In the three short weeks I have been in Houston I have come to realize that in real estate, every day is a new day. My days in the office have been anything but mundane. Not only do you deal with different personalities, but no two transactions seem to ever be the same!With that being said, bumps in the road are likely to arise at some point. While other transactions go on smoothly, I have researched some of the most common things that can go wrong during a real estate transaction.

The top 15 are:

  1. Buyer Remorse
  2. Unknown structural issues arise
  3. SURPRISE! You’ve got MOLD!
  4. Buyer has been pre-approved- but,wait! Buyer has NO CREDIT!
  5. WAIT! You can’t take it with you! (appliances, etc…)
  6. New home is ready and you have to buy, but your home is not sold
  7. Your house is sold but you cannot find a property to buy
  8. Buyer’s real estate agent does not show up at settlement
  9. Your agent or the other agent acts unprofessionally
  10. Buyer does not bring money in correct form to settlement
  11. Sellers failed to properly complete repairs
  12. Lender drops the ball
  13. Faulty appraisal
  14. Buyer Converts Auto Lease to Purchase (or, buys a new car!)
  15. The SELLER decides not to SELL!

Buying or selling a home is exciting, especially when the market is right for it.
