Buyers Happy To Be At Closing

 

 

Rain slowed it up but did not stop us!

It was another smooth settlement but not one without a few bumps or should I say puddles.

I really loved working with this buyer. He always responded, followed through with any and all requests and was more than patient when the planned settlement date had to be moved forward an extra two weeks. 

 

Buying a home can and is stressful but couple that with a full-time job and an illness in the family and you have the perfect climate for major stress.

 

This buyer, even under pressure, always was a pleasure to work with. He had not been aware of the various steps needed to make a purchase...including but not limited to the 40 page contract, the home inspection, the loan process, scheduling  movers, re inspection, increase in the tax assessment shortly before the closing, walk thru that he couldn't attend and the consequences of changing the date.   

The main delay was one that could not have been prevented.

It was the weather (continual rain or liquid sunshine) that would not allow a new roof to be installed.

The wait was worth it and this young man has his parents moving into the perfect right sized home.

Patience is needed, and I'm sure your education and calmness helped the buyer stay calm. Forces of nature we can't change!

Lottie Kendall It does take a lot of patience and calmness to get through the buying/selling process. It is all worth it for a smooth settlement.

I am glad they could finally install the roof. You are lucky these buyers are the patient type. Congratulations on the sale.

I'm envious of your rain, Margaret.  Our numerous wildfires here in California could certainly benefit from it.  Congratulations on the sale!
