Here is a Cancellation to Welcome Home Sacramento

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

When we first received an offer from the buyer's agent on a particular listing, it was received two weeks after the agent showed the home. He apologized for the late delivery of the offer. Which seemed very strange. No other explanation. It was also a financed offer with a 21-day close. Did not seem real, but since the paperwork checked out and we had no other list-price offers like this one, we accepted it.

Of course, we had to issue a counter offer to fix all of the mistakes and oversights in the offer but that's par for the course for a listing agent in Sacramento real estate. You would be amazed at how many agents cannot write a clean offer. But I was not expecting to receive a cancellation at 10 PM, the minute I landed from Hawaii in Sacramento.

Hi Elizabeth... not a great "welcome home," for sure. Can't say I've experienced the same level of cancellations you have in Sacramento. In recent years, only two. In one case, the buyer found out 9 days after the contract was written that his company was closing their office and laying everyone off. No job, no loan. We resold the house in 24 hours at more money. In another case, buyer got cold feet after after a bad inspection where the seller was the victim of an over-zealous inspector according to the structural engineer we called in to verify. Both agents notified me by phone first.  But the second one would not discuss with her buyers that a structural inspection showed nothing wrong. We resold that house, as well, and for more money.

Hi Elizabeth= why is it that these things always happen just as you arrive home after a trip or vacation?  What do you think the reasons are for the cancellations???
