Simultaneously with listing his home in late summer 2010, he retired from his job and put a deposit on a retirement condo in a warmer climate. As 2011 draws to a conclusion without a NY contract, the hapless homeowner has defaulted on his SC condo.
Don’t ask this luckless guy “How’s it going?” if you see him, unless you’re prepared to listen to his tale of woe. His down-on-my-luck account ends with a statement many long-suffering homeowners surely share: “I’m in limbo. I’m not working anymore, but I sure ain’t retired.”
