Moving Back Home

The Democrat and Chronicle has featured several articles about young professionals that have gone on to bigger and hopefully better places only to move back to sweet ol' Rochester.   But I have a less happy tale to tell.

About 60 days ago we received a full price offer on my lovely colonial located in the quaint village of Wyoming.   Because Wyoming is such a small community, the sellers got to meet the buyers and everybody was excited about the anticipated closing date.

About 3 or 4 weeks ago, the sellers knocked on the door of the buyers to see if they wanted their lawnmower and some furniture.  Although they were pretty certain they were home (this is just down the street from where the sellers live)but no one would answer the door.

That weekend the sellers rented a u-haul and moved out about half of their furnishings.  The next weekend they finished the job.    Since this family has three small children under the age of 4 and both parents work full time, it was not an easy endeavor.

Long story short, it took lots of phone calls to the buyer's agent, the buyer's attorney and even the buyer's loan officer but it eventually became apparent that the buyer's didn't have the money necessary to close.   Without a doubt, that was a disappointment.  But what is infuriating is that everyone on the buyer's side knew this and didn't tell the seller's side until the day of the scheduled closing.   And so my sellers are moving back home.

This is a lovely home, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths.  It will be open this Sunday, October 30th, 1 till 4 pm which just happens to be the Appleumpkin Fall Arts and Craft Festival.  The address is 60 Main Street and the price is $99,900.  Here is a slide show about the property.
