I recently received an email from a person who was going to buy through me a few years ago but then changed their mind. They sent me an email asking for some help. One of their kids bought a house in Oakville.
The deal is now firm, and wanted me to find out more about it.
I sent her an email saying that his agent should have provided him with all the information.
She let me know that it was a private sale and even the lawyer was wondering why the sellers wanted to sell so quickly.
Guess they should have used an agent.
