Here I am, sitting in Turner’s Coffee Shop in Mountain View, Arkansas. I suspect this might be a little taste of what life will be like on a day to day basis soon. Sitting in a coffee shop, using a computer. Not creeping out.
I still have a home but I can’t go there right now. The buyer’s home inspector is there doing a “home inspection”. This is a process where the buyer pays an housing systems expert to go over the house and identify all current and potential problems. Then the buyer looks at the report and can then decide whether they want to go ahead with the purchase of the house.
Really, it is an opportunity for the buyer to change their mind if they want to without losing their earnest money. Whatever. The part I don’t like is having a bunch of strangers in my house, unsupervised. Invariably the buyer and their whole extended family will come over for a look-see knowing I’m not there. And, the inspection takes a minimum of three hours, plenty of time for someone to go through everything in every drawer in the house. Just the thought of it creeps me out.
