Charming bungalow in Uptown sold to happy buyers


Notes from Rob:

Rob’s Sale #16 for the year – Uptown neighborhood of St. Petersburg.

The Simms Team received a call in May from a couple in Tampa looking for a house in St Petersburg.  For what they wanted, it looked like we would be playing the short sale game.  By the begining of June, we found the house and made our offer.  Believe it or not, we faced multiple bids, but ours came out on top.  Then the waiting game began.  By the end of September we had heard from the bank and they had agreed to our office.  Then came all of the lender issues.  The lender was  Bank of America that we had used many times before, but this time everything became an issue.  After the appraisal, we had the list of items that needed to be repaired before closing…of course they told us this one week prior to closing, so it was a rush to get everything repaired, and reinspected by the appraiser.  My clients were anxious and wanted to move in already.  Finally, everything came together and we were able to get the sale completed.  The work involved these days from contract to closing is unbelievable.  I was talking to another agent this morning –   she put a house under contract yesterday with a scheduled closing of December 21st, with FHA financing.  I wish her luck, as I would be skeptical of having an FHA loan go through  in less than three weeks during the Christmas season.   I’ll be watching to see what happens.
