Your house is perfect for them, but...

That is the third time I have heard that phrase from my agent. But...he has to bring his wife. But...he doesn't know it's for him, even though it's her favorite. But...they don't really need all that space in the finished terrace level. The last one was the news from today. It was a daughter looking for her 75ish year old parents. Our upstairs is a ranch, and that's perfect for them. But about 2600 square feet in the basement is finished, and they just don't need it. However, they are determined to not have stairs in their living space, so it still just may work. And they can close the door to the basement, turn off the heating and air, and simply forget it's there. Or keep it for future "live in" care. Our agent told theirs that we would leave the golf cart (he's a big golfer) and be flexable on the price. The house they are selling has a contract with a contingency, so they will have to buy a house if the couple buying theirs follows through. Then maybe they'll choose mine. And maybe not.

Oh, I sure hope they DO pick yours! That's gotta be tough with three small kids having to be ready on short notice to show a house.

Wow...that stinks, but yeah, I think your house would be perfect for them. I mean...they could have grandkids stay in the basement.
