This wall in a South Charlotte foreclosure had my buyer laughing

This past weekend our team was showing first time buyers homes in many of South Charlotte's neighborhoods. We saw mostly bank owned, short sales and foreclosures, but every third house was owner occupied. One of the homes that we saw was a bank owned foreclosure that had my buyers in hysterics. Here is a shot of one of the secondary bedrooms. This is the biggest wall in the room.

South Charlotte foreclosure

 

I had to agree with them that this would not be my style, but perhaps the previous owner needed to be reminded that after a hard days work that they would eventually get to lounge on the beach for a vacation or something.

It is always fun to encounter such things when showing property because it gives you an opportunity to tell the buyers about other, often worse things you have seen in other homes that are for sale. I told them, as any good agent would that this is cosmetic and that if they love the house, "lets make an offer."

 

 

Here is a list of all of the DISTRESSED HOMES in the South Charlotte and Union County areas.

Lisa, I believe strongly in  the powers of humor. I come up with things so sporadically, its hard to remember them. But, the customers will remember you!

Hmm, I would consider keeping that wall, must have cost a pretty penny!
