UPDATE: In my situation I had a conversation with the broker regarding the park I am interested in. Was told at the time that park is listed at X, broker tells that owner will take Y, I say okay send me a contract for an attorney to look over and we can go from there. Broker tells me I have to make an offer, seller will then counter-offer and once we decide on a price we can move forward to a contract from there. End of phone conversation. Fine I look over the park info again, next day call broker, leave message with offer, price Z and email offer to broker. He calls today, informs me he has offer but now I have to come up with terms, 3 sets of them, based on a lump sum cash offer, terms with seller financing and terms with a bank loan as well as a bank authorization stating that I qualify for the loan amount and have financing in place for the deal. Fine called my bank’s business loan officer today and he told me that the whole process broker has laid out is backwards. Am I just getting cocked around by this broker or is this the way these things are supposed to go? And my favorite line from broker today, I should hurry as a couple others are interested in park as well. I am sure they are, it has been listed quite some time now.
