Oh help me! I'm showing Real Estate in Phoenix Arizona. The temperature is predicted to climb to 115 later this week. I carry water in the car and offer to stop for beverages, I've even carried 2 key fobs and left the car running while showing a home. I know its only a few months of this and then blissful weather for a long time. In fact the days of really unbearable weather are so few compared to other states. I find myself watching the weather channel in the winter, viewing Chicago, Boston and Michigan hoping to glimpse a family member out shoveling snow in a raging blizzard, just a fantasy. But here in Phoenix, this is one of THOSE weeks.
There is one thing however that is so very tempting, calls my name and even my clients want to do it. We are working hard looking for that perfect home, getting in and out of hot cars. We are going into scorching homes that feel like an oven, where even the bugs lay lifeless in the corners.
Those Pools! Shining ripples of cool water, light sprays of mist, slides and so many kinds of inventive waterfalls.
Last weekend after viewing 6 homes, I found myself, the couple I was with, and their 2 children standing like zombies at the edge of the pool just staring at the water. Some pools even have a large shallow step good for wading. I have had a few toe dippers, but mostly we just drool. If only we could all jump in.
Once, while showing a mom and her two boys in the summer we had just one more house to look at, but the boys were over it, we were verging on torture in their minds. My client suggested the boys play in the front yard while she quickly walked thru, they agreed. We did a quick run thru and peeked out to see the boys playing happily in the front yard....fountain. Wading and splashing one another. I envied them.
One of the hardest to resist. Popsicle anyone!
