A Little Humor

Real Estate Appraiser with Preferred Appraisers, Inc. (NJ) 42RG00094600

As an element in preparing appraisal reports I cite recent sales of properties similar to the subject of my appraisal. In doing so I include photographs and descriptions of those comparable sales.

The other day I am standing outside of a WAWA Store where I stopped to get a drink and was calling my office. As people streamed out of WAWA at noon and walked passed me I told Eileen back at the office that "I made a mistake and shot the neighbor and would have to go back". Needless to said the stream of blank unconcerned faces passing by me at that moment suddenly turned my way in surprise. Of course, I was referring to taking a photograph of a house.

I bet you did get some second looks making that comment in the store.  How funny.  Love a little bit of humor to start the day.

So, what would you have done if a citizen stepped in and tried to detain you? ....Probably never happen. Thanks for the laugh first thing this morning!

That is funny.  Don't you just hate it when you have to make a return trip.  Why not photoshop the neighbor into a shrub?
