It's as if my marital home is possessed!

I have suffered false R for five years. I finally asked my STBXH to leave in January 2013 and we put our marital home on the market in late February 2013. We finally had a buyer in late September 2013. Settlement was to be this January 2014 as we had a soil cleanup to contend with from an underground oil tank. It took a bit longer than expected so settlement was pushed off until the end of February....just two weeks ago.

I made an offer on a beautiful townhouse for myself and my two daughters to move to. It was exciting and we were looking forward to our new beginning. Two days prior to closing.....our buyers walked!!!!! Financing fell through for them and even though my realtor found two other lenders for them, they walked away.

All of my belongings were already moved out of the house just a few days prior as we were ready for the move. This past weekend I had to move all of my things back in to my marital home. The townhouse I was expecting to move in to is back on the market and I am once again listing my home hoping for a quick sale!

I am exhausted and really want to begin my new life!!!! My daughters were so upset and disappointed and they were looking forward to our new surroundings!!!! I am trying to remain positive but it is so very difficult!!!!

It feels as tho this house is possessed!!!! Like it doesn't want us to leave!!! To close this chapter of our lives! I just can't take it! Please send me some MOJO today!!! We have a showing today and I desperately want these people to LOVE it!!!!

When do I get to move on from this mess???

I went through this same thing, honey. My buyers walked just days before closing and after I'd signed a lease and moved out with the kids. It nearly ruined me financially.

The house did sell eventually, as I'm sure yours will too. For now, however, I'm sending you every spare bit of SELL THIS HOUSE mojo I've got.

HOUSE UPDATE!!! Got a signed contract yesterday!

I am so damn happy! The only issue now is that the townhouse I had a signed contract on....went back on the market and they have another offer!!

I'm sad but I will find something else!

Good for you!
I had the same thing in Feb, but fortunately (?) my buyer walked before I'd commited to a new place.

House has been on the market since September. Getting stressed here! Hoping for spring luck. I won't feel like I'm really moving forward until I get out of the fucking McMansion my NPD WH had to have, that we can't afford even when together. I'd be happier in a little apartment than in my big ol' house full of memories.
