I just want to share a little story with you. I have a good friend, we'll call her Connie. Now Connie and her patient husband Juan decided they had to have a particular house in a particular neighborhood in York County in Hampton Roads. This property is a great buy, about $50,000 less than it could have sold for if it wasn't a short sale. So where's the problem?
Now Charlie, the listing agent, sounds like he has it all together. He's in touch with the bank often, things are moving right along, painting us a promising picture. So Connie and Juan do their inspections and appraisal all based on Charlie's confidence that the written short sale approval is going to be here any hour.
That was 2 months ago and poor Connie and Juan are still shacked up living back home with her parents. I can't even tell you the details of what this is doing to their love life (I write a PG rated blog). Their lives are in storage. So when do Connie and Juan cut their losses and move on? Don't know. We need to pray for patience and strength for this couple. Right now Connie doesn't have much hair on her head left.
This story is to be continued...........
