When you represent a seller always take time to ask about liens against the house. Most homes will have a mortgage and some will have a second mortgage. Always assume there is a second mortgage and ask the seller the amount of the second mortgage. This can prevent troublesome surprises when you get to closing.
About a year to six months ago, I showed Mike J. some properties. We looked here and there, high and low. Then he disappeared. And I didn’t here from him from a long while. Last week he contacted me and said he’s ready to buy. He’ll be moving to Midtown Alexandria and we expect to ratify a contract shortly.
