So far, progress equals zero on the home front. The seller's agent is incompetent to the point that I actually wonder if he is properly licensed, and if so, what it takes to file a complaint with the licensing board.
At this point it's as obvious as William Shatner's toupée that we will not be closing in time for the 3-day weekend.
Actually, given this yahoo's general level of competence, we might not actually be able to ever close on this property.
I am therefore considering driving to LA for the LAFA monthly housefilk this weekend instead.
