We suspected that the lady wanting to buy our house was going to back out of the contingency contract due to a couple of reasons, one of which is a poor market where she is trying to sell her house. At one time, there were possible issues as to whether she was going to have a serious health issue, but that we haven’t confirmed.
Anyway, the realtor helping us with our “Home for Sale by Owner” called and said that she had officially released the contract on our house. So, although we have still been somewhat active in selling even without her contract, we will have to get a little more aggressive now.
Hopefully, her health isn’t as bad as she thought. She was a nice young lady with a teen-age daughter. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be for her to be a single mom and still afford this house.
We still have a couple of options. Devon Energy is building a new 50 story headquarters building in downtown Oklahoma City and an energy company out of Enid, Oklahoma is buying their old headquarters building. That would be roughly 250 people moving from Enid into the Oklahoma City area. Maybe one of those folks would be interested. We are seriously considering putting a classified ad into the Enid paper.
Who knows? I might even get bold enough to send some kind of message with information right to the Enid energy company. But, for now, we get a little more active in trying to sell the house. While the housing market isn’t that bad in the Oklahoma City area, homes in the price range of our house aren’t really moving that fast.
Wish us luck.
Here is a sort of aerial view or out neighborhood. Our house is the one with the “X” on the roof.
