Water Heater got stolen from a 2nd story unit...What is this world coming to???

Services for Real Estate Pros with C21 Aadvantage Gold - Short Sales & Forclosures

I have listed a condo having a heater unit located in a room off of the back porch on the 2nd floor of the building.  The room was locked, but it is obvious that some Realtor who was showing the property had left that room unlocked, so thieves had gotten into the room.  For someone to take the heater, it would take some effort because they have to take it down through the back porch. 

We are already on escrow with the buyer on this condo and I just got a call from the selling agent asking me if the seller was going to put in a new unit because there is no heater.  I thought she was asking if the heater was going to be replaced.  I told her that the heater is a brand new (6 months old) top of the line heater that was replaced after the heater leaked...as stated on the MLS.  She said, No, there is no heater in the unit.  What?!!!  Unbelievable!  So, now the buyer might back out of this property. 

Don't people have conscience left anymore? What is this world coming to?  People do not co-exist anymore..they just want to survive and if it meant stealing from others, they will.  Where are their morals?!!!

Thieves never cease to amaze.  Of course, their actions just cause more problems for everyone else.

I hope that it was worth it for them. If the lender will not pay for the replacement, we might lose the buyers.

I heard Vegas was pretty intense with that kind of thing.  The buyer should walk.  Just replace it, they aren't that expensive and could salvage the deal!
