A Welcome Closing

A Welcome Closing

On April 21, 2012 I listed a short sale in Randallstown.  The situation was not unlike many others who have been in the position of having to short sale their home.  This couple had tried everything to stay in their home, first she had been laid off her job, and she had gone back, then he got laid off and it went back and forth like this.  

The house was a 4 bedroom split foyer with an attached garage.  The yard was beautifully landscaped and the inside was spotless.  

We immediately secured a buyer, then the short sale process started.  The buyer got tired of waiting and walked so we put the house back on the market and got multiple offers, my sellers accepted an offer and started over again.  The buyer lost their job.  They happened again with the next buyer.  Then they accepted a cash offer from an investor and the bank took too long to process the short sale, we went through another round of multiple offers and accepted an offer.  We got to the week before settlement and the buyer had several large undocumented cash deposits in their bank account so the lender denied their loan.  Finally, today we went to settlement - 2 1/2 years later.

Congratulations Derrick and Deanna, I wish you every success in the next leg of your journey.   

Thanks to Carolyn and her short sale negotiating team at Henault and Sysko for tirelessly following through on this file and helping us get this home sold.
