|Birds of a Feather|
If your buyer is getting a mortgage, expect to have to endure requests for other documents from the lender that you may not have anticipated. Those can include, among other things, detailed condo questionnaires, master insurance policies and possibly an elevation certificate. If you want to reach the closing table, you'll have to play along, as frustrating as it can be. A little advance preparation can reduce that frustration. Know who to contact when the requests come and make sure you can trust that person to round up the documents promptly. A slow or non-responsive contact can kill your sale. There is a grumpy, well-known property manager on the beach who will take great pleasure in refusing requests from your buyer's lender and your Realtor if she happens to be your contact. It might be a good idea to go ahead and touch base with the person who will be fielding the requests for documents and ask for cooperation. An advance box of chocolates could pay dividends.
Good luck in your selling. The market is strong but the lenders' current documentation requirements and guidelines for condo loans is making the process more stressful and difficult.
"It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong." ___Thomas Sowell
