The Air In A Real Estate Property Sale Can Get Heated, Charged.

The Air In A Real Estate Property Sale Can Get Heated, Charged.

The atmosphere, air surrounding a real estate property sale in Maine can get a little heated up, electrically charged.

Not always in a good way. The emotions can run high. The stakes are huge when a listing has to sell quickly and there is a clock ticking loudly to remind everyone involved of the urgency.

To get the SOLD real estate sign rider screwed on the top of the silent salesman out front the sticks and bricks.

The Maine home sweet home needing to replaced with a new house to hold down the title.

The new address for the upper left hand corner of the Christmas cards next December.

It takes everyone pulling in the real estate property sale leather traces. But that does not always happen. Not a given that things goes smoothly, without a hitch or snag. 

The divorce of the two property owners going through a split up, breaking up the Maine household. Those listings take extra care, lots of tough skinned, tender hearted treatment to get to the closing conference room.

 Like the bridge conversation on the Titanic one cold winter night under the stars after hitting the chunk of ice.

The tension can be incredible and building to a breaking point. When the knot tied with two families watching comes undone for good. farmers museum maine photo

The new home that can not be bought until the old one is mortgage free, sold.

Those situations where one half of the parenting team is missing.

Gone to the new location and renting, away from family.

Going ahead to set up the next location for the rest of the tribe. Those situations add stress to the already complicated, fast moving game of selling a home in today’s real estate market.

The Maine bank handling the home mortgage underwriting.

Calling the agent or broker or borrower with the bad news. To let them all know the place came in low on the property appraisal value.

Or the long list of fix this, this and oh yeah that too.That takes time, money, was not expected by anyone in the transaction.

And the buyer says don’t look at me. The seller says the same thing because the price tag on the property reflects the loose ends.

That the bank demands get tied up before the clear to close memo get sent to the attorneys on a Maine home sale of a residential listing.katahdin moose photo

The length of delays, all the extensions and set backs in the layers of players.

If drag happens in the real estate hurry up and wait.

Life factors like lay offs from jobs, finding out someone has to have an operation.

Heck even buying a new car, some recreational new toy, etc during the purchase period can mess up a Maine real estate sale. With debt ratios suddenly too high with the new ride payment added to the approval scales in buying a Maine home.

So steady she goes. Easy does it and let’s attack the problems not jump to the wrong conclusion about the people involved in the real estate property sale.

Who is to blame, should have seen this coming and warned everyone.

It is hard not to give someone the evil eye when a buyer or seller and the deal tilts.

Goes sideways and disappointment enters the conversation. When the real estate sale that was such a sure thing, slam dunk easy going in gets bogged down. mooers realty puzzle piece graphic

And the agent, broker, REALTOR gets the sharp glance that stings.

Without words the barbed, telegraphed loudly. With the eyes questioning, demanding to know how could you let this happen?

And just fix it. Fix it now. Or else.

Candor in the real estate sales helps.

Tell it like it is and don’t beat around the bushes.

In real estate listing sales in Maine, anywhere, the devil is in the details. MOOERS REALTY works hard to pay attention to the road ahead that leads from listing to property closing.
