Today I Had the Police Called On ME

Real Estate Agent with Cutler Real Estate

I recently sold a HUD house in Perry township. My buyers decided to have a home inspection done.

In order  for us to have the inspections done, HUD  gives us 3 days to have the property de-witerized, utilities turned on and inspections completed.

I had a two hour time frame for the water and gas company to come and turn on the utilities. I decided to take a good book and park in the driveway of the property and wait very patiently. I wasn't even there a half hour until not one but two Perry police cars drive up. I wondered what was going on, but then the two officers started walking up the driveway to my car. I got out and explained about being the Realtor ,Hud properties and utilities.

This is definitely a first for me. Either a neighbor has too much time on their hands or they really have a good neighborhood watch.

Did I really look that threatening sitting in my car, reading a book?

Where are the police when the copper pipes are being stolen out of the vacant houses?  Hunting down suspicious looking Realtors!

Candy, you do look kind of threatening sometimes.  ha ha.  I wonder where the police are when I accidently set off the burglar alarms of the houses that don't turn them off before we show it??  It never fails, they always go off on me.  How'd you get a 2 hour time frame for the gas?  They almost always give a 4 hour window.
