I hoped to surprise everyone with good news….no such luck. Here-in is the short version of events.
1 – Saturday – saw nice house in Yarraville and found it was a good price. Estate agent said would consider ending before auction for right offer.
2, – Sunday – mulled over the house and decided to put an offer in, pre-auction.
3, – Offer was rejected by vendor, so asked what price they were after to end early.
4, – Vendors changed their minds and said they wanted to go to auction. On the strength of a load of sticky-beaking on their first inspection day (Saturday)
Bloody idiots. We offered a veritable blank cheque, settling in 30 days and a hassle free purchase. No. Thats not good enough apparently. The greedy fuckers would rather see how much money they can get by going to auction in a market where interest rates are at an 18 year high, the housing market has slowed to a standstill, and auction clearance rates are at 60%. Stupid, stupid people. So bollocks to ’em. I might get in touch before the auction, but I would soon as spit on them as give them money right now. We’ll see.
Anyway, Im not thinking about it now. I’ll only get wound up about it all over again. Off to see Batman tonight so hopefully it will live up to the hype. Im hobbling along everywhere thanks to an ingrowing toenail. Im persevering with it right now as Im not sure whether I have nail wedged in my toe or whether Ive just irritated the skin under my nail by cutting it hideously short. Dope! Time will tell!
Will post more if anything changes……..
