December Challenge: Your Craziest Transaction

Enter the December Challenge!

What a fun contest! Many transactions are strange, challenging, and crazy! I am so looking forward to the creativity of the AR members and the craziest entries.

The challenge will be picking just one insane story. Please take time to enter this contest hosted by Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, GRI, WLS  and Carol Williams 

Real Estate stories are so much better than most of us could ever make up!  

December is a busy month. The sooner you start, the sooner we can enjoy your story!

"Truth is stranger than fiction."

Here we are in December again.  Are you ready for another fun ActiveRain Challenge?

What could be more challenging and fun than planning for, dealing with, and surviving the holiday season?  Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, GRI, WLS and I thought what better subject to write about for our December Challenge than a transaction that dealt you the most fun, the most challenge OR the one you barely survived to tell about?   However it went down, hopefully, you ended up with the gift of a closing check.


We've all had them.  We've had the transactions we loved, and the transactions we've struggled with every step of the way and barely survived.  Just choose one to tell us about that ended with the gift of a closing check.

BUT... here's the twist... you can tell us a true story, a totally made-up story, or a combination of both.  You decide.  It will be up to your readers to submit their vote to determine whether they think your story is True or Fake. We've all heard the saying: Truth is stranger than fiction, so be careful when you vote on other entries. 

Here are the easy peasy guidelines you must follow to qualify for the 1500 bonus points for your entry:
  * 250 words in your post
  * At least 1 graphic
  * Post a link to your entry into the comments section of this blog post 

The Challenge begins on December 1st and ends on December 31st.


Whatever you write about, have fun with it. And, don't forget to read the other entries, make your comments and vote "True" or "Fake."

Morning Margaret.

Like I told Carol Williams my imagination has it limits.  Now, if we were talking about people we've dealt with, well that is another matter

This is something I'll really need to think about, Margaret. After 26 years I'm scratching my head and right now can't think of any transactions that would qualify as "crazy." Then again, maybe I need to change my definition of crazy.

James Dray I could see you combining some of the people from your past and making a good story relating it to RE. With this contest, it can be fiction. Just have some fun and we will look forward to reading it!

I have far too many outrageous transaction stories in my memory to not share at least one in this challenge.
