Sorry neighbors...

The ditzy airhead agent that our buyer is using called and left a message saying that her buyer would be in town and would like to see the house at 10am Saturday morning if that was okay and to call her back and let her know. So I called her and she said, "great, he's hasn't seen the house yet, just online, so he's really excited!" I swear, I felt my stomach drop. That is confirmation that this is an investor. Real people don't buy houses on the basis of their listing online, even though ours was fantastic. I hate the fact that my neighbors will have to deal with yet another rental in their midst. Sorry guys, unfortunately I don't have any control over what the buyer does, especially if they lie and say they are relocating and going to live in the house. The pest control guy also came out today and said there were signs that squirrels had gotten in, so we're going to go ahead and pay $265 to get the possible access points sealed off and any vermin trapped. It's only $100 more than just trapping them and it will give our asshole buyer peace of mind. Which is great, because I could give a rat's ass about our buyer. I hope one of the vermin gets stuck in here and crawls down and bites him. That would be awesome.

I can see how it would be sad if a house that you put your heart and some years of your lives into was bought by an investor. Is the investor from California? I swear I didnt want anyone from CA buying our old house. Sometimes it feels like they are the new generation of carpetbaggers. My apologies to any people from CA. But if you sat and watched your native Austin market become overvalued and unaffordable due to the demand created by buyers investing from the West Coast you would be bitter too.

Our house was bought by a woman who said she was relocating, and then she rented it out. It *was* depressing for just the reasons Yer Mama listed. *sigh* Oh well. When you have to move, you have to move, and unfortunately most of us don't get to pick our buyers.
