Delightful Clients Close on a Perfect Home
Things just have a way of working out. That was the case with these clients. Originally desiring to stay around the Windward area in order to keep the kids in the same school, but nothing seemed to work. So the search was expanded a little to take in areas slightly south and west of Windward.
Our search quickly gravitated to new construction. Unfortunately, this occurred at a time when resale inventory was diminished, and although building permits were up, there still was not a lot to choose from. Builders knew this and were not willing to adjust their prices to where my clients wanted to be.
During the early stages of our search we had looked at a home west of 400, in the 30004 area of Alpharetta. Unfortunately, we were early in our search and although one of the homes we viewed was perfect, my clients were just not at a point where they were ready to decide on a home. Shortly after we looked at it, it went under contract and it went off of our radar.
Then one morning I received a message from the listing agent indicating that the contract had terminated due to the buyers’ Contingency Property not being sold. I notified my clients and we planned on going back out later in the week after they returned from a business trip. Upon his return, we revisited the home and as we were preparing to make an offer were notified that it had gone back under contract with the same buyer. They had received three offers on their home in the last two days. Can you say ROLLER COASTER?
Needless to say, we were all a little disappointed and just decided to rest a week before looking again. And wouldn’t you know it, we received another call from the listing agent indicated that the buyer for the home my clients were interested in could not qualify for a loan. We decided to act quickly, but we first wanted to get a copy of the Termination and Release from the current buyer. We received that the next day and since I had already done my analysis we were ready to make our offer. Once submitted we arrived at an agreement fairly quickly. The ROLLER COASTER ride was over.
From that time to the closing things went smoothly. Inspections, appraisal, and other contingencies were handled with ease. In the end, our clients really got the home they wanted from the very beginning.
I guess if 50% of Life was not IF it may have been different.
