before thanksgiving

 

Congratulations to Will and Sabrina. We saw only three houses! We were ready to write an offer on the second one, but we were too late. It was under contract.

 

The third one, we were prepared. We viewed the property Friday evening, met with the buyers on Saturday morning to go over the entire forty pages, answer questions and sign. Presented the offer by noon and had an accepted offer by Saturday evening, yes within twenty-four hours from touring to ratification.

Not magic and not luck, this process occurs only with months of planning including

 

-buyer approval,

-a lender letter in hand,

-cooperating agents,

-funds for an earnest deposit check and

-a lender who answers the phone and can get the proper documentation together.

 

contract

 

And now the work begins. I am sending the ratified contract to the lender, scheduling home inspections, termite, survey, buyers choosing the title company and so much more!

Congratulations Will and Sabrina! We met your goals and it appears that Thanksgiving will be celebrated in the new home!

 

Margaret Rome
