Pondering on a Sunday

A bit too bored lately, so making plans with friends and clients for dinner and happy hour, but would sure like to show a home!   IF we had any homes that would match the critieria for my many buyers.   I have quite a few, but they ALL are specific.

 

So, since I have time on my hands, put a lot of thought into buying a camper trailer.   Will be doing less real estate in the next year or two, and planning on doing more traveling.    After my research, have decided driving my car and staying at hotels is still more affordable.     I have a short trip in the hopper, and thinking of taking the kitties.  THAT should be exciting!   Izzi will 7 months by then, and Lucy will be 10 months.  Will they still be terrors?    Will my seats be shredded?   I will be taking them with me.

 

Had a promising call this week, I thought.   Then she said she would text and email her specific needs, and only got a text WITH A LINK.  No way am I going to click on that.   No email.   Oh well, another bites the dust!

Hi Joan... I can related to the "no homes to show" problem... suffering with it right now... although today and tomorrow we wouldn't be showing even if we had homes to show... Charlotte is just one big ice rink right now.

Nina Hollander, Broker I heard the Carolinas were expecting an ice storm, so good thing you are staying home.  Stay safe my friend!

The days can get boring when the client's needs are so precise and the inventory so lacking.  Taking a road trip does help the body and mind

Nina, inventory is definitely an issue right now, plus these buyers are being pickier than usual.

Buzz Mackintosh I had not heard that, OH MY.    My Izzi is quite the terror, so maybe fitting.

Hi Joan- I like the idea of road trips but the camper-trailer would be too much for me to handle by myself. But, glad you're planning some time off to refresh.

Kathy, that is what I decided in the end too, easier to jump in the car and stay at hotels.

I am with you and definitely enjoy driving my car and staying in a hotel rather than in an RV.

Brian England I am used to space, and that travel trailer just was too tiny.   I am with you, use our car, stay in a hotel.

Hi Joan Cox - Like you, I have a lot of buyers but no homes to show them because of their amenity list. There is nothing more frustrating.

The homes I have found for buyers usually do not show well on the internet and if I move fast, I get in and get a contract because others are passing them over.  I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Sheri, I have one investor that can overlook things, but if they are overpriced, the sellers are usually still getting the higher prices, and he isn't willing to do that.

Joan Cox Travelling with the kitties shall be an adventure. Do you have a van? If so, you can get one of those decent size "cages", and put all their accoutrements in it!

Wendy Rulnick , I have an SUV, and did find a "two-story condo" that will fit in the back seat and secured with a seatbelt.    I did travel with my older kitty, she was very laid back.  These two terrors may be a different story.   Will do a short trip first!
