My very first listing and they came out of the woodwork for me. I listed a house of a friend I had worked with years ago. She had tried to sell this house for over a year by herself with no luck. So I gladly took the listing and put up a sign.
First nut. This lady calls me about the price and proceeds to tell me she isn't stupid and she doesn't need to hear what I just told her. I politely say thank you and hang up.
Second Nut. Someone who had wanted to buy the house when it was a FSBO called to tell me the pipes were bad and the slab was also bad. I asked the owner about this person. She said someone had an engineer come out and took a look at the slab and said it was cracked. Also the pipes were supposedly scoped and they were bad.
Third nut. My sign kept falling down, no matter how firm I put it in the ground. I mean 15-20 feet away from where I placed it. Finally found out the ex-husband was pulling the sign out of the ground. They had been divorced for over 10 years. I guess he never grew up or had nothing else to do.
Fourth nut. The eventual buyer puts in an offer with an appraisal. Now I asked my broker who has been in the business for 20 years has he ever had this happen. He said no of course. Turns out this gut eventually buys the house. This guy had all the inspection done and everything was OK. I guess the moral of the story is let the agent put up with the idiots. Now I have a good story to tell future clients about the trouble I can help them with.
