I believe myself to be very understanding and trustworthy to most everyone I meet, until it is trampled on. People that know me tell me time and time again that I am one of the most empathetic people they know. I only tell you this to share this latest story; Short Sale, Divorcing couple of which the wife has moved out and on with her life as the husband, still in the home, does nothing but feel sorry for himself. Okay I know we've seen this scenario more than once but let me continue.
In negotiation of the second of two loans the countered back for more money than was offered from the first. The listing agent's team was able to get the second to take less requiring the owners (shorting the banks approximately $316K) to come in with $3K the wife immediately agreed and the husband cried poverty. We had viewed this home several times and in the home he has more toys than F.A.O. Schwartz, from weight sets and golf clubs to R.V.'s and dirt bikes. Can you believe, he suggested maybe we, the Realtors, could help out! AARRGGHH!@#$, can you hear that..... I'm being trampled on, loud and clear now. The listing agent stepped in and took care of it on his end, probably got a great deal on a dirt bike or something.....whatever.
Now because the first lender waited so long for the second negotiations they now wanted to close sooner than 30 days and vowed no extensions will be given, our lender says no problem we can make it happen. Now we get to the part that just leaves me F U R I O U S , the husband, still feeling sorry for himself request a rent back for 1 week because he has no time to get out. Excuse me he hasn't paid the mortgage in 11 months and still hasn't found a place? And HELLO you can't find the money to contribute to the lenders but want us to trust you to pay a rent back, and not destroy the house in the meantime?
What planet are some people from? These people are breathing the same air that we do but somehow are in a perpetual self centered Utopian state and I just don't get it.
