The day began as a typical Saturday. Out of town buyers were here with the sole purpose of finding a home. It rained on us the preceding day, so I put my boots in the back of the truck, knowing we would be in "new construction" territory and the boots could come in handy.
Just as we arrived in the neighborhood, the heavens opened and the largest rain drops ever seen pelted down on us.
Driveways hadn't been poured, so accessing the house was an uphill climb. We attempted our ascent through muddy terrain by traversing rocks, scrap lumber, and sparse grassy areas, slipping and sliding part of the way.
By lunchtime, we accomplished what we set out to do. The buyers chose the house they wanted and we went our separate ways. They were going sight seeing while I was going to write their offer.
Except, as luck would have it, I didn't made it home. I was halfway there when I found myself stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire. It was a 30 minute wait for the tow truck and another three hours at the dealership buying two new tires.
"They" say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I leave you with this...
The moral of the story... when showing new construction, don't leave home without an extra pair of boots, and be careful where you park!
