That’s how many separate properties we have made offers on over the last 18 months.
How many of those houses did we get? None.
We are back offering on the little cabin in the woods. Again. Third time. 4th Realtor. New price. Bank owned.
Let me sum it up – we are offering the price at which the bank has listed the property. You would think this is a straight forward proposition. But, as with all banks, nothing happens fast. It takes them two weeks to post a check! In the electronic age I expect things to move a little faster, but it seems like most bankers can’t find their asses with both hands and a flashlight when it comes to real estate.
You may recall the last go round with the little cabin in the woods. It was still a short sale then. or the first series of offers we made. Our first offer was 60K MORE than the list price is now. Yep. Banks are dumb. Whatever bank this is has screwed it’s investors out of even MORE money by being unable to accomplish either short sales – and we weren’t the only ones bidding.
But, I digress. The offer is out there and we are waiting. Waiting. Waiting….
If we don’t get a house this time – I quit. My stuff is coming out of storage and I’m getting my waffle iron and my tube pan and I’m going HOME. I am just meant to be in the house where I already am and live there.
