Bank Sale Gone RIGHT!

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty, LLC 527179

I have to share this story because so many BANK SALES and SHORT SALES are so AWFUL I wanted to share the GOOD NEWS! I have been working with these wonderful buyers for almost a year, Jayne and Steve.  Jayne and Steve sold their home last summer and moved into a rental home while searching for their "perfect" home.  It was a long journey, we searched and searched for the right home at the right price.  We would find a home that was just right for Jayne but not so much for Steve and vice versa until one day about 30 days ago when we found the "perfect" home!!!  This home made Jayne and Steve SMILE!  It was a bank owned home.  It had no flooring, only sub flooring. It had no appliances. It wasn't so clean but otherwise nice and had everything the buyers were looking for!  We prepared the offer and presented it to the sellers agent, the seller responded the NEXT DAY!!  We went back to the house a few days later for inspections and we were SURPRISED when we go there......the house had new carpet, fresh paint, some new appliances and word that the other two were coming and the house was CLEAN!!  Yes, the bank did all this!!!  Less than 30 days later we went to settlement and everything went perfectly!!  The sellers agent was wonderful!  The buyers were so happy!  (she was dancing, that is how happy she was!!)  It was a great experience!!  Wishing everyone successful bank sales and short sales :)

This is a rare event.  Most are nightmares.

This was a Fannie Mae bank sale too and it really helped that the sellers agent was quick at responding and easy to work with.

Cynthia ~ it is so nice to hear that not ALL short sales or foreclosures are a nightmare.  I'm sure those buyers were ecstatic to have You as their agent!
