The Buyer who showed up in her Pajamas!

The Buyer who showed up in her Tinkerbell Pajamas!  We all know the real estate market is getting a little crazy these days, but when a buyer shows up at escrow to sign closing documents in her pajamas, you know something has really gone haywire!

A certain Grants Pass Oregon real estate agent recently met her client at the Title Company to sign closing docs.  The buyer showed up in her pajamas with slippers and all (I'm not making this up!).  When the escrow officer asked the buyer if she brought a certified check for closing funds, the buyer said yes but couldn't find the check.  After searching for 30 minutes, the buyer called the bank and was informed that it would take a minimum of 3 days to complete a stop-payment on the funds.  Mind you, this was already a REALLY difficult real estate transaction and tempers were flaring from on-going problems, delays, etc. 

Here's the kicker, while the buyer was on the phone with the bank, a call came into the escrow office from the local Grants Pass, Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  Apparently, someone had found the $50,000. certified check and turned it in to the DMV.  Oh my... there is a God... and there was a closing!

The picture posted here is a depiction of the pajama buyer (I simply couldn't/wouldn't post a real picture).  Of course, no names were mentioned to protect the sleepy, but not so innocent pajama buyer :)

Melinda - I had a similar situation last year when a mobile notary showed up at my clients home at 8am on a Saturday morning (their appt was for 10am),  The notary told my client that she had a personal matter come up and that she would not be available at 10am, which was fine with my client but he would have appreciated 15minutes notice so he could at least get dressed instead of just showing up and waking him up.  While he wasn't wearing tinkerbell jammies, he most certainly wasn't in his most presentable jammies and he had some serious bed head and morning breath.

Pajamas?  That's hilarious.  Thankfully someone turned in that check.  It's nice to know that there are honest people around.

I'm less floored about the pajamas than the return of the check.  One things for sure - You'll always remember that closing.

Oh Melinda- I am guilty.  I've never attending a closing in my PJ's, but I have run to the corner store in the rural area I live.  And I have stopped at the drug store on the way home from the hospital in my PJs too.  And I must admit I've run up to my office in the evenings in them as well.  Guilty!
