I have a sales listing that, after a few months, has still not gone to contract. We have had offers at the right price that didn't get financing, and some lowball offers we didn't take. I am very interested in getting my seller his top price -- so frankly, I was looking forward to the renters moving out so I could show it empty.

Wednesday: I call to see if I can show the unit the next day. "No," said the tenant. "We're going back to Europe. The movers will be here that day and the next. We'll be out Friday."
