Interesting scuttlebutt learned from talking to fellow agents, which is a prime reason to attend these affairs: building inspectors are busy and in fact booked up, unavailable until the middle of next week. In slow times, some of these guys have been there within 24 hours at worst and often on just a few hours notice. Inspections arise from accepted offers so look for more of them to be reported soon. Turns out, many agents/owners are reluctant to report an accepted offer because it kills showings and if the offer never matures into a contract, the owner’s been off the market for three weeks or so and has missed a big chunk of the spring market.
Under the rules of the MLS, A/Os are supposed to be reported immediately but I don’t blame anyone for disregarding that – the rule may make things more convenient for buyers and their agents (that would be me) but is harmful to the seller. My vote goes to the seller, in this instance.
By the way, that renovation on Perryridge, discussed here yesterday, is very nice. Not much of a yard but this is essentially an in-town property, so you shouldn’t expect a big yard. Nice work. I am not at all more favorably inclined towards its price of $3.295 since seeing it but at the right price: $2.45? $2.675? it would be a nice buy.
