Whoot! Whoot! We Closed!

The Years - The Time - All Worth It!  This Short Sale Closed !

After 2 1/2 years and many offers.  Tons of paperwork.  Dealing with 2 banks, it seemed like they were both playing devils advocate, we closed on this 16000 Sq Ft Home.  The buyers were awesome, waiting for over 8 months to close.  The sellers helped work through the sale and never gave up.

We've closed over 300 short sales, none as difficult as this sale.  The home was the largest in size and price we've ever worked.  During the 2 1/2 years, the times showing the home was endless.  We lost track.  The time it took to go through the house was usually 2 hours.  

Our thanks to the title company for keeping the file up to date and to the buyer's lender for closing before the deadlines.  And to the many people that listened to me every time the banks decided to do another appraisal because they took to long to make decisions.

To describe the amount of time it took would take days.  I joked that once we closed this sale, I would retire.  Sorry, that's not happening!  I would miss the challenge of working on other great sales.
