A potential seller was trying to decide on what to do with the home. Keep it ....or sell it and downgrade. The house has been paid off for years. The only decision was if it would be a better choice to sell and bank all that money or just live in the home without worrying what to do, where to go, boxes to pack and so on.
MANY years past and the seller still had no worries.
The potential seller was older now and had two grandchildren come back to live in the home. With the grandson doing the yard work and the granddaughter taking care of the cleaning there were still no worries. The seller still worked and on vacations went to Las Vegas to have fun on the slot machines once a year.
A few more years past and the seller still had no worries.
At over age 80 the potential seller had one final decision to make. The economy was bad and the company that employed the potential seller was laying off people. They were cutting hours and during all these decisions the potential seller went on a month vacation. Rested for a couple weeks and then..... Off to Vegas!
After returning the potential seller called to see what the work schedule was for the week. NOT ON THE SCHEDULE??? What kind of B.S. is that after over 30 dedicated years to this company? No speech or a face to face talk. Wow. Is it because of the age thing?
Was it time for the potential seller to worry?
In this case, the potential seller won a bunch of money in Vegas and paid the car off. The house is paid off and bills are minimal for the upkeep of the home. I have a talk with the seller and advise to keep the home and just live in a home and on a property that surely has been the private abode enjoyed for MANY MANY years.
We take the good and the bad in this business and not all potentials will turn into leads. We have patience and let the potential client decide when they are ready. Or not. We listen and try and understand the needs of our clients to do the best possible for them. Even if it's a family member.
My mom is going to be 83 years old and got laid off for the first time in her life. Why sell?She has a roof over her head and is content in the home she has lived for 40 years come next summer.
WE LISTEN TO THEIR NEEDS.
And give the best possible advice.
I WILL sleep well for many nights to come.
