After the sub-prime housing market crash of 2007, selling a home has been a roller coaster ride, alternating between quick and easy sales and homes sitting on the market for months. It’s difficult to predict whether you’ll hit a high or low point when selling, and some people get unlucky.
Peter was one of those people. Peter was about to move and listed his house on the market, but it ended up sitting for a while, among other problems.
He had trouble getting an offer on the house.
He had listed his house during a lull period, and it didn’t seem like anyone wanted to buy. This was a problem for Peter, because he was waiting on selling the house in order to move.
Finally, he received an offer for his house. He began to move all of his belongings into his new home, thinking that the money he would receive from closing would make the final necessary payments. Unfortunately, the buyer pulled out of the deal at the last minute, leaving Peter stuck with a home he didn’t want and a home he couldn’t yet afford.
Then he saw our ad on TV.
He contacted us and explained his situation. He had been attempting to get a VA loan in order to purchase his new house, but the loan never went through because he had to keep switching lenders. Furthermore, he had moved the majority of his belongings to the new house at this point, thinking that the one interested buyer would pull through and close.
After the buyer pulled out of the deal, Peter became too frustrated with the process, and was able to withdraw his listing because he was on at “at-will” basis with the realtor. He showed us the previous listing, and we made his an initial offer over the phone. The next day, we did our home inspection, and made him a firm offer on the spot. A week later, we closed on the property, giving Peter the cash he needed to finally purchase and move into his new home.
