Another Working Holiday Weekend

By
Real Estate Agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate 516-457-7103

buyersThough it wouldn't have been my first choice of time, I had a final walk-through this morning on a listing that will close late in the week.  Normally we do them sometime within 24 to 48 hours before the closing but these buyers requested specifically it be today.  It wouldn't have been bad since it was scheduled for 10 a.m.  Typically they take 15 to 20 minutes and they're done.  Not this one.  I should have known we were in for the long haul when one of their party went out to get coffee.

I had hoped for something of a holiday weekend, some time to go to the pool and to just lounge around reading a good book.  Two hours later, as they finally seemed to be winding down, I got a phone call that sent me off in the direction of another appointment a good twenty minutes away.  Looks like soaking up the sun is not in the cards today.  I so hope it doesn't rain tomorrow.

Have a wonderful 4th of July and keep safe.

The last 15 minute "walk-through" I had like that turned into a two-hour INSPECTION; 'Dad' showed up to help out, and from there it all went down-hill.  Although all repair items had been negotiated and fixed by professionals AND reinspected- TWICE,  'dad' had to make sure everything was good to go.  Dad's a great guy, so we waited patiently while he did his thing- and we went on to close on the best house in the best neighborhood and a very REASONABLE price we could find for his only daughter- all's well!

As they say Steve, all's well that ends well.

Well as a Merrick transplant to San Francisco, I hope your July 4th was a bit warmer than ours here!

Margaret, I believe we had the hottest summer on record here.  It was beastly.  First time I'm happy summer is almost over.  How long have you been in San Francisco?

Russell, Great fireworks pic! I can't recall the last DAY OFF I had. I think it was when I had double pneumonia last year, but I was too sick to care. LOL!

Weekends? What are THOSE? Oh, yeah - open house!
