I took one of my buyers to view a home today and while doing so encountered an experience that I never would have imagined possible. I still can't put <it> together. How could this happen? The home I showed backs up to a very thick and wooded area. It's not easy to manuver around as you'll see in the video below. Usually when I walk through a backyard I anticipate the possibility of a loose dog, or perhaps a mouthy one next door. There's nothing worse than showing a buyer who is suddenly turned off by a growling dog who is scraping at the fence with anxiety and frustration. As you can imagine this doesn't always go over well with a buyer. Today I saw what I thought was a huge dog through the cracks of the fence. As I got closer I realized this couldn't have been a dog! No way. It was too big, too hairy, too bulky and too still.
I'll preface the video below by letting you know that the house we viewed was in a residential restricted neighborhood with an active HOA.
