I have already done my three entries for this month's challenge, but was reading another post for the challenge, and reminded me of a funny situation. Well, it wasn't funny at the time, but it sure is now!
I had the Seller, and the transaction, as I can remember was uneventful all the way to the closing table. In Colorado, if possible, Buyer and Seller sit at the closing table together. This didn't happen during COVID but has again regained popularity. Buyers want to meet the Sellers, and the Sellers want to know who is moving into their home. (IF the transaction has gone well)
All were sitting at the table, the escrow agent was getting signatures, and the Seller was finished with their few pages to sign, and sitting back relaxing. The Buyers then had to sign the "alias" page, and the husband looked over and asked when she had THAT last name. W E L L, it was in my first marriage...... OOPS, guess she never disclosed she was married the first time, and the Buyers then stepped out of the closing room to have a heated discussion. You could hear them from the hall. My Seller asked --- do you think they will return and close?
They did return and close, but the rest of the closing was a bit "icy" in the room. The buyers did not hang out after the closing was finished, as I think they were both very embarrassed.
Now every time that page is signed, I always think of this day....and how it could have gone a whole different direction!
