so what. It is not a race. Add an addendum. Tell the seller you made an error. They might just realize that you are human. That you are in this WITH them. Don’t make it an adversarial situation. They want you to solve their problem and they know you expect to get something from it. I filled out a purchase agreement the other day and guess what I had sitting beside me as a talked to the seller? I had an example of a purchase agreement from a previous purchase. I also forgot that I needed a notary? Guess what the seller said. Hey, there is a notary at the drugstore down the street, let’s go down there. We went down together and we talked about our kids on the way. She got down there and she forgot she needed an ID (Now she is embarrassed). No problem, we go back and get her ID and get the contract notarized. My advice would be to put an ad in the paper first and get motivated sellers to call you instead of cold calling. But DO SOMETHING NOW. Don’t read the course again.
