We are in the process of trying to buy a home. We had found a home in our ideal neighborhood, ideal location, ideal size and a good price. However, we chose to walk away. The house was bank-owned, but not a short sale. It happened to be owned by Chase. We thought everything was going fairly well, we had countered back and forth with them a few times and finally come to a number we all agreed on. Then the addendums were sent to us. They were crazy!! 5 business days to complete ALL inspections..no matter what. Now, under normal circumstances that might be doable. However, Chase did not have the gas and water turned on yet and they flat out said it did not matter if they had it turned on or not but that once we signed we had 5 days. End of story. That was just one of many crazy clauses so we walked away. Saturday the kids and I are going with our realator to look at some more houses and see what is on the market.
Have you ever owned a home? Do you currently own? How was your process; smooth, bumpy, great?
Hopefully soon I can post on here that we have found an even better house!
