Kenneth City sale teaches patience

Notes from Rob:

HooperAn agent in Tampa called the Simms Team a few months ago asking for some help.  A friend of hers was looking for a house in our city.  She had an agent, but was not happy with her and wondered if we could talk to her.  After having a nice conversation with her, I set out to help her find a house in Kenneth City so that she could live near her grandson.  Found one, but it was under contract by the time we made our offer.  So we kept looking, and then we found the perfect house, right where she wanted to live.  It was a house full of love.  The seller had lived there for over 40 years and had raised her family there.  But now she was moving in with her daughter and son-in-law (three houses away) and was hoping to find the right person for her home.  It was a match made in heaven.  We made it through all of the inspection issues and were sailing through everything until the week of closing.  Then, as with so many closings these days, issues from the bank came up and had to be corrected.  Closing slipped from Monday to Wednesday, then to Thursday.  As we drove to the closing, I received a call from the lender to say the closing would not happen due to some missing tax paperwork.  My buyer was heart broken.  We let everyone know and went back to the the office.  I didn’t know how long this would take, but the next morning at 11 I received a call from the lender saying we would close at 4 that afternoon.  I crossed my fingers and prayed.  Everyone was at the title company on time, and by 5:30 the deal was done.  My thanks to everyone involved for staying with it until we could make it happen.  My client left a very happy woman, with the keys to her new house.
