We all seem to think it can never happen to us. We’ve convinced ourselves, even. We labor under the belief that it’s simply impossible to find ‘The One’ without ever even trying. But we, the educated, the cynical, and the determined homebuyers of today … we are ohhhhh so wrong…
Is it really possible to walk into the very first home we see and fall head over heels in love? To throw out all of our inhibitions, write up an offer and take the big plunge? Could this really be it? Are we crazy??
An entire TV industry has succeeded in convincing us that we must traipse through mud, sweat and tears before we have a even hope of landing a great property. So we saddle up and research the internet, create profiles on Trulia and Zillow, read blogs, and take copious notes. We compare schools, neighborhoods and analyze market reports. We see dozens of homes ‘just to be sure’. Otherwise, how can we really know for sure?
This is the part where I remind all of the ‘WE’s’ brave enough to have read this far of the value of aligning with a terrific Realtor®! We see dozens of properties every week (if not more!), so we know a great one when we see it. We really do! Believe it or not, we actually listen to you. But even more… we read your mind and ‘feel’ what you love even before you figure out what that might actually be. A true Realtor isn’t a salesman at all. We’re fishwives, geniuses at matching our Buyers with their perfect Dream Home. Even if it’s the first place you see. But isn’t that a bit crazy, you ask?
Over the past few months, I’ve closed a handful of sales that have played out just this way. One and done! And we were right on the money too. In our current Charlotte market, great homes are scarce, and acting decisively is crucial. Bidding wars are back in play. The winners are those that trust their hearts and their Realtors®.
It gets me thinking… maybe I should tinker a bit and create a special ‘Home Buyer Love Potion’ to serve up to my new clients. Something sweet and bracing to enjoy as we go adventuring through our first home tour. They’ll get all dreamy and starry-eyed and compliant. Back they will travel to a time when they revisit the world through the lens of their childhood innocence, losing their inhibitions and suspicions. They will know ‘house love’ the moment they open the door. And if they don’t… perhaps I’ll pour myself a drink!
