LOL- but in what order? Divorce to get the proceeds of the old home or buy and move then divorce (ony kidding)

Pick the state with the better divorce laws in your favor

Yep the first thing I did when I got up this morning was clean up the mess DH left. He yells at the kids to clean up and then leaves his dirty sox and clothes from the day before on the floor near the bed. LOL! He tells me I leave stuff around too! My reply is always the same yep maybe but I am the one who picks it up too! Love him dearly but some things will just never change. I have to go to an appt at noon today. I am leaving my almost 13 year old in charge. Nervous wreck! Who knows what I may come home to!

The other day when he was done showering, I asked him if he took his dirty clothes out of the bathroom and wiped up (I was having a showing that day),and he replied YEP. I went up in my bedroom, opened the closet door to put the lights on for the showing, and there they were!!!!!!!! If any of the guys out there would mind telling me, HOW HARD IS IT TO PUT THEM IN THE !@#!! $%^&* HAMPER????!!!!!

What about the dishes, hello, the dishwasher is right next to the sink and counter, is there that much effort to put it in there instead

At that point, I would then show up at the agent's office. And if the agent is not there, it doesn't matter. You signed a legal document and are therefore obligated to have a copy. They usually keep those contracts at the office so even the receptionist can get you a copy if needed. And if that doesn't even work, make a scene in front of other clients. They don't want to be embarrassed so they'll basically give in to your demands. My husband does that alot and let me tell you it works most of the time.

Good luck!

Glad to hear that you sold! BTW, Weis02 is correct and unfortunately a lot of people don't bother to read the fine print or what is filled in on the contract because basically signing your house sale in someone else's hands can be very stressful and emotional. A seller has the right to even sign for 30 days only with an agent no matter if they say 'we contract for a minimum of 90 days...' or 'our firm does not allow us to go below 6%'. That's a load of crap. Not sure how it works in NC, but here in NY, we do nothing but negotiate and with the high real estate value on Long Island, even 3% is a lot to give someone for a home that YOU worked so hard and sacrificed for. BTW, this is in no offense to any real estate agents, just our emotions talking...
