The whole situation was has been very stressful. I think timelines here are important to get out front.
Closing was originally October 7th, but the buyer could not close on the 7th. Two weeks before closing the buyer was going to back out unless we moved the date to November 1st. My wife and I agreed and moved the close date back. We already committed to move out of state and had my brother take care of the house, pool, & yard.
This was unusually early in our real estate agent’s opinion, but we agreed. They weren’t happy that the pool was ‘foggy’ due to the shock/chlorine we had just put in the night before. If you know anything about pools, this is normal to keep it clear. I was not able to be there to maintain the pool myself since I had moved out of state for a new job. Lucky for me my brother took pictures!
The buyers complained the pool was foggy again. My brother put 2 lbs of shock into the pool hours before they showed up. I again had to explain to my realtor that the were just keeping the pool clean.
We were shocked to hear there was a leak in the sunroom. We sat in the sunroom almost every day and never noticed any problems.
We immediately call the buyer’s agent and asked to speak with the buyer about this. We had already moved hours away and was just ready to move forward.
