Home sales nightmare

last month

You know how people throw around terms like "disaster" or "nightmare" to describe minor inconveniences. Here's a really bad story.

A week ago on September 1st a EF2 tornado touched down in Upper Dublin, a community near us. A couple had closed on their new house on the 31st, and had a lease-back agreement with the sellers. The buyers took off to the Jersey Shore for the long weekend, while the sellers were using the time to move out.

Yup, house is probably 90% destroyed. The tenant/seller's insurance company and the buyer's insurance will probably be arguing this one for many months.

So think twice about using the word disaster, and be thankful that your problems are minor in comparison.
