Don't You Love Babies?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

     Tonight I got the phone call that most, if not all, realtors love! Some clients that I really think the world of are expecting their second child! I am so happy for them because they are just wonderful people and great parents. The second part of the good news to me was when they said that their townhouse is now too small! 

       This couple has been looking at bigger houses since she was just three months pregnant with their first child, two years ago, but now, with the expected arrival in a few months of a second child, they are really motivated!  We are going to start looking in earnest for that perfect home! What a great reason to buy a new  home!

When you think about it, there are only a few reasons why most people buy or sell a home - and some are good to great reasons, and others just aren't.

Good Reasons                                                            Not Good

Marriage                                                     Divorce

Arrival of New Family  Members (Babies)         Death

New Job or Pay Raise                                    Loss of Job

Winning the Lottery                                      Too Much Gambling (?)


Smiling Baby


  So, to all you babies out there - I say "Welcome!" We're glad you're here!

Well just find them a home before the baby is born.  I would hate to have someone go into labor in my car!

Lisa - I definitely love babies, which is why we have four kiddos.  The second part of your post illustrates why I prefer working with buyers most of the time.  :-)

Babies are great, but I just want to say kudos to you for doing such a good job the first time that they called you this time! Congrats!

  Babies are great. I missed carrying them. They grow up so fast.
