One of my “senior” clients lost her home to foreclosure on Monday – due to an unrealistic expectation of the second lender. At some point in the earlier short sale process, the first became aware of my cell phone number as her primary contact number. The hard-of-hearing seller wanted to insure that she understood everything that might be presented to her. The bank took back her property at noon on Monday. She is now and has been prepared for this event – and is looking forward to moving forward with her life ….
To date, at this late afternoon writing, she has received 16 calls … one for cash-for-keys and 15 others from various law firms, save-your-home agencies and sundry companies offering her a way to “remain in your home.” If I did not answer the call, they left voice mail messages including this one:
“If you didn’t know, your house was sold at auction this afternoon. The Bank that now owns your home does not want you to call us, because we guarantee that we can keep you in your home. Call now for details ….”
OK, while there may still be viable options for the former owner …. a voice mail message of that character …. seems … well … just wrong!
