While showing a couple a Bank owned home in Northern Virginia the Monday before Christmas I got an unwelcome surprise. Since the power was off the home was rather dark and while leading the couple into the lower level I noted the floor was an unusual dark and consistent color. I soon found out why. As I stepped off the last step my foot sank in ankle deep water. Needless to say this was not the "Home of Choice." As bad as I felt with a cold wet foot I'm sure the listing agent felt a lot worse when I told him what he was facing.
