“Closing Date Set for 6/1/18”

“Closing Date Set for 6/1/18”

 

 

It was not a misprint. A prospective client contacted me a few weeks ago after reading one of my blogs about qualifying for a mortgage after a short sale. After reviewing all of his information I let him know that based on current regulations he would not be able to qualify for a mortgage for two and a half years.

 

This morning I got a purchase agreement from a Realtor that was representing him that had a closing date of 6/1/18, which would take it to the three years that were needed. What are the odds of a seller waiting that long? Apparently this one is totally OK with it.

 

I can assure you I never expected this individual to find a seller who would agree, but he did. The purchase agreement has a $5,000 non-refundable deposit, a monthly rental fee 25% higher than what would be normal for a $195,000 home, so maybe the seller is not so foolish.

 

You just never know when you give someone a mission the creative ways they might just come up with a solution. Now that is what I call planning ahead for my future business.
