Drive through closing, now that's new!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - The Hatcher Group

I recently heard about an agent who had a closing at a Dunkin Donuts coffee shop.  It wan't really a drive through closing, they actually met inside and performed the ritual.  Not only is it new, but it's Maine! 

The story got better when the the buyers discovered in the back yard weeks later (large yard with snow) that the previous owner decided not to move with their 900 lb. pig, and took it out back and shot it!  Additionaly if you can believe this, the sellers also must have been having trouble with the facilities in the home and preceded to use the side of the house as a restroom for a week or two prior to the closing, 

All of this in the dead of winter in Maine.  Small town yes, rural yes, unbelievable...I thought so, but it's true.  I could only laugh and think, thank god it didn't happen to me or one of my clients!  Can you beat this?

wow I never thought about what you could hide in the snow...We don't get much here..who am I kidding we don't get any here. I wonder (and I am being serious) if that is something the seller would legally have to disclose. I mean you could dump all kind of things in the back yard if you new it was gonna snow for a month

Kathleen, I hadn't thought about the upside of an outside freezer.

Richard, I beleive the pig incident occured long after the disclosures where presented to the buyers, but might have been important to mention at the closing table.

Jay, I bet if the buyers held the closing at a barbeque restaurant they might have at least thought to ask the sellers what they were doing with the pig before signing the paperwork.
