I’ve got a deal where the buyer and her attorney are totally uncommunicative. Unless I ask for status or basically harass them into doing something, nothing happens. And if I get a response, it appears to be a form letter.
So when the time came for the mortgage commitment being due (again, after two 15 day extensions granted by my clients), I again asked “what’s up?” The unsurprising response after two days of faxing, e-mails, and calls to the broker was a pro-forma fax request for an extra 15 days. The communication had no status report or a single word of personalization that would give my client a clue as to what is going on.
When I called to discuss whether or not the extension would be granted, my client wanted to know if she was wasting her time. I advised I had zero to share, and the response I was requested to convey to the buyer’s attorney today is: “Seller wants to know if your client actually gives a shit about buying this house.”
I bet the buyer’s attorney doesn’t have a form response to that question.
