My blog has fallen into the toilet today, well not my blog, but the buyers cell phone fell in the toilet. How? What? Where? you must be asking... Well... while showing a home for sale. Mr. Buyer got separated from the group. As I walked back upstairs in this Manchester NH area home, I could hear talking. He was in the bathroom, door closed and obviously on the phone.
There was the flush of the toilet then a blood curdling scream. What the? As Mr. buyer is yelling, swearing and making his way out of the bathroom shaking his dripping wet cell phone.
It leads me to ask the following questions:
When is it OK to use a bathroom when looking at a home?
Why do people talk on the phone while going to the bathroom?
Is this buyer going to buy this home?
The answers may be simple, but simple and common sense can be lost these days. It is not Ok to use a bathroom when looking at a home. Even if you really have to go, the seller can still be upset.
I do not know why people insist on talking on the phone when they hit the bathroom. I do see it often in restaurants and yesterday, at the airport.
As far as the home, the buyer loves it. After realizing the Iphone X is wife said he could not get, he now can, the sting of the wet phone wore off. The problem is, this is the first home this buyer saw. His buyer agent who did not attend said showing, said he should see a few more homes and then decide. The home went under contract and this buyer missed out. He called and begged for me to present it offer. He chided and cursed his agent. He wanted this home and knew it day 1.
The moral of the story is that there is a difference from agent to agent. That a Buyer or Seller should not choose just any agent, choose the BEST agent for the job. My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.
