Is "returning" a house an Alabama thing? Or just a crazy thing? Or is there a difference?

ImpendingCynic: Is "returning" a house an Alabama thing? Or just a crazy thing? Or is there a difference?


When I once bought a car in Texas from a dealership, one of the disclosure agreements I signed was that I understood that all sales were final, and that the state did not provide for any "cooling off period" in case I changed my mind and wanted cancel the sale.

Who the hell does that?

At least he had the decency to take himself out after he realized what he'd done, saved everyone the expense of a trial.

Shame he didn't do it before killing the realtor though.  If you buy a property sight-unseen and then don't like it, that's your fault.

He may not have saved the victim, but in all fairness he did gun down the perpetrator, preventing further violence

Reasons, I need reasons. Now, if the previous five owners had also seemingly  become suddenly dissatisfied with the house, and all were heard to be yelling, "Now is the time for the retribution of Zor", as they all were one by one arrested for public disturbance, until this guy, who mysteriously buys the place after seeing an ad and then he just suddenly starts glowing green because he's possessed by some 5th century B.C. god or something, well...

I rented a flat sight unseen. Aside from photographs and the location on a map. I knew it was a gamble, but as I was moving from Edinburgh to London I decided I'd rather chance it than walk 500 miles and walk 500 more just to be the man who walked 1000 miles to walk through a door.

Or book a train journey for that distance.

It's called "right of rescission" and I've seen 36 hours, 72 hours, and none unless stipulated in the contract.  It's also handled in mortgages, refi, some insurance and  vehicle purchases.

"Baglione contacted Arn-Oelschlegel and asked him to come to the house to work things out. When Arn-Oelschlegel arrived, Baglione shot and killed him."

What could have been worked out in the situation? The sale was over and the real estate agent had nothing to gain by going.

I bought a house unseen. Kinda. My job was moving across the country. I had a one week house hunting trip but found nothing. The realtor called me and said she had one. She took photos and two people from work that were already there toured it. I bought it. As I was driving across the country when I did move, I kept thinking ... I wonder what my house looks like :) I drove past it as soon as I got to the new city. The previous owner was still there until the end of the month. They were moving into a retirement/nursing home.

My first house had something like that. Three days iirc.  And that was in Texas.

There's a reason psychotic octogenarians from Alabama buy real estate "site unseen," and it's this guy.  Realtor should have seen it coming, but that's working on commission, dude.

Lots of people, which is why the law exists in many states. Between salesmen pressure tactics and emotional purchases there's a lot of buyers remorse in the first day or two which is why the states have such cooling off periods. The dealership doesn't really get harmed as the title would not have transferred so it could still be sold as new.

I imagine the realtor's boss told him "You'd better go and talk to him over there at the house. I don't want that nutjob coming here, there's no telling what that crazy ol' coot might do."

If you are planning on a murder suicide it is in your best interest to make sure your gun is in working order and the best way to do that is to load your gun, stick the barrel in your mouth, and pull the trigger. If it goes Bang! then the gun is in proper working order.

An 84yo man described as

He was 84 and had been acting strange... my money's on some form of dementia. Honestly, the purchase in and of itself was pretty strange.

Fun fact. After some 10 years in our house we decided to replace the ground level floor with laminate. The original floor is hardwood except the kitchen and bathrooms. So, not really replace but layer the laminate over the top of the original hardwood flooring where it existed.

The first order of business was to tear out the carpet in the living room. And under the carpet I found a basketball sized dark stain on the original hardwood floor. I don't want to know what it is but it's hard to think it's anything but old blood.

The human body holds a LOT more blood than a basketball. Might've been a toddler knocked over a can of woodstain, or a glass of wine while the floor was stripped & the later-applied woodstain didn't cover it like planned so they said fark it & carpeted it vs stripping it all again.

Fine for my needs. It is an old 1940's house. Built sturdy but everything looks old. I never bothered to modernize it. It was in my budget and set a little apart from the other houses.

I know. But there is no dark trim or wood stain in the house. The paint is all light colored. I know it could have been whatever. Still creepy thinking about it
