Did they buy the wrong house while looking at Austin TX Homes for Sale?
Funny story... I had a closing today where the buyers didn't actually remember what the house looked like. They came into town back in June and we saw 27 houses over two days. This house was not their first choice, nor their second or third choice home.
However, the cards that fell into play, put this house as their choice. I negotiated an awesome deal for them, still with them not remembering the house.
I did the walk through for them, since they were out of town, and I took a lot of pictures to send them. They saw a couple of things that seemed familar, but not really. I tried and tried to explain the house, but they kept telling me they trusted me.
They flew into town last night for their closing this morning. They drove by the house yesterday evening and looked in the windows, and were confused because it wasn't the same picture on the appraisal.
Oh no, did they buy the wrong house??
At the closing, they showed me the picture they received from the appraiser... um, there aren't bushes in the front of your house... we were all a little confused. I was worried for a split second that we contracted the wrong house, however, I did two walk thrus with the customer service rep, so I know it was the right house.
Everything got signed, we funded, and I told the buyers to head over to the house. I expected a call, but didn't get one.
I called them a few minutes ago to get a reaction, and they absolutely love the house! I asked if they remembered it since they were now inside it, and neither one still really remembers too much about the house, but again, we saw 27 houses in the two days they were here.
But that doesn't matter. They trusted that I knew they liked that house, and they're flying home to pack their bags to bring the moving trucks!!
Boy, was I relieved to find out that I didn't mess this one up!!
