Work Related: Your Mom Called

So over the weekend this WannaBe Investor tells me he wants to make a cash offer on a foreclosure.
OK, that's fine but then he says he wants to offer 20K on a 50K property.
Clearly he has been watching too much late night TV.

I explain that foreclosures are already marked low to attract attention, very competitive right now and very often go over list price.
Unless he wants to make a serious offer, I can't help him.

Then...yesterday afternoon I get a phone call.
From his Mom.
Why won't I work with her son?

Are you freaking kidding me?

I'm stunned and amazed and wondering if he knew his mommy called you.

coughmommasboycoughcough...seriously...$30K below an already reduced property. Just because it's a foreclosure doesn't mean you can steal it. Morons.

Some people are just nuts, huh? They think someone is going to let a house go for that little? Even in this market? They need a reality check ... and sonnyboy needs his mommy to hold his hand?? Weird!
