Unfortunately, mistakes do happen from time to time; however, making them translate to amendments to the purchase contract aren't always easy. Your agent should help you sort this out. Since you already have an agent, I don't want to interfere with their agency relationship with you, so call them to get it clarified in writing ASAP.
Best of luck!
This listing in the multiple listing service says that the estimated closing date is February 1, 2012. This should be reflected on your purchase and sale agreement that you signed on the property. If you have any questions that you would like resolved and you have a real estate agent, they would be the person I would be talking to. If you do not have an agent and you have questions, you can give me a call and we can talk.
This is a bank owned property that appears to have a tenant in it. If you are working with a lender to get a loan for the purchase, they will also be able to tell you approximately when documents will be ready and to the title company for signing. Once everything is signed, funded and recorded, the keys belong to you and the home is yours. Sometimes the estimated date changes some based on circumstances. If everything is ready early and there are no conditions which would prevent you from moving early, you can usually close when everything is ready to go. Each situation has its own issues so it would be difficult to make a blanket statement on any transaction without knowing more about the circumstances.
If you want to talk, give me a call. Good luck.
Would you mind updating us on what happened so we can all learn from it?
This is an issue you need to resolve through your real estate agent.
If you are not being represented by a real estate professional, this would be a great time to reconsider that choice.
The intricacies and complexities regarding the typical real estate transactions can prove to be problematic. Those agents who do many transactions a year have the agility to not only anticipate likely problems but have the solutions in place. In the end, a real pro makes it look easy and will save you time, money, disappointment and frustration.
Best of success in buying your new home.
