On the MLS printout it reads, "Please call the owner for showing instructions."
A 13 year old boy answered. I asked for X and this was his response...
"My dad went to get new tires on his car, do you want me to call him?"
Me: "I just want to show the house, so if that's what you need to do, yes."
13 year old: "The garage sales are going to be going all day, you're not calling about that are you?"
Me: "No, the house YOU are in is on the mkt and I'm a Realtor with a buyer who would like to show your home."
13 year old: "Oh, ha ha, sorry sir. I don't live here. Hold on..."
Some other lady "Hello, is this David?"
Me: "No, this is Greg Nino with RE/MAX. I have a buyer and would like to show your home."
Some other lady: "I am so sorry. I'm X's sister-in-law, we're in town visiting. Let me call X's wife on her cell, she's with her daughter at Party City. I'll see what's going on and make sure somebody calls you... EXCUSE ME..... LONG PAUSE........... OH, hold on. Did you say you were X's Realtor, like the Realtor for THIS house?
Me: "No, I'm GREG NINO I'm trying to show THAT house, I don't work for the seller."
Some other lady: "Oh, okay. I don't really understand.. LOL. I just want to help. YIKES. Let me call X's wife.
That was 1 hour ago.
Do you think this homeowner is saving any money by attempting to do things on their own? On the MLS it reads: "Seller ANXIOUS to look at ALL offers." There's also a btsa. Bonus to selling agent of $2,000.00. That's extra commission to the agent who brings the buyer. I wonder if they should have spentd that money on something else.
