Fred and Ethel…the BNI Whales are just finishing up their week with RE/MAX. They aren’t quite ready to take on the blue R but they are close! Most of the day was not very exciting for them with price changes, property inspection reports, client files and short sale updating with the lenders. They declined pictures for the most part. I think Ethel is getting camera-shy.
They spent some time with some new buyers looking at foreclosure condos in Marlborough and Grafton. They had a good time and it was nice to get to know some new people. Dan and Dan are just starting out with their search and we looked a few different areas so they could start to get a feel for what was available in their price range. Time well spent!
We did walk into a foreclosure on Hosmer Street. The complex is undergoing renovations but has been hit hard with short sales and foreclosures which makes it difficult for the association to maintain their budget. There is a 2 bedroom unit that I had shown when it was short sale and I’m not sure how we crossed paths but I found my business card on their living floor amiss the belongings they did not have time to take when they were foreclosed on. I wish they would have reached out – I might have been able to sell the condo short instead of them having to endure a foreclosure. It’s a huge difference – a short sale affects their credit for a much shorter time and future employers don’t ask if someone has short saled…but they do ask if they have had a foreclosure. Sad.
The BNI Whales moved past this moment and marched on to an appointment with their new clients in Marlborough. Fred and Ethel helped list their condo on Friday and we received a full price offer on Sunday which we officially accepted this evening! They are SO EXCITED!!! We also signed their offer to purchase a new house in Southborough! YAY!!! Fingers and fins are crossed for them!
This is was the last day I will spend with the BNI Whales until the next time I win them. I hope that they enjoyed it as much as I did! I also hope that you reach out to find out more about the 7 Hills BNI Group! We do need more members and it has been a fantastic group to be a part of! If you want to be more successful in your business…it’s the place to be!
