This sounds very confusing and I'm not understanding the situation at all. Keep in mind, it's impossible for anyone here to give you a clear answer since we weren't involved in these transactions. Regardless, I think it is wrong for an agent to not point out an error on the settlement statement (even if it did benefit you financially by $8K). It's still wrong! It wasn't your money. And then you needed $8K more to close on the new house? But she gave YOU a promissory note?? (so she owes you?) None of this makes sense. Is is possible you were buying a home that was listed with TRELORA (a reduced fee company)? Maybe they didn't pay your buyer's agent the industry standard, so she's wanting to get the rest of it from you?
Again, the entire story sounds very strange and fishy.... more
How much are you able to to buy the property for?? Boulder values will always remain high. Sounds like a great opportunity to buy a home in Boulder. Everything is fixable. Just depends on how much money you have to sink into it. In the long run, it will be a great investment.... more
You'll need to contact the listing agent. Sometimes it takes a while for listings to stop showing up here, even when they are listed as "Sold" in the MLS. If you are the owner, you can claim it, and make changes yourself.... more
You asked this question a while back. I'm curious about what you finally did. Are you now back in Boulder? Did you move to the mountains? Let us know "the rest of the story," as Paul Harvey used to say.
