Please note that when John contacted me, he already had an interested buyer for my 7 rental properties. We therefore didn’t have to go through all of the usual process of advertising. All of the homes were occupied with tenants. The buyer met with John & me and a closing date was set & earnest funds received by John from the buyer. The buyer was going out of the country for several weeks and wanted to wait until January 30th of the coming year to close (in 2019), which at that time was probably about 2 months away.
