O.K. we are all having way too much fun at Active Rain. It has got to stop!
Being a Realtor is a serious job. There's work to be done so we need to stop playing!
We have 16 days to get those procrastinating first-time buyers into their homes. They ain't going to get it done by themselves are they!
We have to follow up with the short sale agent to whom we submitted an offer 9 months ago to see if they have any news, that is, of course, if we can find them.
We need to find the key that is missing from the lockbox on the REO listing that we have just taken our buyers to. No wait - there's an open window at the back, maybe we can climb in.
Now that we have actually gotten in we need to get out the ouija board to see what magic numbers and conditions will need to be put on the purchase contract that will miraculously hypnotize the bank into accepting our offer over the 36 others they have.
Next we have to run over to our Sellers whose overpriced listing we have been sitting on for the past 5 months to convince them to lower the price by $300,000 so that we can get is sold before our contract expires.
And then we need to convince the buyers who are reading the inspection report on the property they are purchasing - which points out every crack, damp spot, missing electrical plate, and recommends they bring in every kind expert under the sun - that the house is not going to fall down.
And buyer no. 3 needs us to talk to his lender. The appraisal has come in $100,000 below the contracted price, so you try and get hold of the appraiser, but he has just gone back home to Uzbekistan.
You know what, I was wrong. Go play in the Rain. You deserve it!
