They don't have the money
Sadly most of the people that want our house in Leimen really can not afford our house. They ask what the bottom price is, and they want us to go down 20,000 Euros more. We have the house listed at a price where we will lose 11,000 euro already. I showed the house to a very nice family today. But they complained that the house had no fireplace. Sure it would be nice to have a fire place. It would be lovely. I want a fireplace in my new house too...but I'm not dropping the price another 20,000 Euro so you can have your dream house. The idea of renting is growing on me. There are about 3 houses for rent in all of Leimen (over 20,000 people). I'm sure we would be able to rent it out very fast. And then we would not be looking at a big loss...instead we would be looking at a small gain. I don't like carrying the risk of the loan, but perhaps the small risk out weighs the sure loss. We show the house again on Saturday and Monday. Maybe it will sell? But I'm getting emotionally OK with renting it out. The people looking at our house hope we are so desperate we will accept any offer. But we are not so desperate. It reminds me of the few times guys asked me to marry them saying “I maybe the last person to ask you”. What a stupid reason to marry someone! I’ve turned down multi millionaires! I’m not desperate! If it’s right, it’s right. I’m not compromising…God is in control and I’m not desperate! This is how we live our lives, and so far it’s worked out very well. If God closes the door on selling our house, well I just need to trust him. But it would be so stupid to panic sell. There is no reason we need to do that!
