A Tale Of Two Showings - 07/28/09 09:03 AM
A Tale Of Two Showings It was the best of houses, it was the worst of houses. It was the time of staging, it was the time of clutter. It was a time of educated and enlightened sellers, it was the time of uninformed, unmotivated sellers.
Yesterday, I showed a buyer several houses. From the time we approached what we will call house one, it was apparent that they liked it. They liked the front porch and general appearance of the home. We entered the home and it could not have been a more precise floor-plan to what they had been (6 comments)

It can make phones ring in different places (acting as a call router), allow you to record calls, allow you to "listen in live" while a voice message is being left and much more.

Why didn't they just ask!? - 07/17/09 09:53 AM
