With nine days until closing, our buyers came back to us demanding $6000 to offset some structural damage found in the inspection. To me, this felt like a shakedown. To me, if felt like they were thinking they held all the cards. After all, we close on our new house in nine days, our house has now been off the market for six weeks, and we can't afford to lose this sale, right?
Wrong. We told the buyers to go f**k themselves. Well, my husband did anyway via our lawyer. If you are gonna play Texas Hold Em against my husband, you better be holding pocket Kings before you begin counting your winnings. My husband isn't likely to let you take the pot, based on a bluff. He's likely to "call it." In our house, we like to make you EARN your win.
