buyers: Buyers, don't mistake a for sale sign as an invitation to trespass - 04/08/13 08:11 PM
This weekend some nimwit pulled his boat up the dock of one of our listings. Do you think he called the number on sign to ask for info? No, he didn't. Nimwit walked up the house and opened the door. There sat the owner in her night gown. Nimwit tucked tail and made his way back to the dock and his boat with a quickness. A home being on the market doesn't make it a free to trespass zone. Sometimes owners allow buyers to walk and look at the property. I have a home where the blinds are drawn and the (43 comments)
buyers: This deal must have been "really meant to be" - 12/17/12 01:02 PM
A year ago I was fighting with the federal government and boy was I loosing. I called my congressman. My buyer called his congressman. I wrote my Senator, I called his office too. I begged. I tried being firm and loud. I tried tears. Nope, no one would budge and the seller (Fannie Mae) just pulled the contract and the house from the market. So a few weeks ago when the issues were finally worked out would you believe that my buyer actually had to go in as any other buyer and make an offer. Finally we won. Today we close. (16 comments)
buyers: My cat the hunter and real estate - 11/08/12 08:28 PM
I just let my puppies out to go potty one last time before they turned in for the night. With a couple of lamps on all evening I guess there were a few moths near my patio doors. When I opened the door one flew in and my cat went on "hunter" mode. She jumped around from chair to sofa to chair to coffee table. Within one minute the moth flew down by lamp and my little ittle bitness got it. She played with it for a while, then ran into the other room with it. I don't know what happened (15 comments)
buyers: Sometimes it really is about the game and not winning or loosing - 10/26/12 04:35 PM
This afternoon my Donald and I played cards with friends. We had a fabulous lunch followed by an afternoon of playing cards. We play a game called hand and foot and it's all in fun, no money involved. But we do have a little trophy that we swap back and forth depending upon who wins 2 out of three games each month when we get together to play. Sadly the elephant is NOT on my entertainment center where he has been the last three or four months. But we still had a great time. Sometimes it's just about the game.... But (14 comments)
buyers: The Laws of Attraction and Real Estate? - 08/03/12 03:32 PM
When driving to work I heard that all relationships start with attraction. And while that may be true, it's not ALWAYS what you see that attracts you, it might perhaps be what you read. I know this from personal experience and when I think about the calls I get on Real estate ads they are sometimes not intrigued at all by the photos, but the words. In fact, sometimes they don't call on a particular house at all, they call on a blog post and even the strangest of blog posts are the ones they find sometimes. And the other day (36 comments)
buyers: Contact information when searching for a Lake Sinclair/Milledgeville home - 07/31/12 12:59 PM
MAILER DEMON ---> I hate when that happens. But if your typed incorrectly email address is the only way I have to contact you then you are not going to be hearing from me or my staff. Unless of course you ALSO provide a phone number. We LOVE to be able to answer our internet inquires, but when we get that "Mailer Demon" notice that the email does not exist we are out of luck to get in touch with you IF email was the only contact information you provided. And I hate for people to think I've ignored them, that (7 comments)
buyers: How did you miss that listing? - 11/02/11 01:59 PM
In chatting with a friend recently who happens to be a real estate broker I was telling him about the lowest price sale our office had this year. I didn't tell him the contract price, he'll have to wait until it closes. You will too for that matter. But what I will do is show you this pending listing. Mind you... it needs work, LOTS of work, but bones in the 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath home built in 1947 are good. And the list price $11,900. The bonus... 6 blocks from Georgia College and State University and about 10 blocks from (16 comments)
buyers: What is he thinking?? You can't tell by just looking! - 11/05/08 06:13 PM
You could look at the face of this bug and imagine what he is thinking if you could imagine that he could think. Well it's same with an agent looking at a potential buyer. You just can't look at someone and know what they are thinking. You can imagine, but are you right and what if you are wrong? When you the agent show property... do you always drive your client?? Do you meet them at the property?? Do you let them follow you in their own car?? You you the potential buyer are looking for property do you want to (10 comments)
