Flies, Flies and flies.
About five years ago I relocated to Port St Lucie Florida. I was of course an experienced agent but I was not familiar with the area.
I was working with a buyer and decided to preview the homes before showing them to the customer. That way I could familarise myself with the homes and the neighbourhood.
I went to a listing owned and listed by an investor. He gave the the access code for me to preview. I went about the property making mental notes of the property pros and cons.
I entered the kitchen it was newer but no granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. I opened the fridge to look at the condition inside, when flies, flies and more flies came swaming out at me like a big black ball. I let go of the fridge door handle, leaving it wide open and ran out of the house for my safety and most of all my sanity.
To this day I NEVER open a fridge in a property that is not my listing, and I advise my buyers that they open the fridge doors at their own peril.
