Sunday Humor

I had some past clients who like to "test the waters" every so often as they are THINKING about moving.   BUT, only if they find the right house.  Luckily, I just love this family and have sold them many homes.

 

Today they wanted to go to open houses, and they know, if any questions are asked, I will answer, as the listing agent or agent holding the open house doesn't need any of their personal information.

 

So, at the very first home, the neighbors were there will the listing agent, and they started asking personal questions, so we promptly left.   After getting in the car, my clients were REALLY funny.   Their "back story" was they have 6 kids, 4 barking dogs and would need to find a place for the playset and trampoline in the backyard.   And, good thing the driveway was long, as they have 4 kids living at home with cars.   

 

Would have loved to see the faces of those neighbors if they had shared that!   We came up with some creative stories to tell if needed.

 

Happy Sunday, and nothing like a bit of laughter while showing homes!

Hannah Williams no, just at the first one, where the neighbors (or maybe it was the sellers?) were being very nosy with my clients.     I would have loved to see their faces if my client would have answered..... LOL

RV parking takes on a whole new meaning Joan when a buyer is looking for a home where their kids can live in RVs parked in the driveway and front of the home. Yikes. Jeff

Jeff, they weren't going to do this, but if a nosy neighbor wants to "grill them", they were some of their stories.

Jeff, when we walked in, the open house agent and her husband along with the nosy neighbors were in the doorway, and no book to sign.

Yes, somehow the neighbors want to interrogate any potential new neighbors.
