Hello, thanks for tuning into Red Lion Realty’s YouTube channel, if you would, please like and subscribe. Today’s topic of discussion is going to be 10 of the craziest things that I’ve seen in real estate. We’re going to count down from 10 to one and I’m also going to get the solutions for the problems that we encountered. Number 10. I represented a set of sellers and I received an offer from a buyer’s agent that did not have the dollar amount on the offer. Solution, I reached out to the buyer’s agent advised them to get with their broker to structure a proper offer. We ended up closing on the property with them as well. Number nine, I went on a listing appointment that was so infested with bugs it looked like the walls were moving. I reached out to the sellers, let them know what shape the property was in, we ended up marketing the property without pictures and selling it for an investment opportunity only. We did get the property sold. Number eight, I had a family in foreclosure as well as going through a divorce. I was representing selling their property, it did have a lot of equity in it, a couple days before closing, one of the spouses went MIA. We ended up getting with the judge, we ended up getting a receivership appointment. We did get the property sold, and we did get the equity in escrow for them. The next one, number six, I represented a landlord where a tenant had paid the deposit, as well as paying the first month’s rent, and then decided they didn’t want to live there 30 days later. I got with the landlord, the landlord worked it out with them, and ended up releasing them out of the lease. Number five. I had a spouse that was washed out to sea when the tsunami hit in Phuket. The other spouse connected with me. We got with title, we structured out how we can get this done, 90 days later, we got property marketed. We also got it sold for a couple $1,000 over asking price. Number four. I was a buyer’s agent, representing a set of buyers, we walked into a property, we started touring it, we got into the living room and bear in mind this property’s empty, but both the buyers and I stopped, looked at one another said hey, it feels like there’s somebody in here. And then we just left. It was very eerie, very creepy. Number three. I had a buyer that wanted to offer $100,000 less than every property was advertised for. I told him I would work through it on one property, after that he had to be within $5000 to $10,000 of asking price. We have a $400,000 property, I submitted the offer for 300 grand, the listing agent was very gracious. Their response was, if your buyer wants a $300,000 property I advise that you show them $300,000 properties. It ended up I couldn’t service the client at the level they were looking for and we went separate ways. Number two, I went to a showing, this house had aluminum siding but when I got there, it didn’t have aluminum siding. Somebody had stolen, all the aluminum siding off of the home itself, and all the copper wiring, out of the house as well. I called the listing agent immediately and advised them to get somebody out there as soon as possible. Number one, I represented a seller. We closed, I got a phone call from the lender, they sent the wire it had funded. Couple hours later I’m driving to title to pick up my paycheck. The lender call or the title company calls me and informs me that the lender retracted the wire. After I peeled my seller off of the ceiling, we worked through it, we get the property closed 10 days later, and everybody was happy. Well I hope you enjoyed some of these stories.
