Welcome to Escrow Out Loud, our San Francisco real estate podcast! In previous episodes we’ve touched on some interesting behavior from clients, but what happens when agents themselves are behaving badly? In what might become a recurring theme, welcome to this edition of Agents Behaving Badly! After listening to Episode 4 – Bye Felicia about a bad BMR listing agent some delightful clients from Shivering Heights reminded us of another property situation which was a prime example of an agent behaving badly.
In this episode of Escrow Out Loud, our San Francisco Real Estate podcast, we go back to one of the properties we mentioned in our Open House episode. In hindsight, that open home experience should have given us a hint of what was to come! Matt explains the oxymoron that is the short-sale property, a process that is anything but short. Short sales involve a long process which includes getting the existing lender’s approval, as they will be coming up short because the seller is unable to pay the entire loan they had taken out on the property.
Imagine finding the perfect property, in a perfect neighborhood, for the right price. Your deposit is accepted and you go into contract when suddenly the listing agent goes AWOL and the seller is uncooperative. No phone-call. No letter. Just complete radio-silence. Naturally, you would be disappointed the sale of your dream home fell through but sometimes it’s important to remember it’s not over until it’s over.
