A gentleman rang our doorbell today about 11 am. I went over the gate and down the stairs, figuring it was someone looking for the lady in the apartment downstairs, who sells rescue dogs.
Nope...it was some one delivering a note from a local real estate agent, that said:
"I represent the new owners of the building. Please contact me today/tonight or tomorrow at the latest. We need to speak asap."
Apparently, my landlord lost the building to the bank. I had no idea what was going on, but it now makes sense that he didn't respond to my email from Monday. Hmmmm, what's next???
Don't know anything yet, still waiting for the real estate gentleman to call me back. The guy doing the dirty work (delivery of message) did tell me that they have a "cash for keys" program, and from the way he talked they want people out asap. My lease is until November, and he said they "sometimes" honor them.
Just out of curiosity, I did scope out Craigslist today....not a whole lot there. Mostly $1200-$1500 homes for rent ...or higher. With this economy, do these people who own these homes they can't afford themselves, really think someone else can afford to pay their outrageous mortgage so they can keep the house? Apparently they do...and if anyone is foolish to fall for that...good luck to them.
Please keep us in your prayers, as we wait to hear what will happen, and that if we have to move, that something reasonably priced becomes available.
