Special offer

Selling(?) in Surprise, Arizona

Real Estate Agent with Realty ONE Group

Oh Lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz......

I don't know why but everytime I'm frustrated I always think of this famous song from Janis Joplin.  But I digress...I  have been trying for a month now to help two clients buy homes in Surprise.  Now mind you I don't mind working hard for my clients in order to earn my "honest wage".  However, these days it is an exercise in futility to try to get a financed client a home.  A lot of the bank owned properties require that you run their buyer through XYZ lender, upload your offer through a specific website, sign all kinds of extra paperwork w/information on your buyer that you would not normally disclose and then wait and wait and wait.  Then after a week to 10 days of waiting you find out that your buyer who already went well over list has lost out to another CASH buyer who went even more over list...

I've written 5 times for this one buyer who is well qualified w/800 FICO's and 20% down.  Help me!  I'm beginning to feel like an inadequate agent!  I'm at the end of my rope...any suggestions out there?

So I end with my song. 

Oh Lord won't you buy me a Mercedez Benz, my friends all drive Porsches I must make amends....
