Even The Kitchen Sink!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Woodland Schmidt

I was on Floor and got a call to show an REO that needed a lot of work. Someone had taken the kitchen cabinets and sink. It was listed at $19,900. and he told me there were already some offers on it. (It's in a small town where everyone knows everyone) We showed it, wrote an offer and got it accepted.  The next day a neighbor called to ask if he wanted to buy the kitchen cabinets and sink! She wanted to buy the house so had broke in and stole the kitchen!

He informed her that he would pay 5 times as much for cabinets elsewhere before he gave her one thin dime for them.

That's absolutely hilarious!!! So, the neighbor called your buyer and basically admitted to at least "receiving stolen property"???

She admitted to Taking It!

I told him to call her back and give her a couple hours to leave it all in the front yard or he would call the police. I certainly would!

Great anecdote Brent. Gotta love the capitalist spirit of the neighbor...

Unbelievable:)  Good for him for not going for the old okey-doke!  I have only seen cabinets, air conditioners, microwaves and other appliances removed from foreclosures.  Haven't had any neighbors steal anything that I know of...  especially not try to sell it back to the new owner.  Will wonders never cease?

That is amazing to me. I also sell REO foreclosure homes and have definately seen my fair share of odd and head scratching things. Kim White
