If you haven’t been following the craziness of The WTF House, read this to catch up…
Things are still crazy. As of this morning, the listing agent is telling us that she’s spoken with the bank negotiator and verified that the bank will still accept the wire transfer today (even though it’s past the approval deadline). The closing attorney is refusing to wire the funds to the bank until she gets something in writing to that effect; I don’t blame her…it’s her insurance and reputation on the line if she wires the money and then somewhere down the road the bank tries to foreclose and causes title issues.
So, the closing attorney, listing agent and negotiator will be having a conference call this morning to discuss and hopefully work out a resolution. On the bright side, the sellers got all their stuff out of the house by the deadline, so as soon as the house is officially closed, we can start work.
In the meantime, here are some pictures of the house (taken Saturday morning before the move-out was complete):
I’ll post another update tomorrow, hopefully with good news!
EDIT: Just got word from the closing attorney that the negotiator is requesting a rush approval letter to extend the closing date to today. If we can get that letter today, the funds will be wired today and the deal will be done.
