You've got to be freakin kidding me!!!!!!
Our mortgage company has turned down our short sale.
YES! Turned down a legit buyer with cash in hand, and no contingencies. After the agent AND the appraiser agreed it was a great price given the current value of homes in our area.
Here's the kicker - it's all because a local real estate agent told them she thinks she can sell it for $40G's more. Yes, that would be the extra $40G's we offered them LAST FREAKING YEAR!
This agent either:
1. smokes more crack than an LA pimp.
2. has a buyer interested, and wants the whole commission to herself.
3. or stands to make more money selling a foreclosure.
Either way, how completely unethical to trash a local family's credit for a few thousand dollars. And she WON'T sell it for more. All the homes surrounding this one are going for less or sitting empty, and winter is coming on.
Should I give you the name, phone number, and email of the snake?
