Successful closing today on a Tampa Florida home!

November 7th, 2012

We had a successful closing today on a home on Twin Branch Acres Rd, Tampa Florida  I was contacted by a local attorney.  He had a client that wanted to buy a property from a homeowner.  The house was vacant.  It was not for sale with a Realtor.  It has been a while since the last payment was made.  Deb and I contacted the owner and her bank.  We started the short sale process.  After a couple months we closed on it.  The seller was happy to get it sold.  The buyer was also happy and will be fixing it up and move into it in a couple months.  Yeah… happy customers!
