Glad I didn't get my hopes up TOO high! The balloon of hope started deflating slowly as the days wore on so it popping at this point doesn't really cause any sort of wild flying across the room in frenzied collapse to the floor. This burst balloon was already settled onto the floor and just bobbing along wherever the drafts shoved it.
I talked with (___Buyer's Agent___) and he said that, unfortunately, the buyers' deal fell through. Looks like it's pretty dead, but I'll keep you posted
Another balloon will come this way again...just not sure when.
