This past weekend, my hubby and I spent an afternoon cleaning up loose ends and decided to preview 2 homes we are getting ready to market, both being bank repo's.
The first home we had to replace the front door locks with the proper key locks by sawing off the old ones. Sounds really bad on a quiet afternoon; brings all the neighbors out to see who is breaking into a house. To my surprise, one neighbor walked over to see if we had purchased the home. We quickly let them know we were real estate agents and they seem satisfied.
Once we were able to get inside the home, I started taking photos - not a bad little home - should sell quickly once the bank give us a price. Suddenly I realized I was covered with fleas!!!!!! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! All the way out the door, jumping up and down, running into the front yard, flinging off my shoes...........to realize several neighbors had gathered to enjoy the show! Guess they had been in the house before and failed to warn us.
Lesson learned! Make sure we spray before entering a vacant home! Unfortunately this is the only photo of the home. The fleas ran me off before I finished my job!
