Surprises While Showing Property Yesterday

Surprises While Showing Property Yesterday

 

Yesterday while showing my buyers a home in Yucaipa CA, we came across several visitors in the yard. First we heard chickens clucking and there was a group of 5 or 6 just on the other side of the fence. Then here walks up a big rooster on our side of the fence. My buyers thought it was a great feature and did not see it as a problem. 

Of course, I ran out to get my phone and take a few photos. Chuck-Chuck- and Cockadoodle-Do!

 

If you are looking for a buyers or listing agent in Yucaipa and nearby, give me a call as I am familiar with the neighborhoods.

Thanks for reading my Real Estate blog.

OMG, so did the chicken cross the road? Always fun to see those free rangers.

Good morning Kristin. I'm glad your buyers didn't mind the chickens and the house rooster. It wouldn't have been good for me.

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten 

Yes, I think they are but perhaps on holidays or Sundays everyone likes to sleep in a little.

Hi Michael Jacobs 

Yes, many people like to keep chickens and get fresh eggs every morning. Unfortunately where I live, my HOA would kick me out. It is more trendy!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat 

Does the appraiser have to count them during the appraisal? On the day it records, what if the rooster is visiting? Interesting arguments!

Kristen - I couldn't find my original comment on this blog, and don't remember commenting.  So odd!

However, chickens are personal property so probably don't need to be counted by the appraiser.  If it's a rooster and only visiting, it could be considered a pesky neighbor if it's crows in the early morning hours.  Perhaps a seller would need to disclose it!

It's nice to see a bit of the country in the urban areas. What fun, and I'm glad your buyers appreciated the chickens.

Hi Jeff Dowler CRS 

Imagine....a visiting rooster could cause an argument with the owners. I am sure every state has different laws for these cute roosters and chickens.

Hi Mike Baltierra 

Yes once I had a rooster following me while showing a house. Finally I turned around and yelled at the rooster and started running towards him. He ran off and we never saw him again.

Hi Gita Bantwal 

It is a really nice home and in a semi rural area and they love animals. Perfect match for them.

Hi Joanna Cohlan 

He just went next door but he might be crossing the road too. Didn't seem to be any supervision from his owners next door?

Hi Sheila Anderson 

When I first moved I used to hear a rooster every morning about 4:45 am but do not hear him anymore. Moved or gone??

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat 

We will see if the owner discloses that pesky neighbor. He was so cute and just wanted to folllow one of my buyers around the yard.

Hi Debbie Laity 

Yucaipa, CA  is an area of mixed rural and urban homes which adds to the popularity  for buyers.

Seeing chickens in one's yard is not un-common here. My daughter keeps four chickens in her back yard and they yield 4 eggs daily.
