This House Is "On The Market?" Really??
"Call 1-st Lister," said the showing instructions. So I did. I left a message on the agent's voice mail, that is, requesting a Friday afternoon or Sunday showing.
She called back quickly. "Sorry," she said, "but I don't have a key."
"So we have to make an appointment with the sellers?”
“The sellers are out of state. But they have promised to send me a key.”
“But the house has been on the market for two and a half weeks. And nobody has been able to see it?”
“I haven’t seen it, either. The tenants are kind of, ehm, hostile.”
“But it’s in the MLS?”
“Do you have some interior pictures?” There weren’t any online.
“No. Can I take your information and call you back?”
Later on Friday, she called back. She had been to the house and talked to somebody who lives there. They were “not happy” about the house being sold. They were not willing to give her a phone number or email address, she said, or to accommodate showings.
The house is an 87-year-old bungalow on a 25,000 square foot, park-like lot. Maybe the agent secretly hoped somebody would buy it for the land?
