The Buyer who showed up in her Tinkerbell Pajamas! We all know the real estate market is getting a little crazy these days, but when a buyer shows up at escrow to sign closing documents in her pajamas, you know something has really gone haywire!
A certain Grants Pass Oregon real estate agent recently met her client at the Title Company to sign closing docs. The buyer showed up in her pajamas with slippers and all (I'm not making this up!). When the escrow officer asked the buyer if she brought a certified check for closing funds, the buyer said yes but couldn't find the check. After searching for 30 minutes, the buyer called the bank and was informed that it would take a minimum of 3 days to complete a stop-payment on the funds. Mind you, this was already a REALLY difficult real estate transaction and tempers were flaring from on-going problems, delays, etc.
Here's the kicker, while the buyer was on the phone with the bank, a call came into the escrow office from the local Grants Pass, Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Apparently, someone had found the $50,000. certified check and turned it in to the DMV. Oh my... there is a God... and there was a closing!
The picture posted here is a depiction of the pajama buyer (I simply couldn't/wouldn't post a real picture). Of course, no names were mentioned to protect the sleepy, but not so innocent pajama buyer :)
