A Decent Saturday Arrives Soon ... Looking for Property in Ocean City, New Jersey
We will still have snow around, and it may be difficult to get into some sale properties ... but it appears that this Saturday will be a fairly nice day. That means a day without snow ... even a cold day sounds good to be right now. The important point has been to prepare the buyer for the potential difficulty of getting into a particular property ... I believe we have about ten to get into. Our first issue will be parking ... as noted before, most sidewalks have not been shoveled (no one living there right now ... a resort town), and all of the snow has been pushed to the side of the street ... no openings into the property. Second floors could be dangerous with ice and snow lingering on the steps. Finally, if it is above freezing; we may need boots to get into the properties without getting wet feet.
But in keeping with the positive approach of a nice day as well as a good, solid buyer coming to town, all of the above (last paragraph) doesn't bother me a bit. So I must make my phone calls to line up keys or lock combinations, or times if the properties are occupied. I must organize a "showing schedule" spelling out a good many details on paper to have ready answers to questions that will come up. Actually, I think the "showing schedule" concept is an important aspect to the entire buying process. The buyers tend to refer to this document as they visit properties, as well as later after visiting properties.
Let's hope we have no accidents along the way during our Saturday sale property visitation. dap
