I'm sure that many agents have stories about awkward times when out with buyers because, no matter how careful you are, somebody in the house you're planning to show occasionally does not get the message that you are going out there.
One of my oddest was the teenager who never woke up. My client and I met to go out to look at homes in the Sumner and Edgewood areas of Pierce County. The first home had a great view of Mt. Rainier and sat on a big piece of land across from a horse pasture. We opened the door in the middle of the morning and after I called out a few times, we began going through the house. A door was closed and we opened it, only to close it quickly as it was clear someone was fast asleep in there. We tiptoed out after looking at the rest of the home and returned to my office. My buyer decided to write up the home and it was on to the inspection. The teen was there again, fast asleep. Same for the appraisal. I began thinking that I needed to write into an addendum that the teenager needed to be removed prior to closing since no one wanted to find out that he came with the house!
On another occasion, I did write that "Llamas, chickens and other livestock to go with/or be removed by seller" into the Purchase and Sale. The house my investor was purchasing had a barnyard full of animals but I think what most freaked him out was the Great Dane on the property. Impressive in size, the dog was taller than hip level for me and reminded me of a small pony. He was very gentle in disposition and never barked. He was, however, very, very big and my buyer, not being accustomed to animals was always uncomfortable so we wrote the addendum in order to reassure him that the dog wouldn't be there when he took possession of the property.
What's your wackiest story? I'm sure there are lots to go around!
