Waiting is the hard part

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices | Pen Fed Realty 3107554

Hi All,

Okay, here I sit waiting for a response to an offer that I submitted on behalf of my buyers.  It expires at 6 p.m. which is only 28 more minutes. 

The agent told me he was presenting it at 5 p.m. this evening.  It is the waiting that is the difficult part, don't you agree?  I am nervous as the buyers are.  They really want this home. 

I am hopeful I will have good news to deliver to the buyers this evening.

Waiting . . . . . . . . . . . .

Kelly,  Your buyers wouldn't really walk away if the 6 PM time frame wasn't met, would they? I do believe in putting in these time frames but they are a bit of a paper tiger.

Hi Richard,

Well, it is 5:49 p.m. here.  With 11 minutes to spare the listing agent just called.  We have a contract!  I am calling my clients now.

Thank you for your comment.

Hey Marc,

My clients were certainly feeling a lot more than I was.  They have been wonderful to work with and so very loyal to me.  Great couple.  We almost have it bound now.  It will be a wonderful 2nd home for this family and their four boys.  Super people and I am most happy for them.  It is all about the client in my book.  Never about me, I guess I just get nervous with them -- not for them.  I have already made myself a part of this family.  We will be friends for a long time to come and that is what I love best about this business.

Thanks for the comment.  Hope you are doing well.

I just realized your photo. It reminds me of Get Smart and him talking into his shoe phone. I like the conch phone better, very catchy!!!!

I have no patience to wait, but over time I have learned to be calm. I still don't like the chess game, always strategy's to get a deal done.

This is to Richard.  The agent called at five till 6 p.m.  The expiration was 6 p.m.  It was worth the wait.  We are under contract, but why the game?  I hate it too.  Silly really when we are dealing with major investments and emotions of others.  Just glad it all worked out.

To Jim Crawford,

Looks like an easy one.  No major complications that I can foresee.  Closing is December 19th, just in time for Christmas.  Thank you.
