Maybe it's just a sign of the times.
A condo that I had under agreement became available again yesterday when the "pre-approved" buyer was not able to get financing. With mortgage providers crossing every "t" and dotting every "i," every little blemish (even ancient ones) on a person's credit report must be resolved. The lesson for me from this experience: do not accept a pre-approval letter with any contingencies.
As a result, a nice 2 BR, 2 bath townhouse in Falmouth is once again available. Check it out at www.20bwoodview.com. It would be great as a summer/weekend reteat or as a year-round home, and is convenient to all the Cape amenities as well as off-Cape communtes.
