I answered the phone on one of the nursing units at the hospital I work at saying : Pediatrics, This is LadyCJM, how may I help you?
Caller: Hi I'm calling from ABC mortgage and we would like to talk to you about our new lower interest rates. We can offer you 3% on a mortgage of 300K.
Me: Thanks, but this is a hospital.
Caller: Well I'm sure if you needed a larger amount to re-fi your property that we could accommodate your needs with a low interest rates and no points.
Me; Sir, this is a hospital, I do NOT own this property.
Caller: Oh, you rent? We are always happy to help out first time buyers, in fact we have a special deal right now where we can roll your closing costs into the loan so you won't need to put any money down.
Me: Well that sounds wonderful.
Caller: That's great, We can easily qualify you for 300K.
Me: I think this property is worth much then that.
Caller: Oh, how much more?
Me: Well, there are 3 main buildings and about a dozen smaller buildings, plus there is a heliport.
Caller: We could arrange for someone to come out and assess the property and then we can decide on the value of the loan.
Me: Wow that would be terrific. Send them by anytime, We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Tell them to ask for the CFO. Have a nice day!
I swear I was talking to a computer that was responding to key words! Had to be...right? I mean, no one would really try to sell me a mortgage on a hospital...right??? LOL I laughed for the rest of the day.
