My realtor thought i was crazy with some of the stuff i had put into the contract, things like, Water in the pool, wanted the carpet removed, some other things fixed.
They signed it, and come closing, they had removed a hot tub (which was in the contract), not fixed 3 broken doors, 2 leaky outdoor faucets and hadn't removed the carpet (I knew they wouldn't).
In the end I walked away from closing with a $11,000 check to pay for what had been taken and what hadn't been done.
Just got done with removing the last shreds of carpet last fall lol, 8 years after the fact.
