This is the shout box, right? I'm shouting. I'm not allowed to show emotion or let "it" bother me....therefore I'm hiding under this pillow and screaming!!
A client (personal friend) just bought a home For Sale By Owner. I'm happy that she and her daughter have a nice home to go to but.........
I have logged 417 miles
3 week-end days appointments
4 week days appointments
countless telephone conversations (cell minutes)
a trip to the county plan commision to check on building codes
and countless computer hours
trying to find what she wanted ( an older style 2-3 bedroom, 1-2 bath, with large yard and garage) for under $115,000.00 (Elbow room a MUST..subdivisions are OUT)
(oh and she ALWAYS said she would never buy on first look...she wanted to think about it overnight)
a 2 br....2 bath.....vinyl sided ranch style house on a postage stamp in an addition for $110,000.00. She saw it and bought it Sunday (her daughters birthday). The only thing that looks like she described style wise is it has a garage. The price is right tho.
Oh, and I had arrainged financing for her based upon $0 down because that is what she had. Mother decided to gift her "a large chunk" to put down.
I hope things go smoothly for her...she's never bought a house before so hopefully the seller knows what he's doing and is honest and fair with her.
as for me.......
