.... and back to square one

The buyers backed out.

Apparently, the reason they'd wanted to close so fast was that their landlord wanted them out by the end of the year.  Landlord was planning to sell the building or convert to condos or something, so gave everyone notice.

So, after I counter-offered with the middle of January, they went back to their landlord and said, "Hey, could we have another two weeks?"

And the landlord said, "Y'know, I'm not selling.  And I'm not letting you out of your lease.  So you're stuck here through August."

And when this information finally trickles down to me, I'm thinking, "OK.  Good to know."  Probably would've been better if their landlord had let them know about this before they started making offers and stuff. 

So, I'm a little disappointed.  But also pleased that we went through this little journey.  I'd been getting really depressed that nobody was making any offers on the place, so it made me feel much better to know that there are people out there who are willing to meet my price on my condo.  Now I just have to find someone who isn't, y'know, stuck in a one-year lease.

You'll sell it when the time is right.
