everybody was just kidding

Our buyer dropped out yesterday. Our real estate agent said they'd been a little bit odd/flaky from the beginning WRT to their questions/concerns, so altho it was a unexpected it wasn't as big a surprise as it might have been. Dropping the price 20K and putting it back on the market today.

Oh, and one of my clients cancelled a week in August that they had booked months ago, so that's not exactly a financial boost. I had turned down four other clients who wanted August time, and these guys flake 4 days before I'm supposed to show up. I really need to include a cancellation penalty in my contracts...

Sounds like a good day to break something... got anything you could throw across the room and watch shatter into a million pieces? Bummer and yes, include a cancellation fee that goes up as time gets closer... hope next week turns around!

i'm sorry, bryan. maybe blogging before they're hatched (or something like that) brings bad luck. not that i'm superstitious or anything...

coming to our site might help assuage a little(?) -- at least client-booking-wise. you *should* have a cancellation fee of some sort (but you know, if it's us cancelling, we would have an extremely good reason, i'm sure. there should be extenuating circumstances for "special" clients"!) :)

wish you the best of luck with the house and your bookings.

and I don't know why, but every time I read the title of this post, I just crack up....just thought I'd throw that in there.

House-selling must be just about the most stressful thing around (well, except divorce. And raising children. Hmm.)

Wishful thinking: drive that house down here, lower the price a bit, and we'd love to take it off your hands.

Here's hoping a few small worries get taken care of, somehow, sometime soon...
