Another Story Hard to Believe, or is it?

See if you can guess which one of these things are fake.
  1. 1. Buyer shows up wearing bright blue, yellow, red, orange and purple fingernail polish.
  2. 2. Buyer has on a woman's diamond engagement ring on his ring finger.
  3. 3. A friend shows up and proceeds to pull a box of cards and dice and a clear plastic tube with 2 felt placemats out of his coat. The 2 of them play a game of Magic the Gathering on the kitchen island countertop.
  4. 4. The sewer line drains just fine and no water starts bubbling up into the basement through the floor drain. All ductwork is in great shape with no remnants of friable asbestos. The main beam in just fine, noone has chain sawed it nearly all the way through. The chimney brick is not falling off the chimney into the front yard.
Good guessing. From the files of now I've seen everything.

Hello Scott - as a long-time resident of California and after many years in real estate, any of things you mentioned wouldn't necessarily raise an eyebrow by me.

Scott Seaton Jr. Bourbonnais Kankakee IL Home Inspector - in this world,, anything is possible! This one made me smile and laugh. It really is a WYSIWYG world when it comes to home inspections and homes for sale! Where on earth did you find that Yellow Submarine? Now, I can't get that song out of my head!

Beatles fan my whole life, so Beatles things get searched every so often. This one just popped up on a search. Since I turned 64 on June 22, "When I'm 64" has been the song in my head all the time.

Scott Seaton Jr. Bourbonnais Kankakee IL Home Inspector -Happy belated birthday! I completely forgot that song, "When I'm 64," but what an oldie and a goodie! I think everytime a Boomer turns 64, family and guests should play that song and sing it instead of Happy Birthday. I'm glad to know I wasn't the only forever Beatles fan!

Hi Scott Seaton Jr. Bourbonnais Kankakee IL Home Inspector I'm guessing all of those things happened.  I've been doing this long enough that nothing surprises me anymore.  Love the Yellow Submarine!
