My Mom Always Says I Should Write a Book.........

I try to understand my buyers and their needs so that I can best serve their Real Estate needs but I must say that there are those times that I simply don't get it!!  I had this buyer who I showed over 50 homes to, yes 50!!!!!!!!  (it was a long time ago and I won't do that again)  This particular buyer was a very nice person who was looking for a home for him and his family; this buyer had a list of very specific needs.  We started looking at homes and in each and every home the buyer used a clip board and walked around counted the outlets in every room.  At first I thought the buyer liked the house and wanted to know how many outlets were in each room so I excitely asked the buyer "so you really like this house and think it fits your families needs"?  The buyer said, "oh no this home is not for us".  In my mind I was scratching my head wondering than why are you counting the outlets if this isn't the home for you?  We continued to see homes for about the next 3 months and the buyer counted the outlets in every home!! YES, EVERY DARN HOME! I wonder why do you stay in a home for 1/2 hour or more counting outlets if you know the moment you walk in the door that this isn't the home for you?  I guess I'll never understand!! 

That is one of my many true stories that I am preparing for my book which I will dedicate to my Mom.
