Looks like we are closing on Monday. Buyers house sale closed on time and they waived all inspections on ours.

The buyer has been pushing so hard it's starting to piss DW off asking for early possession, moving up the closing date, etc. We committed to a date and we ain't changin'... I have always believed early possession is like handing the buyers your checkbook the quickest way to queer a deal They are circling the block in their Uhaul very anxious to move in, but what they need to stop and realize is that we have to move, too... The new house still needs a ton of work finishing touches before we can start moving our stuff in- which we will do this weekend.
We got the "block circling" also but since the buyers were young and our house was a huge upgrade for them, we knew they were extremely excited. It did get us to move sooner than we might have (we moved 5 days after closing instead of 30) but in a good way. Facing moving ourselves caused a good case of "maybe we'll start packing tomorrow" to set in. The "stalking" caused us to get the show on the road and we are really glad we did.
