Some of our real estate transactions create fleeting memories that hang around for a few days after closing and then we promptly forget all about them as they go POOF and something else takes over that position. It seems for me that it's the more challenging real estate listings that I seem to remember for the longest period of time. The listings in which not necessarily the parties to the transaction were a problem because many uproars are not caused by the sellers nor the buyers -- it's those pesky third-party people that can disturb what would otherwise be a nice, smooth escrow.
When you toss the short sale equivalent into it, it seems to open more opportunities to run across more people you'd rather not ever cross paths with in the first place. But there they are. Banging on pots and pans, making noise, disturbing the peace, and you can't call the real estate police on them.
You can read more about those kinds of people in my personal blog today about the Tale of a Short Sale in The Rivers of West Sacramento.
