I know it’s a short sale but…….

I just took my buyers into a home….I called the listing agent and she informed me that the seller was taking the dishwasher…..I know they do sometimes but when you see it there you expect it to be there…..I suggested that she had better put that it excludes the dishwasher since most people would expect it stay since it was there….I talked about agents who had to supply appliances…  I suggested that she excludes the dishawasher…Oh well we want to see the home…..I should have been suspicious when the pictures were from the last sale 1.5 years ago….


We walked in and the house reeked of cat urine….There was also some cat poop right in the living room….The house was absoultely filthy….The cat itself was adorable but obviously not well behaved…They had a sex book out on a dresser or table… Basically the home was in not at all showable condition.  Now the seller is moving by Dec. 1….It makes me wonder why the listing agent didn’t wait until they left and did the rugs….The price was OK but not great….The house itself might be OK but my buyers were grossed out…


Remember first impression mean a lot in our business.  This house was as bad as any rental I have seen when the tenant is being obnoxious.  I don’t gross out easily but I was disturbed…Guess which house we didn’t write an offer on?

The Rose Bushes are missing….

This Sunday while I had 20 guests at my house my HUD buyer called me. Apparently all the shrubery was clearcut on 2 sides of the home (including the heritage rose bushes)

As soon as my guests left I went to the listing and sure enough there was no shubbery and there was no branches on the ground. I called the listing agent who sent an email to the assest manager on Sunday. On Monday I called the property manager. At first they said they would check into it. Then I called the asset manager who said they had nothing to do with it. I then became worried they would take the rest of the shubs out. I called property manager who said the asset manager requested that the bushes be trimmed…..

I pointed out the bushes were gone not trimmed and would they please not trim anymore bushes. We are closing the deal on July 21…..Now they could have gone for the debree field or the cheat grass meadow but those items are still there. It sure would be nice if the property manager was in Boise instead of Phonix….

Tomorrow we sign and Thursday we close…. Just needed to vent a little.
