Last week I took a few much needed days off -- business has been extremely busy and it felt good to vacation. Actually read a magazine and got to thinking that it would be great to have a few days to catch up at home, go pick some strawberries and maybe make a strawberry pie. Maybe I should take a day and go to the beach, or Silver Creek Falls -- I love those places!!
Well -- while I was vacationing my evil real estate associates (I thought some of them were my friends) have been foiling my plans.
First day back home - had to destage a property that sold. Was on the market --F-O-R-E-V-E-R--, was staged and sold within a couple of months. Hooray -- I really am happy for these great sellers and the agent too!
But then I got an email - the model home we prepared has sold - can we move it soon?
Then another - the house that was so difficult to sell has gotten an offer - will close in a couple of weeks.
And then today - the straw that broke my back -- two other staged homes sold this week end!
This doesn't count the redesign we worked on that now has a great offer too . . . only have to move some accessories from that sold home.
Go ahead - tell me it's a slow market (if you were moving this much furniture you would not think the market was slow either). Just when I was ready to sit in the lawn chair and sip a long tall one and work on my tan, these agents go and spoil all my fun! Don't you think they should take a break and quit working so hard too -- remember -- it's a SLOW market (somewhere).
The next time I'm going on vacation I'm going to be taking my real estate agent friends with me I guess -- they make way to much work for me while I'm gone selling these properties!
Meanwhile, I guess I'll just be looking at the pictures of these falls as we pack up our furniture/decor and move it on to the next "slow" selling home! Anyone want to pick some strawberries for me?
