As you are probably aware, your option to purchase the property located at 195 North Main Drive, Stockbridge, GA 30281 is set to expire on September 31, 2002. Since time is short, we must work cooperatively to move forward with your purchase of the home.
As you know, you have the right to choose whether or not you’d like to purchase the property. We certainly hope that you will exercise your option to purchase the property. However, we’d like to assist in clarifying what will happen in either case.
If You Choose To Purchase The Property
Congratulations! You’re probably just a few weeks away from being a homeowner! We’d like to help you move towards your goal of home ownership as quickly as possible.
Your next step is to notify us of your intent to exercise your option to purchase the property. Please make sure that we receive the notification no later than September 30, 2001.
Immediately after we receive your notice, we will enter into a purchase and sale agreement with you pursuant to the terms of the Real Estate Purchase Option that you signed on August 27, 2001.
Note that the Option Consideration payment of $4,750.00 that you made on August 27, 2001 will apply towards a reduction in the purchase price of the home from $97,700.00 to $92,950.00.
Closing and funding must be completed on or before October 31, 2001.
Please note that it is possible that your mortgage lender could require the payment of additional down payment money. Therefore it is critical that you begin the mortgage loan application process immediately. After receipt of your notice of intent to exercise your option, I will contact you via telephone to establish a meeting with the appropriate mortgage broker.
If You Choose Not To Purchase The Property
As you know, you have the option not to purchase the property. While I certainly hope that you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to purchase the property, there is no obligation on your part to do so.
However, please note that all sums you have paid under the Real Estate Purchase Option, including your Option Consideration payment of $4,750.00 on August 27, 2001, are non-refundable and will be forfeited by you if you decide not to purchase the property.
Please allow me to reiterate: If you want to exercise your option to purchase the property, it is necessary that we receive notice of your decision no later than September 30, 2001. Failure to give notice prior to that date will constitute the automatic forfeiture of all payments made according to the Real Estate Purchase Option.
Regardless of your decision, I’d like to thank you for your business during the past year. If you have any questions, you can reach me directly at (770) 954-9528.
