We've got people shopping again!!
I was showing a house today to people who have bought from me before and let me sell their house before. You know, those people that you absolutely love!!
They referred a relative to me and we were looking at a house for the third time. My past clients were to look and give their opinion. They were all in the dining room and started laughing.
Upon asking them what was so funny, they pointed to the dining room table which had a big zigzaw puzzle laid out on it. One of them said, "Wouldn't it be funny if we took just one piece of that puzzle?" Visualizing the family putting the whole thing together and lacking one piece which couldn't be found anywhere was pretty funny.
I joined in the laughter and said they'd better not dare!! It was a light moment and a fun moment.
It also points out the fact that a house needs to be depersonalized when it is on the market. We saw kids and relatives photos everywhere and there we were looking at a puzzle instead of concentrating on the dining room!
Depersonalize! Depersonalize! Please!
