Ah....I learned what Buyers feel when they know they LOVE a certain house. I now understand what buyers feel when they finally find the house they can't live without. The house that they are already mentally decorating as soon as they walk in the front door!
I've been a realtor for four years and I've never seen a house that made me want to sell everything I have, buy it and move. This house made me want to start packing...and I hate packing. Tonight I saw a house online that I wanted so bad I could taste it. A real "Make Me Buy This Home"
It's five acres, in Washougal, WA with more than 5 bedrooms, and close to town. It's a spectacular home. I loved everything about it. I loved how it looks tall and commanding on the outside, I loved the beautiful gourmet kitchen, I loved that it has a 3 car garage. It's a stunning home and it's even a low price. A price so low that I immediately told myself..."if it seems too good to be true, it probably is."
Like a hungry buyer....I wanted to read the rmls over and over, squeezing every ounce of information out of it to learn what my home might look like.
As a realtor, I rarely watch visual tours, but with this home for sale....I watched the visual tour. I was so disappointed...it turned out to be a poor visual tour. When I loaded it, it turned out to be merely a list of pictures, not even a real visual tour. But nonetheless, I looked through every picture offered, trying to piece together in my mind what the home would look like if I were walking through it, entertaining or playing with the grandchildren there. Amazing.
I thought and thought. I showed the pictures to my husband. And...alas, it's not to be. I'm going to have to show this home to other potential buyers. This beautiful home will belong to someone else, not me. sigh. Someone is going to love it and make it their own, not mine.
