Does the snake come with the house?

Andrea Bedard was correct with her comment back to me, we see snakes in my area as well, but not many in town.  If one wants to live up in the hills they should know that the snakes were there before they were, haha.

Just another day in the exciting life of a REALTOR®! This was a feedback I never saw coming!

Imagine the look on my face when I read the feedback that had just come in on a hot new listing: "My buyers loved loved loved the house, but for the snake." My smile quickly turned into a big question mark! Snake? What snake? And oh no.. we have 6 more showings today! 

Before my imagination went wild (fueled by an encounter with a rattle snake a few years ago), I called the showing agent to quickly get to the bottom of it. What kind of snake are we talking? Size? And where did they see her? Or him? Inside? At the door? Patio? I had so many questions! The house came with a beautiful yard, and a wooded area - can't blame a snake for wanting to live there, too! Although I am no herpetologist but the snake turned out to be harmless, and a baby of a garden variety. My seller took it with humor - after the initial confusion.  

Does the snake come with the house?A wildlife expert was called in that same evening, found the snake, and relocated her to a safe place... outside, far, far away from my listing!

The snake most definitely would not come with this house! 

No animals or humans were harmed in the eviction of the intruder. Showings resumed without another incidence, and the property was under contract shortly thereafter!

Just another day in the exciting life of a REALTOR® :)

Morning Brian.

Want to see a house come on the market quick, let my wife see a snake in our home.  She wouldn't set a foot in it again, as would I
