|Daytona Beach Real Estate & Community Events blog. By Lisa C. Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!"|
I recently posted a blog about a house I sold last week, that was in the worst condition I had ever seen. I also mentioned in that post that the listing agent for that house pretty much acted like he didn't want to sell the house. It was the worst transaction I've ever had.
Well, a little while ago I was just reading a couple of recent real estate blog posts by Broker Bryant titled "Does that 50 Cents Have to Be on the HUD?" and "Increase Property Showings by Treatng Your Peers with Respect". In writing this post, I was only going to reference these three posts, but then I also read one by Elizabeth Nieves titled F.S.B.O. does not stand for "material Facts Should Be Optional".
So what do all these seemingly typical real estate blog posts have in common? I mean, every one of these posts was just another story about REALTOR® experiences. But I happened to notice one common element in all these posts. Well, actually it was a missing common element. This missing element was sometimes missing from an listing agent, as in my post. In Elizabeth's post, the missing element was missing from certain real estate sellers. And in Broker Bryant's posts, it was missing from a selling agent. So what was this missing element? Very simply put, it was COMMON SENSE! What the heck has happened to everyone's common sense? In order to understand my perspective, you'll need to read the referenced posts. But in the harsh light that exposes the loss of much-needed common sense, I thought we should take a moment to mourn it's loss.
So shall we right now take a moment of silence, to mourn the loss of our old friend "Common Sense". If anyone has knowledge of any living relatives of Common Sense, would you mind contacting them? We could really use their assistance.
