Slowly getting there... Started off with a quick ROFR, but every other step felt like forever.

I hate your at the mercy of the sellers getting their closing docs returned. The brokers should put some type of pressure on them.

Wow - the long ROFR wait was not great, but the quick turnaround on Estoppel and closing is great! Congratulations!
Let me know what date is on your Waiver of ROFR paperwork.....we submitted ours on 1/25 and were told that we passed on 3/2 but when I got a copy of the waiver with my closing documents, the waiver was dated that it was waived on 2/18! If that is true, why did I not hear until 3/1?

This gives me hope! We got our estoppel the same day, but passed ROFR after you! Our agent said they received something like 37 estoppel's on Monday!

I hate your at the mercy of the sellers getting their closing docs returned. The brokers should put some type of pressure on them.
I know it. I sent a friendly email to the title company every few days to check in, and it sounds like they did stay on top of the sellers as best they could. Unfortunately for this one, the sellers needed to sign and return separate packages and one took a full 2+ weeks to get theirs back.

*we inquired a few times about the delay. Broker reached out to Disney at least twice to check on delay. Not sure if the waiver decision failed to be conveyed and our waiver date was really estoppel date...but we had closing docs delivered the same day as we received the waiver notification. So the second part was very fast! 😀

It's always weird to me why the seller doesn't want their money as soon as possible
