Listed Properties Real Estate Agents Short Sale Investing

Geez this short sale deal is back and forth and the bank doesn’t even have it yet!

So I get a call from the seller saying they signed the agreement but they wanted to counter….fine. I had to CONFIRM tho that the wife signed it. She was there and the husband put her right on the phone. She said she initialed and signed everything and she understood everything. Ok cool.

Got the signed agreement and faxed it to the selling agent. Well the buyers didn’t like the new counter price so they backed out of the deal. I warned my sellers that could happen but they didn’t care. Don’t ya love how people never want to listen to the professional that they hire? That’s what makes being a real estate agent something that sooo doesn’t appeal to me and only comes 2nd out of missed investment deals…know what I mean?

Anyway, I told them the next time they get an agreement to try to sign it asap too so the buyers don’t get buyers remorse too. The husband said ok. (It took them a week to sign it practically….we were waiting on the wife.)

Fast forward to yesterday. I get a call from the selling agent and she told me the buyers called her and said they’d reconsider the house if the seller’s would sign off on the original price and then the buyers would entertain negotiating somewhat with the bank if the bank countered. Sooo I passed that info along to the sellers and after they thought about it they called me back and said ok.

Dropping the paperwork off today for the ORIGINAL offer price for the sellers. I’m hoping I get an signed agreement today from them.

On a super good front. Today is my first day of eating REAL food after an 8 day juice fast. I had 2 slivers of watermelon this morning and 1 egg (yolk only.) And it was amazing! Lunch and dinner are recipes from Emeri’s new show “Emeril Green.” That show rocks!

For you movie buffs….Kathy and I saw “The Invention of Lying” last night. It was cute and funny at times but it was longggg. It seriously could have been a 1/2 movie and I would have liked it much better. Kathy picked it (after I’ve been picking nothing but duds lately) and I look over at her and she was SLEEPING! lol

Ok off to Whole Foods to get some red snapper and lump crabmeat and some organic stuff for the 2 meals. Plus, we’re gonna either order an organic turkey for turkey day from there or from our local amish farmer (we know the farmers price, now we just need whole foods price.)

Have a great Saturday!

Real Estate Agents Short Sale Investing

Short sale listings can never be easy, can they?

So I dropped the aos off yesterday for the sellers of the property that I have listed that is a short sale. As I was leaving the husband shows up (to pick up the paperwork. The house is vacant, they live elsewhere.)

We chatted for a little bit and I told him to have it back to me tomorrow. And if he or his wife had any questions to give me a call. He said his wife is not doing to good and that she’s been in a “mood” and that she told him she wasn’t signing shit! 🙂 Lucky me.

He told me not to worry and he’s use to dealing with her and that he’ll have her sign it by tomorrow. We’ll see how that goes.

I feel bad for the lady as she was in a horrible car accident as a passenger, completely not her fault, so she’s very bitter and angry and emotional nowadays but geez, sell your house. She told me at one point she’d rather the bank take the house back rather then her not make a penny on it. Mind you, I been telling them from the start they ain’t gonna make a penny on it! At least I got the hubby on my side.

I was working on my schedule this morning while laying in bed and I should have it up later on today. Tarheel Ed, I got your request and I will shoot you an email later. Thanks for the welcome back, btw. 😉

I’m off to shower as Kathy and I have to go fill one of our atm’s that’s up the street as soon as she and Joe (her 9 yr. old) get back from church.
