Real Estate Agent with Frank Rubi Real Estate

Several of my blogs over the last month have been about one house and the buyer.  Man, what a fiasco this one has been.

This mess started after the appraisal didn't come in at the contract price.  Well after I thought the deal was dead the seller caved.  Great I still have a deal going.  We do a final walk thru and behold things are missing.  The surround sound speakers are gone and the curtains are gone.  Well these things were in the contract that he signed.  I find out from the agent that a faxed copy of the contract was signed and you really couldn't read it.  Well guess what, he is still responsible. Also seems the listing agent didn't read the contract to him either.  Well we are supposed to close tomorrow the listing agent has power of attorney.  My buyer doesn't like the agent and I hope he keeps quiet.  Maybe I need some pepper spray or something like that. I will update you guys tomorrow.  I think I need a drink

I'm betting closing goes well. Just in case, take along gift certs for Circuit City and J. C. Penney.

I like Fran's idea!!!  Circuit City, Conn's or Best Buy and a J.C. Penney, Bed Bath & Beyond or Linens N Things Gift Certificates might help this one close!!!

Good Luck!

John, good luck this afternoon. Let's get all the bad ones out of the way. This was a nice convert. Keep in mind that you took the buyer from one part of town to about 1 hour drive away. This was a call off a sign. This is hard for even the more experience agents to do more or less a brand new agent. Your doing great, two listing and a third to sign on Saturday and dont forget you bought your first rental property the second of July. WOW your hot.... This one is just a learning deal. Don't sweat it. Just like AR enjoy the ride.

Good Luck John,

This may still hold together, but don't sweat it. Just do your best and treat everyone right and you will prevail.
