We may have been saved by a friend of mine who wants to buy the place for investment purposes for more than the owner is selling it for. This friend, the real estate agent, and the owner are meeting here at 12:30 tomorrow to look at the place.
If it happens, this buys us time as I plot my next move. If not, at least I know others were given a chance to get it. I'm not sure why this makes me happy, but there's something so backroom and underhanded and possibly illegal about this deal as is - a house selling for $20,000 - 30,000 under its market value in the span of three days without being listed, a sale catalyzed by a possibly scam-artist lead inspector - that to expose some light on it in any way at all makes me feel like justice is being served at least a little. Really, anything to wipe the smugness off the real estate agent's face in knowing that she's screwing over the 80-year old owner of the house makes me happy. My sense of justice is feeling replenished.
