The Story of Closing Another Condo in Woodside Oaks

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

It can be a bit odd to meet a buyer after closing when you're the listing agent. Especially after having to serve the buyer with the seller's Notice to Buyer to Perform during escrow. An agent never knows for certain whether the buyer might accidentally turn on the garden hose and point it in the wrong direction.

But I got to meet the buyer of this condo in person yesterday when I went over to pick up my lockboxes. Nice person. She wondered how to get the remote for the gate. Well, the seller doesn't have a remote, LOL. She must have used somebody else's gate code. You'd think the buyer would have known this prior to closing since "no gate remote" was in the disclosures. 

The HOA charges $50 for a new remote but at least you can program your own gate code for your guests. You can read more in my personal blog today, including details of the strange Sacramento County Notice tacked to the front door at this link: Closed Another Woodside Oaks Condo in Alicante Villas.

Elizabeth- whew! This is exactly why sellers need to go with a good, experienced listing agent who knows what she's doing. I'm glad you take the attitude of letting a seller list when they're ready. Years ago I was on a consultation with a listing agent. In my opinion, she'd pushed the seller into listing when they weren't fact, they weren't even in town.

Kathy Streib Always, the seller's time schedule is my time schedule. I don't care if I sell a home this year or next year as long as I remain the agent who will sell it. :)
