It seems that the house I bought last Friday was not really bought after all.
Weird, bizarre, frustrating...
We received double confirmation that the transaction was done (mortgage company and real estate company). We were given the keys to the house and we even did some initial repairs. Then we came to find out on Monday that the sale had not been registered. Even a week later now, and the purchase has not been completed. We are waiting for the seller to return the paperwork to the escrow agency.
No idea how the confusion started in the first place. Maybe it is just part of the package with foreclosure homes. I am sure one day I will be able to laugh about it, but right now laughter is not the first reaction that comes to mind.
