Toe Tag, The White Sheet Pulled Up And Over A ME Real Estate Deal.

Most movies have happy endings. In real estate sales, not every property listing gets to the closing table.

Life happens along the way. Pink slips from employers, too low credit scores and too high debt ratios combine to make real estate sales go south. To not even get off the ground. Death, disease, divorce can make a ME real estate deal go sideways too. When they occur right on schedule between the wanna buy, shoulda closed two step.maine lake property photo

The appraised value on a real estate  sale coming in too low.

Of a property listing greased and on the skids ready to roll that does not get off the launch pad happens too.

The list of fix this, replace that can be just too long.

Too heavy to keep the real estate property sale afloat.

And all the extra doodads adding onto the heavy drag down pressure of too many real estate sale contingencies.

Can suddenly pull the real estate property listing sale under water. To sink to the bottom in a deep trail of air bubbles and not good gurgling sounds.

So no matter how much attention given to the real estate deal from listing to the clear to close memo to sit down to pass the house keys please. It happens. Property sales can die on the operating table despite all the efforts of many to keep them alive and kicking.

But by far the most important two things to remember to give the property listing for sale a fighting chance to get to the closing on time or at all.

Priced right, marketed full throttle marketing works best in getting real estate listings for sale to the property closing on time, in one piece.

Good morning, Andrew Mooers there's a laundry list of reasons the property may not close....time, however, is always of the essence, for many reasons....

Good morning Andy. On the mortgage side, the two biggest areas for transactions not happening are home inspection issues, the other is appraisal issues.

Make it a great week!

Conrad Allen ... Price so high it would never sell in the best of markets. Don't take over priced listings. You are helping the seller setting expectations of market value and what is pie in the sky.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson ... The old "We had a house in your price range last week... but it fell down."

Barbara Todaro ... Timings times three is more important than just the three "L"'s of location.

Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI ... (Turning ten shades of red, eyes down, toe in sand going back and forth aimlessly) Awwwww gee. I bet you say that to all the real estate agents, brokers, REALTORS! Thanks!

Joe Petrowsky ... Issues. Drama added to the ins and outs because layers of players, lots of people cooking it up in the kitchen. A good banker, an on the ball agent, lawyer, all the corners covered in the real estate tic tac dough.

Excellent post Andrew.  The public just doesn't understand the efforts that Realtors go through to keep some transactions stay afloat.
