I woke up this morning to an email from an agent who shared the experience she had been through over the weekend. I laughed so hard, I cried. This is every realtor's nightmare but it really happened. Here goes:
"Ok, did I do a complete blunder.... I showed xxxxxx street this weekend. I drove up, saw the for sale sign at the end of the road, turned left, was waved to by the owner weeding at the front of the long driveway. I parked my car and proceeded into the unlocked back door because after looking around the whole perimeter of the house for an unseen lock box, I thought I remembered the listing agent saying the back door would be open (which it was). Much to my dismay, I was in the wrong house and the naked husband that was upstairs was pretty startled by my clients and I standing in his kitchen commenting on the lovely appliances...Ok, I didn't see complete frontal nudity but it was obvious he was in the buff. Let's just say he wasn't too please with us! And to add to my horror, he bellowed out his disgust with the fact that both my client and I had our shoes on and they NEVER allow shoes in their home! I had not taken my shoes off (which I always do) and didn't put on the booties in the box by the front door because I came in the back door and it was a wood floor. AND, just the fact that they had blue booties in a box by the front door added to my delusion that I was in the appropriate house.
The point is, the listing agent needs a directional pointing to the right, under the for sale sign because The naked man and then his wife who I met on my way out the driveway (still don't know why she waved at me turning into her dirveway and didn't question me getting out of the car, scurrying around her house looking for a lock box, then disappearing for 5 minutes?????) said that many times people have turned down their driveway and realized they were at the wrong house. But of course, no one ever went as far as venturing into the house. Too funny now, but needless to say it was a startling and embarrassing situation at the time! Thank goodness my client has a good sense of humor.
Agents, please give us clear directionals, Nuff Said.
