Real Talk: When Just Fishing

 

Agent calls on behalf of client to ask several questions about a listing. I gladly answer, then inquired if an offer was in the works. She said, "He's fishing." "I said, "When he returns, please ask your client."

 

She then said, "No, no, he's just fishing!" 

 

Ohhhhh!...HE'S JUST FISHING!

 

She went on to tell me this was not his first 'testing of the waters', that he has been 'just fishing'  for more than 2+ years.

 

Purchasing a home two years ago would have bought a home that fit the search criteria, including price point. Now that prices have gone up, nothing comes close to fulfilling his wants and needs.

 

Oh well...If I was fishing right now in the middle of our favorite lake, a good size trout would fulfill the Wish List right now!

Hello Wanda - near the sea and far away, not all fish stories are whoppers or "the ones that got away".  Reeling in the information can prove quite useful at the end of day.  Afterall, maybe it's really fry-day.

Deep fried Halibut with homemade tartar sauce and fries sounds really good right now, Michael Jacobs. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Hi Wanda- I can't top Michael Jacobs's comment!!!!!  I had a neighbor many years ago who was always listing his house to see what he could get.

Funny, you say that, Kathy Streib. My clients were interested in a property until finding out it was for sale on and off since 2009. They passed on it!

Love the photo and the message. There are several types of fishing; the one in the photo is the fun one!

I have had clients like that and it is frustrating.  I will often keep them updated but I am not running around for someone that is just fishing, haha.

Usually by now we have been on the lake several times, Kat Palmiotti, we do enjoy spending time there. Work comes first though!

Until a client is ready to buy, sending them properties online makes sense rather than going on fishing excursions with them because I am definitely not a tour guide, Brian England!

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! life is too short to be a tour guide!  I became an official angler when I hooked a snook and a red fish in the same day.  One was a keeper😎  It was a Commercial Real Estate event in Tampa FL when I was involved with CREW

Now, that 's the kind of fishing I can support, Eileen Burns. The other, not so much!
