Bart was a real estate agent, with a heart of gold,
Helping folks find homes, new and old.
He worked with a young couple, for weeks on end,
Showing them houses, again and again.
They found their dream home, and made an offer,
Accepted at less, than what they proffer.
Ecstatic, they told everyone they knew,
But their joy was short-lived, as they soon grew blue.
When they went to get their mortgage, to their surprise,
The rates had gone up, and now it was not wise.
Devastated, embarrassed, and feeling low,
Bob was also frustrated, as he watched the sale go.
He learned as an agent, it's not just about the find,
But also to prepare, for what's on the grind.
To understand the process, and be ready for the road,
So next time, the sale will close, without a heavy load.
