So, I get a call from an agent who wants to show my listing to their client. How exciting!
The seller needs the funds from the home to move to assisted living. She is rather healthy with exception of needing to use a wheelchair.
We then need to have family or a friend accompany her while she insists on leaving the house for the showing. She wants the buyers to get the true feeling of her home.
Most of this is spelled out in agent remarks so that the buyers' agent is sensitive to the situation.
Now its showing day. I get there 30 minutes early. For certain the woman had left something out that she would need me to tuck away. Again, she is very excited!
The agent and her buyers come to the home 45 minutes late, no call. They walk up to the farmer's porch (which is nicely appointed with hung flowers). The agent immediately says "oh, i didn't know there wasn't a garage, my people definitely need a garage". I then pull her aside and ask if she looked at the pictures as it was absolutely clear that the home did not have a garage. No answer. They did not even extend the courtesy of viewing the home, the seller had even left cookies.
Now...to explain to my seller.
