Stick and Stay...

Stick and Stay is bound to pay.

That was my dad's motto when playing poker so many years ago.  While not always the best strategy, it does have some merit to it.

Late Friday, I finally heard back from a Bank on a short sale Purchase Agreement that was sent to them on 4-3-2012.  Yea, we just heard.

This person is the 4th person to have this file in 9 months I have been working with the seller.

This person is the first to call and say got it, and I am sending you what else I need.  The buyers are still hanging in there. 

I wonder if they had heard of my dad's saying before?

William - I hear what you're saying.  It's too bad the system is being run so poorly.  Good luck on getting this one closed!

Short sales are not the same - I had one where I was the listing agent, got it through in 3 weeks. Then I have had another that is taking months! Unreal.

I shudder everytime I hear the term Short Sale.  Makes me want to run!

I am glad I am not selling today.  The stories I have heard just make me cringe

Sometime because of the time already put in all you can do is wait it out,
