When we closed escrow on the home in Del Dayo yesterday, the seller seemed very relieved. She was happy and said an odd thing, not something that I have not heard before because I certainly have; just did not think it applied particularly to this transaction. What she said was, "You are a bull dog." Well, I prefer to think of myself as an Afghan Hound, with long silky hair.
It was a bit contentious at the end since we did not close on time due to a snag with the buyer's lender. We woke up Friday morning believing it would close, and it didn't. That is not a good position to be in, having to explain to a seller why she has no place to live.
In fact, I cannot recall a concurrent closing from the past EVER not closing. Not in 44 years. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Stunning Home in Carmichael Closed Escrow at $1.2 Million.
