Thankful it Closed Another NW Indiana Home listed by F.C.Tucker

Not every home sells quickly.

Sometimes the real work in the sale of a property occurs after the purchase agreement has been accepted.

Issues may arise with the home inspection, the appraisal, the title work, underwriting conditions to be met, city permits for work to be done on the property,  all which need to be successfully resolved prior to closing the transaction.

Case in Point:

This Northwest Indiana Property had an accepted offer in March, yet did not close escrow until August.

This is rare with traditional real estate transations, however, may happen.

Our reputation is to work diligently with other agents, the lenders, title companies and attorneys and  contractors toward resolution of issues that are solve-able.

This requires patience, repetitive communication, thinking outside the box for solutions - yet keeping within the scope of ethics and the law to come to favorable outcomes for all parties.

We are grateful to have had cooperating parties in this transaction for the 5 month period that it took to resolve multiple issues.

We strive to get deals done.

This one did, despite many challenges, Thank God!
