They're Homeless, And It's All Our Fault!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 www.LizTour.com SAL.2002007747

We caused a young couple with a toddler to become homeless at approximately 6:15 tonight!  We're to blame, it's our fault!  We watched them sign the last piece of paperwork to end their home ownership, but we did NOTHING to stop them.  6289 Maple Grove Morrow Ohio Sold by Liz Spear of RE/MAX Elite

In fact, we were doing a Happy Dance inside, and so were they!  Today was the day we closed the sale of their home at 6289 Maple Grove in Morrow, Ohio!  We performed as promised, found them a buyer willing to pay the price they wanted, so Megan, Anthony and little Wyatt no longer own a home.


They've achieved their goal, ground breaking on their new construction home starts this week, and their work commute will be cut from 45 minutes each way to less than 15 and removing tons of stress from their lives!  And a donation gets made to Children's Miracle Network in their name!  It's a Win-Win for everyone!

If you'd like our help in making you homeless too, just contact The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite!

There is enough of a homeless problem without you contributing to it.  But in this case, I will let it pass.

Being homeless paid off for everyone involved and a charitable contribution to boot.

Charita, All our closings get a $25 donation to CMN.  We know that's not a huge amount, but we do quite a bit more charitable giving elsewhere between our church, United Way and other activities.

Liz I have been considering doing the same thing.  Just trying to decide how I want to implement it.

Charita, At RE/MAX, they make it part of the closing process for when they process your commission check.  You can check Yes or No to the donation and they take care of the rest.

But it would be fairly easy for you to either a) pick the charity of your choice, or b) let the clients pick either totally on their own or from an "approved" menu so you don't have to worry about donating to something that doesn't align with your personal beliefs.

I always joke --- homeless should not be a voabulary word in our business, but sometimes it IS!   Good job!

Joan,

They're not truly homeless in the short term.  They've got a rent back for the next 30 days, then relatives until the new build is complete.

Deanne, It's something Liz has done since she started.  RE/MAX promotes CMN both via emails and at the conventions every year.

Congratulations on the sale.  I think many people are becoming more reasonable in their choices - size of home, cost, commute, etc. - just like this couple!

Shelley, There's got to be some balance.  When I read about the long commutes some of the Coasters do, just can't comprehend it.  It's 20 minutes to my day job and slightly longer home.

Great post, as usual.  I applaud you on your donations to CMN; we were staunch supportors of them as well and have some pretty great memorabilia we "won" in a CMN auction at Convention.  You guys are the best!
