Buying a San Diego home? Search all homes for sale
I’m back with another strange story from my years as a real estate agent.
Years ago, there were foreclosures all over San Diego and the country. I had 40 to 50 different clients that were banks, Fannie Mae, and various other entities selling foreclosed properties.
One of the unpleasant tasks that comes with this territory is knocking on the person’s door and informing them that their home is being foreclosed on.
Fortunately, we were typically able to offer some money to help them move, which made things a little bit easier for them. A young man named Travis used to work for me—Travis, if you see this, give me a call and let me know how you’re doing.
Anyway, Travis was a real go-getter, and his job was to tell people when their homes were being foreclosed on.
“Travis offered the sales manager $3,000 to move the cars and surrender the lot!”
He was out at a property when I got a phone call from a used car lot. The sales manager says, “I want to hire this guy. He’s been trying to give me money to move from the used car lot!”
Well, it turns out that Travis had the wrong address and had gone to this used car lot and offered $2,000 or $3,000 for this sales manager to surrender the lot and move his cars from the property!
Obviously, we are not in the business of foreclosing on used car lots.
Thanks for joining me for another chapter of “Storytime With Gary.” If you have any questions or are thinking of buying or selling a home, just give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you!
