I have not posted anything in a week, because it has been crazy. I think my last post concerned the need for urgency in a real estate transaction, and that has been so true the last few days. One sale that was supposed to close on Friday was held up by a "technical" problem at Bank of America. They literally could not produce the documents for closing the loan. There was no particular explanation why they could not close except the computer would not let them. Was this a Wikileak sympathizer attack? Some of the people around the closing table yesterday thought so. Yes, we did get to closing yesterday a few, stress filled days later.
Between follow ups and closing extensions and reorganizing my schedule to make it to closing, I also managed to write four more offers and negotiated a sale on one of my listings. One more closing left this year, three scheduled for January, and two more possibly in the near future. It also happens to be Christmas and my wife's birthday. I have out of town buyers here over Christmas weekend, and I have not even finished putting up decorations. Suffice it to say it has been a little busy here in Orlando. I also have to put in a plug for Amy Hoak with MarketWatch (part of the Wall Street Journal). I spent some time with her on the phone last week for a real estate article she is working on. With all this going on, I have let my blogging slide a bit. I will have an update on Orlando real estate early next week.
