Moving Day Denied

Last Thursday was moving day. Well, it was supposed to be moving day. The buyers for my current house fell through. Yuck. So I didn't buy my new house. It was a great tragedy for us all. I really wanted that family in my house because I knew they would love it as much as I did.

Yesterday, my agent looked up how many houses were being put back on the market in Austin over the past few days, just to see if we were an exception to the rule. What she found was a relief (I'm not alone) and disheartening at the same time. Yesterday, 7 homes were put back on the market. The day before, 21. The day before that 44! My agent says it is the mortgage industry that is killing all these home sales.

So, I took a few days to recover emotionally. I should be back in the swing of posting regularly.

P.S. The one good thing that came out of this is a very clean house.

I'm so sorry! How awful (but nice for your clean house)! This just means there is an even more perfect house out there for you.
Thank you for the job listings! I have been lurking for a month and have gotten one freelance contract already!

Oh, how awful! I'm so sorry that you had to go through that. My family and I move in 10 days to our new house and at this point I just can't imagine it all falling through.

Thanks for all you do with this blog. It is so very much appreciated!
